    Pros

    The Connor Group is an outstanding company to work for. The company promotes from within, allowing anyone to move up and eventually even have part ownership! The job is very rewarding and goal focused. The best part is if you work hard, you are going to get rewarded for it. The company goes above and beyond to make sure you are recognized for what you have accomplished. They believe that people count and know how valuable the employees are to the organization.

    Cons

    This is not a 9 to 5... Hours can be long. At the same time though, it is sales...so that should be expected!

    The Connor Group is not a good fit for individuals who aren't willing to put forth the effort to succeed which isn't a con in my opinion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue believing that your people make your business a success.

    A successful culture breeds successful associates. This company is no exception. The Connor Group is constantly growing from within thanks to great leadership. No only does this motivate associates, but it's nice to work for a company that shows appreciation for hard work.

    Pros

    Everyone is very friendly, approachable, and helpful.
    The compensation is fair and individual achievement and effort do not go unnoticed by upper management.
    You take on a lot of responsibility, so you know that you make a significant impact.

    Cons

    You do work long hours, because there is always something that needs to be done yesterday.
    It was a long (2 month) hiring process, sometimes going weeks without hearing back, so that was a tad irritating/discouraging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing, because it's clearly working.

    Great interview process in the beginning

    You work minimum 6 days a week now that they're open Sundays. Too many issues with paychecks not being received, training program isn't worked the way they tell you it will, do ANYTHING to make money and keep occupancy, they fluff numbers for the big boss Larry.

    It would be nice to be able to go on the website and see the status of properties, whether they have sold or are under contract and the same for new acquisitions.
