There is a lot of great training online but the NYC office focuses more on hiring than developing its current agents

    Pros

    Good communication and lots of training classes, broker support is excellent. Name recognition of the brand is helpful in selling real estate.

    Cons

    Not upfront about actual commission splits, the company takes more money out of your sales than they give the impression of in the interview.

    Pros

    Friendly supportive culture, good commission cap and downline potential for retirement income. Website offers tools helpful to start your business. The KW concepts are invaluable.

    Cons

    Office is sometimes disorganized. Classes are taught by agents and not real trainers. Free training is broad, and high level. I believe the more helpful hands on training is only available for purchase, as I have never seen it offered in the office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer amazing training with cd's and books to the agents for FREE, instead of offering these items for purchase at high prices on the KW site. Offer more live training with real trainers, who can effectively teach the material. Send out satisfaction surveys to the agents via email on a regular basis to find out how things "are really going in the office" since most people won't say anything negative or give constuctive criticism to management in the office, even when they royally screw up. New hire onboarding needs to be tightened up. Team leads would benefit from some HR training on how to onboard effectively. I'm posting my suggestions here, because no one at KW has ever asked for my opinion.
