      I worked at Coldwell Banker Bain full-time for more than 8 years

      Pros

      The real estate agents are hard working people and are not a reflection of the corporate office.

      Cons

      Executive leadership has gone off the deep end. The culture has been overrun by new "leadership" that has been given too much trust and power by the owner. The lack of discernment about what's happening is frightening. The owner is panicking because of Compass and is now trusting the wrong people. It's not a good place to work anymore.

      Advice to Management

      Sell the company to new ownership so it can be restored before it's too late.

      I have been working at Coldwell Banker Bain full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      The company provides many resources to their brokers, such as free classes and some very well designed marketing materials that are made readily available.

      Cons

      There is a lot of separation between the Marketing team at the corporate level and the individual branches.

      Advice to Management

      Create a graphic design team that allocates a designer to each Coldwell Banker Bain branch and create a connection between the corporate marketing team and the release of their marketing materials.

      Advice to Management

      Coldwell Banker Bain has effective managers and staff. This contributes to effective and happy agents! My advice is to keep up the good work!

      I worked at Coldwell Banker Bain full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      You feel like you are needed.

      Cons

      You feel needed until it turns into, you feel like a slave. Unhealthy stressful environment. Real estate is a stressful business where brokers are either happy, depressed or manic. You are under the corporate microscope. You may get let go for no reason at all. Staff is used and abused. The old and tired systems are already in place and your input isn't ever really heard. Everyone on the staff takes their jobs too seriously...
