    Pros

    KW's model is untouchable compared to the other local brokerages. No other company offers profit sharing amongst the agents (the opportunity to build wealth and allow for retirement at some point in my life)) rather than the owners keeping all of the profit for themselves, the most current technology (agent websites with easy navigation for clients, back end website for agents, and an online filing system that can be shared with clients), education offered on a daily basis (they want you to succeed and have the top agents showing you the path to get there), and a family culture where people are team players and go out of their way to help.... yes, in a busy office there are actually people who are always available to help and want you to succeed. I previously worked at an office where the commission splits were high and where everyone works very independently, which was great for awhile and I thought the best deal available, but when I learned of KW coming to town and compared the amount of money I gave to my office (all to the owners) vs what I would have paid to KW, it was unreal. Literally 2.5x more expensive to work at my previous company, which had me at a 95/5 split and monthly rent. No opportunity for growth there and no synergy.

    Cons

    As a realtor you are responsible for your own health insurance. I'm fortunate that I'm covered under my husband, but benefits are not offered at KW and other real estate offices. KW has preferred vendors they work with for discounted prices, but I don't know much about it. Just be aware that this cost is on you and be sure to inquire when interviewing.

    Pros

    Culture, & Training. Keller Williams has been the best company I've worked for hands down. I can walk down the hall to the multi million dollar producing agent, and they'll help me anyway they can! Constantly offered training, constantly having fun social activities. It's a very positive environment.

    Cons

    If its possible, sometimes the good times are distracting..... Nope, there are no Cons

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work guys!

    Pros

    The best thing about working for Keller is the culture. Keller Williams is a agent centric company that provides training for agents of all levels.

    Cons

    Keller Williams has over 80,000 agent. At a local level office can range between 80 to 150 agents. One can get lost in the numbers.

    I have been working at Keller Williams

    Pros

    You are your own boss, who doesn't like that?

    Cons

    The commission splits hurt and all of the other hidden fees no one talks about. Make sure you keep track of what you're getting paid. The person cutting the check is a human and does make mistakes.

    Pros

    Great company culture, awesome training, coworkers and office staff are very helpful and supportive, flexible work schedule free education and training classes and good income potential.

    Cons

    No real estate leads are provided/you have to generate all your own leads and business, monthly expenses of insurance and office fees can be hard got new agents, office advertising is almost nonexistent so our company is not well know in our city.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More hands on training out in the field would be useful as opposed to classroom training.

    Pros

    The commission scale is great. They provide a great deal of training prior to and during your career.

    Cons

    The only issue i had was not with the company itself more with the industry. I felt like i was trying to sell things to people that they didn't want or need. Again this was a personal issue and in no way reflects on the company itself.

    Pros

    This is my third Realty company in Texas. I should have joined them since the beginning. I came from a smaller, local firm, and KW simply blows them out of the water with their tools and training available. Every agent gets 3 websites as part of their monthly fee. We also get our own branded mobile app. Our market center has weekly training classes on all sorts of topics. Every seasoned agent is available to help. KW has a unique win, win mentality. I love it!

    Cons

    I can't think of any negatives for this company.
