    Current Employee - Business Development Intern in Atlanta, GA

    I have been working at Marcus & Millichap as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    -My boss was really nice and willing to help me achieve my career goals
    -I learned a lot about what it means to be a real estate professional and how money flows and is made in the industry
    -If you interested in brokerage or commercial real estate, give it a shot

    Cons

    -Boring office
    -Not a lot of colleague interaction unless you look for it. Most people are out of the office in meetings. I made a conscious effort to meet new people so it panned out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Better policies to train and pay interns. I've heard they are getting stricter about interns, which is disappointing

    Pros

    Good place to launch a career and build connections. Good experience working with other people and ability to develop sales skills.

    Cons

    Need to reward employees who work hard, not just the VPs who sit at the top.
    Dress code. Who still needs to wear a tie when you're sitting behind a desk doing most of your work talking to people on the phone?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward your employees or they will walk.
