    Pros

    Caring Company, supportive and collaborative culture for all agents

    Cons

    NOT SPECIFIC cons to BHHS - Cons re ALL real estate sales - agents have a steep learning curve, low income at the beginning of their career and tons of training to truly build their knowledge of the industry. All necessary to be a true professional in the business as well as grow your own business.

    I worked at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices full-time

    Pros

    Minimal Benefits, that's pretty much it. Health insurance was the only pro.

    Cons

    Micromanagement, company doesn't care about employees in the slightest, works more slowly than the government, abusive President and Regional Partner, If you don't drink the company Kool-Aid you're treated like a pariah and are forced out of the company. You have to give at least two weeks notice if you're taking a day off and you have to send a request for a sick day- such a ridiculous company. They won't give you passwords for your own computer and other programs.

    Advice to Management

    This is specifically for the Drysdale Properties portion - stop with the stupid once a month management meetings, this is information you can send in an email. Let your managers have reign over their own offices, stop treating people like crap for having innovative ideas that don't fit into your own antiquated way of doing things. Stop giving out hourly employees personal information. If I could give this company zero stars, I would. Absolute worst company I have ever worked for. I regret ever working here and there is no room to grow. All they care about is recruiting clueless agents to squeeze money out of them. Nothing they provide is something that can't be provided by MLS or that you can make yourself.
