    I have been working at Childress Klein full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They hire the best, and allow them the freedom, flexibility and resources to do their job. (Many companies like to say they do this, but this one actually does.) Employees who are self- motivated, and take the initiative to go the extra mile are rewarded - praise is often, and makes you feel incredibly valued and appreciated. They do promote within when possible - so keep that in mind as you look at your long term career goals. If this is your first job out of college, you have lucked out and hit the jackpot.

    Cons

    Work is often in silos, offer more employee gatherings so different divisions can interact with each other.

    I worked at Childress Klein full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Nice office and some employees are friendly.

    Cons

    If you are not one of the “favored” employees you will feel like an outcast. There is a definite divide between the employees, you are in the “ in crowd” or you are not. Feels like high school all over again.

    Pros

    Great private company that values employees and their long term service. Competitive compensation plans, very good benefits and recognized as an Industry leader in the commercial real estate market. There goal is to support their employees so that they can grow their careers at one company. Something that is rare in today's market. If you get an interview for this job, ask the company about the average tenure of their employees. Very few private real estate companies have employees with long term tenure. It speaks volume about the culture and leadership of this company.

    Cons

    The companies business is commercial real estate and will be subject to the market's expansion and contraction. They have had very few layoffs during the down cycles but this is what happens in the real estate market. If you have great skills and can show value for your work then you will not have anything to worry about.
