Winner takes all mentality. This is not a bad review. This is just fact.

Pros

*Great products. *No competition. *Well-equipped salesforce, ie. iPhone, iPads, Projectors for presentations and meeting. *Nice offices with fruit in fridges. (free breakfast Monday and happy hour Friday)

Cons

*Terrible clientele (cut-throat brokers, appraisers). *Very Unorganized. Terrible CRM. No supportive platform. *Unrealistic expectations. *False promises. *Bad compensation plan (some may say it is unfair). *Low Pay to their salesforce unless you are in the top 5 and in good markets. *Terrible management from the top down. They don't know how to motivate top talents. *Micro-managed. *(Old) Male dominated. Sexist.

Advice to Management

Be fair and treat your employees well. They are the face of the company, that build a strong team. Foster trust and loyalty starting from the bottom up.

    Pros

    There are great people, and wonderful amenities, such as healthy food choices, a small gym and free yoga class three days a week, an amazing holiday party. All things considering the pay is good for what you are doing, I didn't realize that some of outr competitors pay far less considering the we are in the same buisness

    Cons

    The work sucks, its not that the job is terrible but it is repetitive and you will get people that don't want to talk you, Also the metrics don't take into account all of the work you do, like special projects. There may be project yet you are still expected to produce the same amount of work if you weren't doing the project. Also, there is this expectation for quick input of information, very unrealistic.

    Advice to Management

    Get more realistic exceptions of what a reasonable amount of work
