    Intern Review

    Intern (Former Employee)

    ProsJob was flexible and fun and senior management were easily accessible if needed. Also, work environment was casual and people seemed to enjoy their work.

    ConsTypical office environment with standard hours. Overall, as an intern there were few downfalls compared to most jobs at that level.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep being friendly and cordial towards your employees. I felt comfortable interacting with management and overall was impressed with everything.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great way to break into real estate

    Associate (Current Employee)

    ProsVery entrepreneurial. You get out of it what you put in. Flexible schedule. You really learn a lot about the industry and you get to work with seasoned professionals.

    ConsNo salary. Takes a few years to get your feet wet.

    Great place for self sufficient producers

    Assistant Director (Former Employee)

    ProsFreedom to work on what you want, decent splits, annual/bi-annual company paid trips are fun and help build deep relationships, very strong brand and prestige in certain markets but very little cachet in others. Exposure to large and skyline shaping projects at a young age if you work for the right senior brokers. Ability to make several hundred thousand a year in your 20's if you are good, though you make very little when you start. The company is the best place for people who already know what they are doing and already have a book of business but simply desire keep more of the pie and not be interfered with as much as at larger shops like CBRE, JLL and Cushman.

    ConsVery little training and support, especially for rookies. Management is typically made up of the highest producers in the company (who also own the company) rather than professional managers trained to lead and inspire a collective unit. Young people are at the complete whim of the team that hires them as corporate has little participation or interest in the process. Commission structure with no base salary is 90% of the company and not for most people. High turnover due to the fact that is easy to hire someone on commission even if they don't work out.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreate a collective vision and make people feel a part of something larger than their own income. Provide support and training to junior brokers to improve client service and reduce turnover.

    Independent Company for Independent Individuals

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsHands-off approach makes doing one's job easier if they have the capabilities to work alone. Excellent aesthetic around he office makes coming into work a pleasure.

    ConsOffice coherence non-existent. Hard to feel like part of the greater whole. Incentive to do good work the company falls way short of incentive to work for one's self

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Ineffiecient

    Executive Assistant (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGreat bonuses at Christmas time from the brokers

    Consthe HR department is inefficient and will throw you under the bus. Brokers who make tons of money for the company can treat you any way they want to and no one ever steps in. So many girls cry in the bathroom at lunch time.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Associate Director

    Associate Director (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsIf you work for the right Director, your career could be very successful

    ConsGet in with the wrong Director, you will have a very limited career (in a field with high attrition).

    Advice to Senior ManagementBecause of the greed of the Directors, a lot of high quality people are lost. They say it takes three years to get up and running--but you'll never make it that long. Basically, everyone below a Director builds their pipeline only to be let go (after 6-months, 1-year, or 2-years them). After all the leg work you did, when the deal does close, the money goes straight to the Directors. Work here only if you want to make someone else rich!?

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
