I worked at Word & Brown

Pros

There were several business opportunities, and a lot of job openings at one time 3 years ago, when I first joined the company. It seemed like the future was rosy.

Cons

However, the President of our division decided to disband and closed our operations and move it out of state. proceeded to lay everyone off which were a few hundred people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Spend money on employees not on yachts to take trips to Catalina, and around Newport Harbor for entertaining prospective brokers. Spend the money on retaining talented employees.

    I have been working at Word & Brown full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Working environment is outstanding. I love everyone I work with and work for. The Christmas Party and Employee Appreciation Day are the highlights of the year. Owners are accessible and pretty down to earth.

    Cons

    The wages are not as high as other places in the industry. There are some issues with management playing favorites. Some occasions where family members work under one another.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look to give opportunities to people within the company. There are a lot of talented people who work for the company and are not given the opportunity to prove themselves.

    Excellent Benefits at this company. Great owners. Terrible mid and upper management. Employees have a sense of entitlement.

    Get rid of mid management. too many vice presidents and directors.
