    I have been working at Homes.com full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent work environment. Challenging product set with an atmosphere for growth

    Cons

    Not the highest paying company in the industry. Pay can become stagnant

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Financially reward those who perform. This will help keep the top people motivated to stay. Communicate a clear company vision and plan for growth.

    I have been working at Homes.com full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a job. The umbrella company at least pretends to try. Good to tide you over until you can get out. Good if you are stuck in the area for family.

    Cons

    This is a horribly managed company. Maybe Dave Mele will turn things around but right now the only thing he cares about is putting more ads on the site. There's no long term investment in the staff. They are treated disrespectfully. If you want to work for a company that recognizes that innovation is in the product itself and in the customer service, don't work here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The focus on sales is doomed. the ads for homes and renatls are not a platform for selling more ads. Solve customer problems = winning

    Pros

    A lot of old technologies to maintain. You don't have to worry bout getting rich.

    Cons

    The pay is much lower than market so everyone leaves after a year or two. The management is incompetent to say the least.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some

    Pros

    Nice Co Worker. my Manager ( Mary Ellen) was awesome and should be running the company! The job is fun, enjoyed working with clients.

    Cons

    THe Upper Management has no idea of what they are doing, or any clue what it is like in the field. Products rarely work as promised.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees, get out and actually talk to clients and learn what they want and need. Stop raising costs.

    Pros

    compensation was fair at the time . . but never really kept up with the increasing cost of living

    Cons

    Was promised the world when they took over our company, at first things were ok, nothing spectacular then Homes.com closed down our location consolidating our company into another location. was told when they took over, that I was welcome too reapply for a job that I had for several years before I had ever head of homes.com

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't make promises that you're not willing too keep

    Pros

    Great people , Very flexible work hours and time off when needed. Not afraid to explore new technology. Opinions and new ideas welcomed

    Cons

    Pay could be better, Sales team needs more discpline when selling products. They tend to over-promise in sales putting customer service and the technology teams in a bad spot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to reward and pay our top performers to stay with the company.

    Pros

    They are very understanding of family matters, fun people to work with.

    Cons

    Pay isn't the greatest. You can get more from other companies. They tend to drag their feet on reviews and promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really evaluate your talent and pay them according to market value.

    Pros

    The people I work with are great. Management is a bit scattered but overall, the company is stable. The building is nice and the transportation system/parking benefits are good.

    Cons

    Lots of mixed messages with little direction as far as what our future holds for us. The leader left the company and the future doesn't look great. There is no profit share or any real benefit to helping the company succeed besides keeping a day job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create clear vision on the path of this company. One minute, we are running advertising all over cable television and growing and the next minute, we are told we are cutting back and to go back to profit mode. Too many mixed messages.
