    I have been working at BoomTown (South Carolina) full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Where to begin? I guess straight to the top. Grier (CEO- get this. he actually works in the office every day, right along with us) and other valuable leaders have worked hard to make BoomTown a powerful, successful, and great company to be a part of whether you are a client, or employee. The thing that I appreciate the most about this company is the Core Values are not just decorations on the wall, but life skills that...

    Cons

    I don't have cons. If I have an issue, or concern I bring it to my leaders and they are quick to address it or offer insight into why it is that way. One thing I will share, which is not a con but a preference, in relation to work life balance. I am used to 4 on and 3 off from my previous job. That is one thing that I miss and had to get used to not having, but overall in terms of PTO and weekends off BoomTown provides...

    Advice to Management

    I have been working at BoomTown (South Carolina) full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Amazing Culture - super fun environment, not just the gimmicks (dog culture, beer on tap, basketball court). The culture actually matters here. People work hard but have fun. Go For It Attitude - In my 3 years here, I've never felt like there was a ceiling on what I could try to bring to the organization. They have always been encouraging of new ides, different thoughts. They aren't just tolerant of differences in...

    Cons

    Growing pains of a company going from a small-medium size to a medium-large size have been challenging here. With the growing of the organization, decisions and changes are starting to take a while to enact/put in place. Natural given we are scaling, but make things challenging in a industry that moves so quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership development needs to improve. Better vetting of prospective hires/managers/leaders.

    I worked at BoomTown (South Carolina) for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work environment, people, benefits and perks

    Cons

    Work is boring and monotonous - lack of product team vision. BoomTown used to the big dog in Real Estate CRMs but they have been quickly surpassed. Not much room for growth as an employee either - lots of lateral moving.

    I have been working at BoomTown (South Carolina) for less than a year

    Pros

    This is the highest-quality office I have ever worked at with friendly, smart people (and their dogs), amenities (food/bev, games, patio, location, guest speakers, showers), and a beautiful building (brand new). I also appreciate the free-range I have with what projects I work on. I am learning a ton.

    Cons

    As an intern I don't qualify for some employee perks (typical for internships). I only get to be here for 3 months :(

    I worked at BoomTown (South Carolina) part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    A basketball court, lounging couches with blankets, and a bar area (?) you might get to play on / hang out for 10 minutes if you meet the crucial time deadlines that got unrealistic due to it being a startup.

    Cons

    As soon as you walk in you are over-powered by "The Google of Charleston" atmosphere so many millenials crave in new companies. However, it has a poor focus for being a real estate service company and only care about their bottom line when it comes to budgeting time so it led to high turnover rates and no sense of real belonging. Also, good luck getting a promotion without some kind of experience unless you're a favorite!...

    Advice to Management

    More advancement opportunities Sometimes keeping it simple is best, don't over-do it trying to emulate someone like Google Focus on what makes you successful as a company

    Pros

    Great product, great culture, and great people. Everyone here lives by our core values and strive to make real estate agents successful through our products, services, and support. I look forward to going to work everyday. We have a work hard, play hard mentality and being in our 10th year, we've found a nice balance. Employees feel appreciated and taken care of....from our new office, to our employee appreciate events.

    Cons

    Not really any con's. I've been here 3 years and have experienced a lot of growth, both within the market and within the company and both have been handled well.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
