    I have been working at RE/MAX as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great professional environment. I know they are all independently owned, but professionalism goes throughout all the offices. Leadership is usually consistent from company to company and overall philosophies don't waiver.

    Cons

    It has a reputation as being an expensive company to work for, but that is usually offset by higher production by the agents over time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There can always be greater emphasis on agent development. And corporate should promote from the agent ranks rather than going to outside sources when possible.

    I worked at RE/MAX full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    In the beginning, the work/life balance was great - there were several company-sponsored employee events with food and drinks during the workday. The benefits packages were amazing - huge 401(k) match, no cost health insurance, lots of paid time off.

    Cons

    As the company grew, new management came in and took over. All of the perks slowly went away and employee satisfaction was no longer important. It also became hugely apparent that people who didn't deserve promotions were getting them. Management didn't reward the hard workers, they rewarded the people who kissed the most butt and back-stabbed their co-workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay better attention to the actual work your employees are doing, not just who you like the best because they kiss your butt the most. Once you took away the perks and then still told the employees to be grateful, you caused a lot of unhappiness. Your employees work hard for you - show your appreciation more.

    Work/Life balance. Extraordinary employees across the board! Great pay, great benefits.

    Commute across Denver to get to work is not any fun but that has nothing to do with RE/MAX.

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    I have been working at RE/MAX full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy job, people are enjoyable to be around, recognizable brand. Great location in the middle of DTC, free covered parking. Freedom to work on most anything you like to work on.

    Cons

    Management clueless on how to run a business. Management living on the curtails of the brand. No one really doing any real work nothing to move the business forward. No understanding of project management, process or even how to manage people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house on all manager and director levels. Actually hire people who understand the business, manage people and get things done. Awesome ideas to move the business forward but no one that know how to do it. Focus on the brokers and agents not just selling franchises.

    Agree on companies goals and hold to them, regardless of upper management whims.

    Pros

    Family atmosphere, great benefits, culture of respect.

    Cons

    No career path unless you are a schmoozer. If you don't have VP in your title, your voice isn't heard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back the entrepreneurial spirit by allowing the ground troops to introduce/improve processes rather than it always being a top down decision. Officer retreats are important, but why isn't an equivalent amount of time being spent listening to the people doing the actual work?

    Focus on the products you are delivering to in addition to the great customer service we provide. Five years or more is far too long of a life cycle for our technology offerings to our internal customers.

    I have been working at RE/MAX full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Work from Home Office, ability to network . Great program for office conversions looking to grow their business after challenging real estate market. Tools and services are great!

    Cons

    Micro-management, Regional Directors have zero franchise sales backgrounds, lack of consistancy - Most Franchise owners do not see value in brand in some markets. To much turnover sets a tone of fear and doesnt create a positive working enviroment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Team work with regular communication of company goals, highlight ones hard work other than rotate sales people and placing unattainable results - Manage to peoples weakness and collectively come up with successful coaching, to much politics for real estate.
