    Pros

    you have a job, you get benefits and you get to travel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be real, care more, treat your employees like you would a friend or family member.

    I have been working at Move full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Overall processes have been improving recently. Tech group is finally embracing modern web principles and shedding old legacy decisions. Recent Newscorp acquisition seems to have put some much needed pressure on the company to produce better products, using better technology, and building great consumer experiences. Very family friendly, in my group at least. Location in Downtown SJ is great.

    Cons

    Stuck too long in old ways, legacy tech decisions. Finally showing signs of fixing this though.
    Perks are not competitive. Snacks are lame and sparse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start following through on concepts, brainstorms and hackathons! There is lots of talent inside the teams thats just waiting to be utilized.

    Pros

    Real opportunity to make serious money. Solid reputation in the real estate industry so prospecting isn't as rough as it is in other companies. Get a book of business after training so renewal sales are available. Office location is convenient.

    Cons

    This job isn't for everyone based on what we are asked to do in dials, 100+ every day. If you can do this and follow the sales process you will make money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it going!!

    I worked at Move

    Pros

    Clean environment, professional mature atmosphere, Consent training, great benefits, okay base but can't live off it. Commission uncapped, "So they say you can make over 150k year. Ask anyone on the follow if their actually doing it now? or better yet, ask how long they been with the company?

    Cons

    Call center atmosphere, Cube and headset life, Very fast paced and stressful environment, constant Micro management daily, Very detail oriented with multiple CRM and platform applications open on your desktop - you must juggle through all of these while still focused on the closing of the sale. Management seems to favor those making the most sales and humiliates those not putting numbers on the board. They make them attend training classes everyday if they don't hit their numbers, and sometimes pick on them making them read if front of the entire class. Your metrics are not reasonable at times. It changes if the entire sales floor does not meet their quota. Dials can go up to 150. Be ready for consumer base selling since most of your clients are consumer small business hybrids. They are broke and very emotional when it comes to marketing their business. You'll get an email from time to time asking to work another hour or stay till 7pm. They do the same asking to work the weekends. It's very hard if you have a life outside of work or maintain a family. This is not the job for you! Those that do work the extra hours or come in on Saturdays to put more numbers on the board will be ahead of the pack so there's a lot of competition. I felt like I was always walking on eggshells with this company, I seriously couldn’t see myself working there longer than 6 months. The turnover rate is unbelievable. Stories within the company explain there’s only 2 out of 50 hires that stayed since last year. I started with about 15 in my training class and it was reduced to 8 excluding me resigning recently. The day you don’t make a sell is the day they start probing you! I had to get out of this company because it was starting to take a big toll on my health.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice I'm glad I quit.

    Pros

    Great pay, amazing benefits, nice coworkers, great sales environment, leadership, best technology

    Cons

    I wouldnt consider it a "CON" for working with MOVE, but you have to come to work each day ready to sell. EVERYDAY. High expectations of each AE, but they provide the training and support needed to hit our goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thanks for replacing the old leadership team with the new...Please continue to focus on the growth of each AE.

    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.

    I worked at Move

    Pros

    The pay is good. Good benefits. Company is stable. Probably one of the best paying jobs out there for that type of role.

    Cons

    Training is flat out terrible. I've never felt so unprepared going into a job in my life.
    The software is quite difficult. I feel very obligated to "flag" for help because the flags don't even enjoy their job enough to come around to help you. When they do come, they make you feel stupid, or insulted.
    It felt like the last few days on my job, a person was assigned to sit next to me for the sole purpose or seeing the mistakes I made so they can let me go. 3 days Prior to that I was told I was doing a "good job" by the end of the week, I was written up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you feel you have to lay someone off just do it. Don't waste peoples time.
