    I have been working at Long & Foster Companies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Full time manager (not a producer) dedicated to your business. Plenty of tools available and education opportunities to take advantage of.

    Cons

    Commission splits can be negotiated as a veteran Realtor, but you have to be factor in misc fees and a different split structure for rentals and BPO's, if that's a part of your business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be shy about promoting personal branding.
