    Dysfunctional Workplace

    Full Time Staff (Former Employee) Austin, TX

    ProsIf you're after a steady paycheck, this is definitely the right place.

    ConsCareer growth is mentioned in almost all job descriptions for corporate positions. Unfortunately, career growth is not based on one's background, knowledge, qualifications or ability. It merely depends on if you're part of the right social circle. Positions are often given to uncredentialed and under-qualified relatives and friends, and they are hired without jobs being posted.

    Director of HR, for an example, is uncredentialed. Her job is to please the executives rather than being the advocate for both the company and the people who work in the company.

    Of all departments, MarCom likely to be the worst of all. Can't expect much from this team when it's led by someone with very limited experience and often makes decisions based on emotions. Lots of blaming throughout the entire company. Management cares only for their personal gain.

    Most leaders, besides the President of MAPS, fail to identify talents. When they see talents, they see them as threats. This explains the exceedingly high turnover rate.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop cloaking yourself with lies and preaching Christianity when staff are often being mistreated. Identify those capricious leaders as they are the main cause of this workplace being toxic.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Middle of the Road

    Marketing Assistant (Former Employee) Kansas City, KS

    ProsFlexible, and good team effort.

    ConsCompensation was on the lower end for what you were expected to do. They also have company values based in religion and family. Which can be nice if that is what you are looking for, but as a single young female I found it to be a bit unsettling. There also isn't a ton of room to grow and advance internally. Leaving would be necessary.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPerhaps pushing the position responsibilities over the values, and maybe some research into current slaries based on location to avoid quick turnover of employees.

    Great company on a national level.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Mount Pleasant, SC

    ProsHighly cultural organization. Family oriented, abundant training and coaching provided for agents. High moral and cultural standards and cares for their people in a major way.

    ConsNeeds the same level of training for employed staff.
    Locally management is MUCH less than ethical to work for. Only driven by the almighty dollar. Company culture and standards not adhered to.

    Great place to start your career in Real Estate!!

    Realtor (Current Employee) Orlando, FL

    ProsTons of classes to attend depending on what you're struggling with at the time. Friendly working atmosphere, (most) people are super nice and very willing to help.
