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

    Pros

    1. Family-Like atmosphere
    2. Great Co-Workers
    3. Training Opportunities
    4. Training classes
    5. The BRAND!
    So many things makes this company unique. They continue to sponsor Children's Miracle Network and have yearly fundraisers.

    Cons

    The only thing I could think of is being a new agent and trying to remember all the new faces and information that seems to be thrown at you all at once. Can be very overwhelming at times... But in the end, is very worth it.

    Former Employee - Administrative in Rochester, NY

    I worked at RE/MAX full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of overtime hours available every week. What matters is not what you’ve accomplished in a day, but how many hours you were seen “working.” Management is pretty good about allowing time off for personal reasons.

    Cons

    Unproductive, dysfunctional environment. (Rated X language & bully behaviors frequently used, much personal drama interferes with work, temper-tantrums are normal.) Many staff and management are unprofessional in their conduct with fellow coworkers, and there was no repercussions for inappropriate language & actions. Takes pride in “wall of shame” atmosphere. Managers are CCd on every email - lots of "covering your back" behaviors. Employees are not empowered enough to make decisions within their scope of authority. Employees are not shown that they are valued. Very poor compensation & benefits, work/life balance. There is little opportunity to advance. No incentives to keep motivated and on task. Reward system? What reward system? Office staff is not treated with much respect. High staff burnout & turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Culture does not align with written company values. Actions speak louder than words.

    Pros

    Never had to work weekends, kept busy in a professional environment.

    Very unorganized, had to share a computer (which made my job next to impossible to do).
