    I wish there were more hours in the day - don't we all? If I have to pick something, it's maybe keeping up with pace but never a dull moment!

    Pros

    Strong base and commission structure. Great team atmosphere as long as there is strong manager. The midwest management culture was changing drastically for the better before I left.

    Cons

    Upper management is very metric driven which is mentally draining for the boots on the ground sales rep.

    Pros

    The pay is beyond what you’ll be doing day to day. You’re over compensated because the work is mindless and borderline debilitating. However, your coworkers are awesome, the benefits are amazing, and you will learn about CRE. It’s an above average two year plan to enter the corporate world. If you want to be a lifer, there will always be opportunities to “advance”. Hit your metrics and take advantage of learning advanced excel while figuring out who you are. +benefits are the best you’ll find. Health, espp, vitality, it’s great +pto is plentiful +you don’t take work home with you +most of your coworkers are awesome +the work isn’t stressful, just the childish “management”, aka warehouse supervisor.

    Cons

    Upper management doesn’t exist. It’s AF’s world. The company has monumental potential, but research is an army to them. They have intentionally manipulated their employees to believing the quality of their work matters, when it’s a number game. There is a reason nobody outside of the execs, dev, or sales is over the age of 28. Your manager will be just as cool as you, but they get yelled at and have been there a while. You’ll reach out to professional brokers that will do their best to not be a jerk to you, even though we are bothering them for a metric. And MD if you’re reading this, metrics are important, everyone knows that. Measuring people off of a handful of falsely weighted values when the work isn’t even close to being distributed equally, is embarrassing, and promoted manipulation while missing the true contributors. Every proven company gets their ceo to leave after 30 years, and we all know why. AF clearly needs to be involved, but doesn’t even trust his own system that got him here. His sales talk track for LoopNet or ten x is the most 1998 cringeworthy thing I’ve ever heard. It’s degrading to the profession sales people that turn mud into Aquafina. -your work isn’t respected by the industry -the only voice that matters is AF. -moving up to management is easiest achieved by thinking less and conforming more. -other companies in the industry actively avoid working with csgp, hence core logic deal.
