    I have been working at CoStar Group full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Salary is decent and benefits are great

    Cons

    This is a call center job, plain and simple. There is no room for creativity, you will need to call the same portfolio of companies every month (approx 300 contacts) and keep them on the phone for at least 90 seconds for the call to count, this is 90% of the job. It is not a hard job, it can however be stressful if you let it.

    I worked at CoStar Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits, training, and have earned the number one position that they hold on all fronts by investing in research, technology, and advertising

    Cons

    Recently revamped commission plan which negatively impacts salary by about 25%. This is definitely going to disrupt sales to some degree.

    Pros

    Great benefits and comfortable office setting. The training to do the job was detailed and prepared you for the job and there is growth potential.

    Cons

    The metrics were continuously changing and this made it hard to succeed when the requirements for success were continuously moved around.

    I have been working at CoStar Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits; paid lunch and gym access.

    Cons

    Metrics are always changing and generally unattainable without cheating; chained to your desk; not much time off; work is extremely repetitive and monotonous- don't expect to think much; they only do what's best for business, not the employee.

    I worked at CoStar Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The company is constantly growing and evolving. The vision of the company's CEO is inspiring and allows for change to happen quickly. Great benefits, great talent, and lots of opportunities for hard-working and ambitious people.

    Cons

    The workplace is generally inflexible with office hours and working from home (not great if you're a parent). Change happens fast, so planning ahead for anything can be difficult. Employees at times feel undervalued.

    Advice to Management

    Reward employees with raises and promotions. Try to be flexible with hours, especially for employees with kids.

    Pros

    Great Benefits. Excellent funding to products. #1 Brand - basically no competition. Change culture.

    Cons

    Aggressive growth model isn't for everyone. Strategies shift often without proper planning.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to your employees on the front line. Although growth is fundamental to success, happy employees = faster growth.
