    I worked at Massey Knakal full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great team atmosphere, approachable bosses. No hierarchy. Lots of hands-on exposure. I would recommend it to anyone interested in commercial real estate brokerage

    Cons

    Hard to move up, pay isn't great, technology is dated, territory system limits associates. Only represent landlords, so no tenant representation

    Advice to Management

    Allow associates to move up in the ranks more easily

    if you're going to have an internship program, pay the interns and make a concerted effort to teach more

    Pros

    Great corporate culture, the associates are easily approachable

    The management seem to be self-interest driven. They made various decisions that benefit themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Employee compensation needs to be more distributed.

    the brooklyn office is beautiful, the people are really great to work with. Everyone is really friendly.. I worked here through high school as an intern and I learned a lot about Excel and pivot tables, which was really useful later on in college

    Pros

    In the real estate industry, Massey Knakal Realty Services is pretty well known. I interned there and it was useful interms of learnign about certain property types and what to look for in valuation of different properties. I la got to learn how to use different computer progreams pretty well like Excel which you can use everywhwere else and powerpoit for makeing presentations.

    Cons

    I have noticed that the brokers that are successful or even somewhat successful (if they work in bad terrtoires) need to work thier butts off. I'm talking late nights everydays and weekends. This is pretty uch year round.

    Advice to Management

    Teach the juniors.
