What Employees Say
I have been working at Redfin for more than 3 years
Everyone is accountable and we get reviewed by each client. Not doing a good job you get let go and most real estate companies don't do that. Plenty of hours to work on weekends, weekdays, weeknights... & holidays.
When real estate season slows down, not as much work to be had.
Advice to Management
Nothing negative. We have managers who over see Redfin Associate Agents and recognize people individually when getting great reviews from clients and doing an outstanding job. Only improvement is to... hire more people from the associate agent role positions for lead agent roles especially when associate agent is doing a great job in the field and getting excellent reviews. Very hard to get into other positions when being an associate agent when it should help by hiring more internally. I've been with company for 4 years and have been turned down several times for other positions by management.
I have been working at BBS, Inc. full-time for less than a year
I have been working at BBS for almost 8 months now and still enjoy coming into the office everyday. BBS has a tremendous amount of room for advancement and is a growing sales and marketing firm. I... have personally had 2 promotions within the past 8 months and have seen multiple promotions also- The hiring managers Vince and Tray, have a 'no seniority' policy which means, if you are out performing others, you get the next promotion. Other perks - Travel, Competitive base salary, leads are given (No cold calling) High commissions, full health benefits and 50% of gas is paid The managers encourage any type of feedback and encourage all employees to write reviews on Glassdoor.
Managers hold high standards. This isn't a complete con but if your numbers start to drop, they will sit you down and have a critical conversation on how to improve. If you don't hit BBS standards,... they let people go within 3 weeks. (Not a position for lazy)
Advice to Management
Thank you for running such a fun and positive work environment. I love the direction the company is headed and am excited to see where I am within my first yr of employment. The bathrooms could... use some work :)
