    Pros

    Free food
    100$ a month for metro/bus

    Cons

    From day one, what I was told I would being doing, never came to fruiton.

    There is no analysis or thinking involved. You simply input data all day long.

    Half of the people around you do not work hard. There are no set initiatives- when there is one, it lasts one week at most.

    The managers do not understand the database because they are hired from the outside.

    There is no opportunity to quickly move up! A promotion according to CoStar is a change in portfolios in a different US region. The job functions DO NOT CHANGE.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the researchers in half, pay them double, and hire intellectual hardworkers.

    This is why I left

    Pros

    Great co-workers, they did bagels on Fridays. That's about all the positives I have for this place.

    Cons

    Do you love constantly changing metrics? Unorganized management? Have a job where every day is like roulette? Then CoStar is for you.

    Advice to Management

    Change! You have to stop ignoring the reviews on here. Your employees hate your company and that should mean something to you.
