    Pros

    The company is conducive to personal growth, and fosters the value of team work. Most managers I worked with have been pleasant and understand your personal goals along with the company's. Generally speaking most employees here are very thoughtful and nice.

    Work hours are very flexible, the company is very good about understanding personal needs and allowing working from home.

    Cons

    Salary compensation is lower compared to other tech companies in the area. An awful performer not only fabricated drama from within the team all the way to HR, they also somehow was given a job in a different team and ended up staying at the company.

    Vacation benefits are also sub-par. Sick days and vacation days are separate, there is absolutely no reward for keeping yourself healthy, your sick days will just evaporate at some point.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop looking at your competition and copying everything they do. Try to get ahead by innovating, otherwise you will always be playing catch-up.

    Pros

    Working at Realtor.com is both a challenging and rewarding experience, it is an Inside Sales position and requires you pick up the phone and prospect for new business. If you are not comfortable with prospecting daily then it may not be the right fit for you, but if you are not afraid of picking up the phone and reaching new clients then you can make a really good living.
    In my first month on the sales floor I reached 200% of my sales quota and was rewarded with a fat commissions check. There is money to be made here and I can see that I will exceed $120,000 in income here in my first year. The company has great benefits and the environment is strictly business in that you are here to sell products and not to socialize. If you are interested in making a great living and don’t have a problem working hard to get there, then I would recommend that you give it a try and see how much money there is to be made here. The company was just acquired by NewsCorp in November 2014 and is in an aggressive growth mode over the next couple of years. Anyone in sales knows what opportunities come with that; don’t miss out on the chance to make some really good money during that growth.

    Cons

    As with any employer there are situations where you may not be happy with the decisions that are made, but it is part of being an employee at any company.

    I worked at Move

    Pros

    Pay is excellent, plus monthly bonuses and stock options. Great health insurance, dental, and vision.

    Cons

    Very stressful environment, inconsistency when it comes to enforcing polices. Depending on who you are, the policies don't apply. Upper management creates a depressing, stressful, and frustrating work environment in the Scottsdale office. A sign that this is true is that half the management team have left within the last 3 months. There is a lot of gossiping, sabotaging people in order to move ahead, and no respect for upper management behind their backs. To their faces, there is a lot of insincere flattery going on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your managers with respect and let them talk! Don't interrupt and be the first one to talk when we are trying to speak our minds. Don't undermine managers by tearing up corrective action warnings that have already been delivered to employees. Don't choose to randomly launch an investigation on somebody when you choose not to do this on someone else where there is actual proof to launch an investigation. Buying breakfast burritos on Fridays are not enough to boost morale.

    Pros

    Great pay, benefits, and schedule

    Cons

    Poor Senior Leadership Encouraging Employee Sabotage, Inconsistent Treatment of Employees in Discipline and Promotion Matters, Micromanagement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop disrespecting your managers and invest time in properly training the people you hire. Empower them to do their job rather than openly disrespecting them in front of their peers because of insecurity and inconsistency.

    There is an enormous amount of gossiping that senior management runs with as truth if it is received from someone that is favored among staff. Investigations are opened without good cause as a result of gossip. If you intend to approach work situations ethically and question things that don't seem fair, then you are going against the grain and will be targeted to be "managed out".

    If a manager is in a meeting for longer than ten minutes with a report, senior management starts pacing in front of the door every few minutes. Once the meeting is over, you are called in a meeting and aggressively questioned about what you were talking about.

    Managers are not trusted to do their job which is extremely frustrating and aren't encouraged to make decisions unless favored by senior management. STAY AWAY from this place if you want a professional career and your sanity.

    Pros

    Great benefit plan
    Great location (if you live in the valley)
    After mergers, great market positioning
    That is pretty much it.

    Cons

    Leaders have no leadership ability (or credible leadership training)
    Lot of meetings with no results
    Personality driving organization
    LOTS of turnover
    Sales is a cattle call only the strong, arrogant, and shady survive (see the movie Glenngarry, Glenn Ross to see what the environment like)
    Owned by Rupert Murdoch (aka Fox News) so if you are a minority good luck
    There is much more I just have run out of time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Attend USC Marshal School of Business now! Then apply what you've learned.
