    Pros

    I was compensated well enough to stay for a bit.

    Cons

    CEO is a narcissistic maniac with God and Napoleon complex combined.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house, quit focusing so much on which Ivy League school a person may have attended - there are HORDES of idiots that graduated from Ivy League schools....(previous presidents to go unnamed) Try hiring folks that have actual work experience in the real world outside of the Costar call center.

    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
