    Pros

    Flexible schedule, strong chance at large commission. I've been able to make everyone of my friends weddings, etc, and the fee on a large deal is big money.

    Cons

    No base salary, overcrowded industry. It's an incredibly competitive market with little loyalty and no tools other than a phone and a desk.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better training to young brokers and pair them with a senior broker so that their initial deal involvement is high. Also, create a culture where everyone is motivated towards the same goals.


  2. Great company, friendly casual work environment with a willingness to teach.

    Pros

    Overtime, that's it, nothing more came out of that office.

    Cons

    Will not order supplies needed. Will not work on IT issues. Toxic, chaotic environment.

    Advice to Management

    think about those who actually work for the brokers as opposed to coming in to just speak to the brokers. I understand they are the force of your revenue, but care a little about those who work their bottoms off to assist them.

    Pros

    Growing company for real estate brokerage, pays fairly well.

    Cons

    Since company went public most employees are treated like a number instead of a person, very cold atmosphere to work in.

    Advice to Management

    Learn that the employees are your greatest asset and reward them when profits are high, don't publish how well you did when others in the company are struggling if you don't share the wealth.
