    Pros

    I like the corporate atmosphere without being harsh. Professional and ethical standards guide the business. Individual offices have strong leadership. Agents are exposed to new ideas and practices in the business on a global level. Change of leadership has been very positive in my current office.

    Cons

    Poor communication between agents within the office. Subtle attitudes of discrimination , specially, from the Asian agents who prefer to work with their own.

    Pros

    They pay for a lot of stuff you would normally pay out of pocket for like business cards and signs. No desk fees.

    Cons

    None really. You are left on your own most of the time. Not much communication between Broker and individual Realtor. I guess that would be about the only Con.

    It's a job... I guess. (Concierge)

    Mar 2, 2017 - Concierge in Asheville, NC

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    + Benefits when you first start. + 12+ Days of PTO. + Pick your schedule. + Paid Training. + Co-workers seem alright.

    Cons

    - They don't tell you what you'll be doing, till you start training. You don't really get a choice either. Don't want to be doing concierge? Too bad. - Mandatory over time (Extra money is nice for some though) - They say you'll be training for 3 weeks, but its really only 2 weeks. You sit in a class watching power points and using 'offline' based programs (so most of the features don't even work) to learn how to do your job. After the 2 weeks, they throw you onto the floor for 'nesting'. They say a supervisor is around to help, but other people need help too. Not ready to take live calls? Too bad. - Very stressful. You'd think a job based on 'Google searching' would be easy, but it's surprising pretty stressful, when you have someone yelling at you trying to find the nearest Starbucks in some big city you've never been to. - Low pay for what you'll actually be doing. As others have said, they expect gold but give you little help. - Their programs are slow and crash a lot. They use virtual computers, yet expect you to give someone turn by turn directions on google maps... Takes a little bit to even load google maps at times. - Communication is lacking severely. They said 3 weeks of training (its really 2) during the day. Normal hours of 8:00-4:30. After 2 weeks, you change hours with only a few days notice to 1:00-9:30 PM, then your schedule you picked. We weren't even told about 'nesting' (going live after 2 weeks) till our soon to be supervisor asked if we knew about it, then looked shocked when we said no. Overall? I'd avoid this place.

    Pros

    None to mention at all

    Cons

    A company that forces overtime near every holiday on all employees and threatens to fire you if you can't make it. They literally give you less than 24 hours notice for mandatory overtime. There are no opportunities for advancement in this compang whatsoever, they will give you a dog and pony show about how great the benefits are and then reality will kick in. Underpaid. Work every holiday. No employee hand book or rules. Forced politics. Communication from the client to the call center is non existing. This is the worst place I've ever worked In my entire life
