    Pros

    Really great company that makes a genuine effort to value it's employees. Easy to make transfers nationally, and management will support you if you want to make a change within the company.

    Cons

    There is no real "career path" or annual goals evaluation if you are an "admin".

    Advice to Management

    I would like to see more effort made to retain talent that is initially hired as admin.

    Pros

    This company has great benefits

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for non- real estate professionals. Management in the regional area lack vision for growth.

    Pros

    Work from home twice a week. Lax attire.

    Cons

    Below average salaries compared to market, expensive health insurance

    Advice to Management

    Focus on retention as over 20% of staff left the company, hire the right managers who want to be leaders and care about the morale of their team.

    Pay attention to what's going on with employees at the non-corporate level.

    Pros

    Everyone is really nice and the office environments is incredibly supportive and welcoming. There are a lot of perks like Summer Fridays and relaxed vacation and sick days. Most teams are very easy to work with. And the HR dept is 5 star

    Cons

    Too easy, and too slow. There are many days and hours where I have so little to do. And if you have a bad desk you're screwed. You have no say where you sit.

    Advice to Management

    If there are empty desks that people can use, just give them to the people who have worked here and plan to stay. Stop giving visitors nice desks its not fair.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Good programs to support the community. I liked being able to work from home a couple days a week.

    Cons

    It takes a long time to get promoted. I didn't have a good manager which made things stressful. He'd always need to go to his supervisor if he wasn't sure on how to make a decision. Even the simple issues. I don't think upper management has any clue what's going on with the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Train your managers so they know how to manage staff.
