Can be a lack of challenges in the workplace. Limited competition and incentive to attain business compared to most brokerages. At times the working day can be slow.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great Place to Intern

    Pros

    Camaraderie developed amongst employees
    Hands- on experience (i.e. one on one client interactions)
    Continuous opportunities to learn and develop skills

    Cons

    Lunch breaks are very minimal and limited. Often employees must take lunch at their desk and set it aside when dealing with clients. So essentially there are no breaks. Unless you clock out for 30 mins.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Riney is doing an excellent job thus far as a leader. If any advice is to be given it is for individual departments be readily more available to branches.

    Pros

    Small branch environment makes it easy for you to interact with other employees; technology in terms of computer and software was really great.

    Cons

    Unless you're working at HQ, it's hard to see opportunities for advancement. Once you're a broker, you may eventually become a branch manager, and then what?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep expanding branch size, keep the helicopter for commercials because it's awesome, and giving employees gifts is always appreciated, especially in hard times!
