    I have been working at Watson Realty Corp full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Full Time Benefits such as health, vacation, and sick days.

    Cons

    Not a lot of opportunities to grow in the business. Corporate micro-manages everything you do. Responsibilities that are not your job are dumped on you. A lot of legalities. Be careful what you say.

    Advice to Management

    Let your employees do their job their way. You don't have to be their every step of the way. You trained them to do their job. Now let them do their job.

    Pros

    As a Community Developer, the concern of residents well being from home and shelter provisions, Job and Financial income based dependencies, support Professional trades and assistances oprovided for continue education to Residents

    Cons

    As to support of manufacturing of goods in-house within County, there are some industrial relational in performances despite the dependencies in some export products that we can not bypass are areas of which new emphasis are being placed as to be more localized industrial wise.

    Advice to Management

    Effective leadership have been via the benefits of group performances; in Real Estate many professions come to state of need of which buying and selling as to trading for best equity often are desiding factors of property transferes and exchanges, Durable materials that will have long term effective are always questions of best to use for foundation of area access of population with constant averaged group family. I am sure the grouped owner operator guarantorsip thus keep the business in its momentum.
