I worked at CoStar Group full-time (less than a year)

Pros

CoStar Group is a good job for recent grads who are interested in commercial real estate. I started out there, and then was able to get a better paying job as a research analyst at another commercial real estate company. They have great health care and other benefits. They also give out quarterly bonuses, which can really add up.

Cons

It is an intense job, with some recent hires being fired during phone training. However, CoStar rarely fires researchers after they get a couple months under their belt

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Although a lot is said about providing opportunities for researchers to grow, you need to make sure that those opportunities are readily available for well performing researchers. You should have a lot more training classes for researchers to be promoted to research associate II.

    I worked at CoStar Group full-time

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
