    Cons

    With any young company, there is a lot of change, can be frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing, but I would ask you to find ways to max talent's of every employee to push the company forward. Company is small now, but has pretty good talent. Try to help them reach their full potential.

    Pros

    There are always growth opportunities- even into other departments. HomeFinder recognizes talent when they see it. Culture is one of a kind. HomeFinder is what you make of it- if you want a company where you can go above and beyond and make proposals to the CEO and senior directors, then this is the place you want to be. It is one in a million where you can say on your resume "I proposed this to the senior director...." and made it happen.

    Cons

    We're still growing- but can be a positive because there are more great things to come.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always try to reward those who show their commitment and loyalty to our brand.

    Pros

    It's a great group of people that are all focused on making our product and the company better. I really like the flexible environment and culture.

    Cons

    Fixing past mistakes takes some focus away from growth. Seems like the company is making the right commitments to fix those. I'm optimistic about the future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep pushing in the direction you are going.

    Pros

    The culture here is relaxed and laid back but the employees are passionate and have a drive to produce a great product which makes for a truly amazing experience! How could you not enjoy working at a place that has a motorized cooler you can ride around the office on!

    Cons

    I can't think of anything that could be considered a company con at the moment. Maybe we communicate through email too much but I think that is more of a personal preference?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work!

    Great company but...

    Pros

    There is a lot of potential here. The company is making strides and positioning itself to be a major player in the game.

    Cons

    Management leaves a lot to be desired. Upper management is great but below them you have...well I don't know what you have.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Showing up would be a great start.

    Pros

    Management cares about developing their employees, and those with initiative can go far, both in terms of job responsibilities and learning valuable skills. I truly feel that everyone at HomeFinder is passionate about their job and helping the bottom line. A nice benefit is that management has your back, and gives you the benefit of the doubt as an employee.

    Cons

    Online real estate is a tough industry with stiff competition, with Zillow, Trulia, and Redfin. It's hard to stand out. That said, we have loads of paying, happy customers and loyal users, so it's great to know that we're really providing value, regardless of our volume relative to the bigger guys.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing, and thanks for the never-ending opportunities to grow my skills!
