    Pros

    Personal growth, learning to take initiative, learn ropes of the business for seasoned professional, flexible hours/schedule, can work from home

    Cons

    So much to learn regarding addendums, purchase/listing agreements, different forms required for different types of housing. All in all, its an overwhelming amount to learn for the first few months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more friendly to people within the office,

    Pros

    The best reason to work here is independence and unlimited income. The individual company websites like buyandsellchicago.com are the best in the industry. Also training and networking is far superior to any other brand I have worked for. A true joy to be associated with this brand.

    Cons

    No cons about this company, simply the best in the business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work keeping the brand in front of the pack

    Pros

    Nice building with faux gold fixtures on the 12th floor. Plenty of attractive young people and a foosball table.

    Cons

    Lack of accountability in all leadership positions. In short... if you are a friend of Dave's -you have a job for life. If not, you are a piece of meat in a seat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Begin recruiting true professionals into Management and Leadership.

    I worked at RE/MAX full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed my experiences at RE/MAX. In our office, they worked very hard to ensure that you were up to date with all of the company services. We had a knowledgeable franchise manager and owner who helped me get through some difficult situations and maximize my business opportunities and contacts. You really were your own boss and the commission splits were very favorable once you hit your annual targets.

    Cons

    You are at work all of the time. Once you hit a certain level, your only incentive is to start a competing branch or leave and go on your own. Better administrative support would have been helpful at times, especially if you wanted to take some time off. The lead system never seemed to work out for me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As much help as possible when getting started would be appreciated. I do question the value provided at times for the national-type services as many did not apply to local transactions and yet we were required to pay a variety of dues and fees.
