    Pros

    Hours, office location, non-stressful environment, good foot in door to CRE industry, and overall friendly people

    Cons

    Little to no feedback taken by HR in regards to employees outside high ranking, impossible to get promoted unless you stay at the company for decades

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote an environment which fosters career growth, pay your analysts more

    I have been working at Reis

    Pros

    The environment can be friendly or stiff depending on your department. It's a great place to start a career, as Reis is know for giving chances. which is why most employees range from early 20's to early 30's. If you are looking for stability 9-5 Mon-Fri this is your place. The work life balance is great.

    Cons

    It is hard to be promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None really I am content with them. Brian and Mike are very effective and diligent managers they know how to communicate with employees to reach and maintain goals. Their communication is great.

    Pros

    There are a lot of fun people in the office and the benefits are amazing.

    Cons

    A lot of lies about the product in order to compete with companies like CoStar, Axio etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Introduce yourself to the people on the bottom rung. They MAKE this company by doing surveys.

    I worked at Reis

    Pros

    It was a steady paycheck.

    Cons

    Soul-sucking environment; depressing 'culture'; constant monitoring of your calls; every day was a numbers game. Even when you succeeded, they would make up an excuse to keep the carrot on the stick just out of reach. Zero room for advancement and gave what should be criminally low pay and terrible benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I can't believe you're still relying on phone surveys to gather data. It's the 21st century, there's something called the internet.

    Fine place to work until they change your job description and you're doing phone surveys with apartment owners.

    I have been working at Reis full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice people. Great benefits. Reasonable hours.

    Cons

    Some job titles and descriptions can be misleading. I was told I would strictly be doing internet research, and then 4 months in they had me calling apartment buildings doing phone surveys. Found a new job shortly after because I wasn't too keen on pestering apartment owners who had no desire to talk to me.

    I have been working at Reis full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good starting point. If you have absolutely no office experience they will hire you.
    There are a lot of people who tend to be antisocial but there are few people who are outwardly mean or rude.
    Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    They are not completely honest about the job during the initial interview process. Reis leads applicants to believe that they will be calling people familiar with Reis and the product. The reality is that most people you call will yell at you and say something like "who is Reis? why are you calling me?"

    Not many people stay at Reis for a long period of time, and the company makes it clear that they are not concerned about the high turnover.

    Pros

    Midtown and While Plains office.

    Cons

    Product is not evolving. Management has become too rigid and the company is losing a significant market share to our competitors.

    There have been 'updates and releases' made recently that do not add value to the product!

    All of the VPs are too comfortable in their roles and not willing to make significant and needed changes in the organization.

    QA also needs revamping we are not doing a good enough job of fact checking our information before it is published

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase market coverage our competitor is 10x our size.
    Revamp HR and Marketing departments.
