    I worked at The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors full-time

    Pros

    Strong international organizations with great benefits and decent salary

    Cons

    Communication with UK home office can be difficult. Expectation created through the filter of the UK mindset which can sometimes conflict with regional practices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give regional offices more autonomy.

    Pros

    Exposure to high level professionals in the property profession, annual professional development course, and good benefits package.

    Cons

    The local office leadership is lacking in a way that is detrimental to the success of the organization. There's a lack of direction, death by meetings - which usually ends with no further action being taken, the Managing Director's ego is inflated and he has yet to deliver on annual membership acquisition goals, male-centric US office environment, blatant bias, and a lack of transparency. Management is secretive and shady. Outdated software and poor technical support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut the dead weight immediately upon realizing that they cannot deliver - as opposed to allowing the problem to fester for years! Set a positive company culture from the TOP down and stop expecting change to happen from the bottom up.
