    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.

    Former Employee - Assistant Operations Manager in New York, NY

    I worked at RE/MAX full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    It was a new branch of an international franchise so we were able to get brand recognition, guided training courses from the franchise, and helped the office get leads just from being in the network.

    Cons

    The main guy running the shop was very unethical and had no real knowledge of being a good leader. Definitely no benefits, even the espresso machine he bought for the office was for clients-only. No real training provided to the agents. No real plan/execution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go learn how to become an effective leader and maybe good talent would stay. Invest in training agents.
