    Pros

    I worked there as an intern. I thought it was a good experience. I got to learn a lot about the industry and I liked the team that I worked with .

    Cons

    I do not think there were many cons. It was an exciting time to be working there because it was very busy. Maybe a little more diversity in the projects. I tended to focus on one sector more than the other.

    I worked at Sperry Van Ness full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Their nationwide network allows you to assist your customers no matter where their properties are located; then you do a search for SVN brokers in that state and you know somebody you can trust to assist you and your client.

    Cons

    Could not belong to the NAR or FAR, since the Managing Broker was not member.

    Pros

    There is a tremendous amount of autonomy.

    Cons

    You make what you produce (which some people will prefer).

    Advice to Management

    Keep up what you are doing.
