What Employees Say
I have been working at Keller Williams full-time for more than 5 years
You are your own boss. You call the shots. If you put in the time you can be very successful. I love the environment in my office - the people are nice, the building is updated and feels fresh and... new. When you step into the building you feel the electric energy.
You are your own boss. If you do not put in the work, you can find yourself in a downward spiral. You are only paid when you make a sale.

Very clear from day 1 that people live the company's beliefs. Being bold but with empathy, working hard to do the right thing (even when it's hard) and the notion that there is a solution to every... problem clearly drive the business and are part of the dialogue every day. Optima is driven by a good rhythm of KPIs and professional development conversations while keeping it simple so work is a focus vs. measurement. It's what you'd expect from a hard-driving, results-oriented company in the loop but up on the Northshore so if you're done with the commute to the city, this culture fits the active worker.
The Glencoe office is a thing of beauty, but we're running out of space.
Advice to Management
Keep it going, keep a focus on beliefs and KPIs, and keep sharing the goals and initiatives of the business.
