Approves of CEO

Pros

Very little internal competition, good training program. Great mentoring program. Solid senior brokers in the atlanta office with great experience.

Cons

Lots of cold calling. Few potential clients have heard of UGL Equis. Very few opportunities for inbound business. The office shrunk from 12 brokers to 5 over the past year. Unlikely to offer a draw anytime soon.

Advice to Management

Continue to build brand; invest more in regional offices. Give better opportunities to involve junior brokers in more deals for experience.

    cheap ownership in the Aussies - not great leadership - management is kind of a mess - marketing has a tough role in telling a story that is yet to be written

    Communicate more, more frequently, celebrate wins, improve on org development issues

    Pros

    Potential jumping off point to another company. They do give year end bonuses. There is a certain amount of autonomy to get your work done.

    Cons

    the company is sinking to the competition in some of its markets. Benefits (specifically health/medical, dental and vision) are atrociously overpriced. In non-headquarters locations, supplies are scarce. My first day, I was forced to connect my own computer (IT in Chciago did not provide information to the Office Manager as to how to connect it) and go to Staples to buy my own supplies (and while I was reimbursed for some, I was not compensated for all of them). I also (for the duration of my time at Equis) was set up in their small conference room, because there were no free desks to set up my workstation. Although during my tenure employees left, freeing up space, I was never moved.

    Advice to Management

    Even if you are in a remote location (i.e., work in Chicago, staff works in Philadelphia or Denver) make sure to keep communication lines open. Don't wait until it's too late to get in touch.
