Work here only to avoid unemployment

Research Associate (Former Employee)
White Marsh, MD

ProsThe only reason to work at CoStar is the pay and the benefits. Compared to other employers they are, on average, higher.

ConsPlan on selling your soul. I was asked to many things that would be deemed unethical by two layers of management. Senior management will change pay scale and bonus scheldule on a whim. At an office I worked at yearly turnover was over 75%. A few people quite every week, including managers.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet some training on how to treat people. Respect is key in keeping employees motivated. Also, just because you can do it, doesn't mean you should. Finally, treat you customers better.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
