    Pros

    Keller Williams is a great real estate company where everyone works as an independent contractor yet the company provides great admin support. The administrators are the glue that keeps everything running. They are a great help with dealing with office issues, getting paid, the real estate commission and the local boards. The company provides great opportunities and the training they offer is excellent.

    Cons

    They will hire anyone with a pulse. Some people shouldn't be real estate agents and we would all be better off if they weren't hired in the first place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Only hire people that have potential.

    Pros

    Daily training. Everyone worked together to help each one be successful. It was one of the few places that I would actually consider returning to.

    Cons

    None that I can think of

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Desk fees were reasonable but maybe offer new agents a few months with no fees to help them until they make sales.

    Pros

    Training was good and I was able to learn a lot in my short three months there. Work life balance was good and I had a predictable schedule.

    Cons

    The pay is not the best, and I see little room at advancing further than real estate agent. Many agents also practiced unethical behavior

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep focusing on employee training and agent opportunities. Also work on agent ethics.

    Pros

    Growth is a big factor of this company as a whole. There is always a way to move up in ranks. There is a lot of education and you will gain a lot of experience in this company. Culture is also a huge factor in this company and they stress an 'all for one and one for all' mentality.

    Cons

    Working with real estate agents can be stressful and unpredictable. Certain positions within the company cannot be confused as to who is responsible for what.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More organization and clearer explanation of duties between positions.
