    Pros

    Awesome tools & systems. Staff nice.

    Cons

    Too much work. Compensation not nearly enough for the demanding workload. Expected to work outside normal business hours.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation to non management employees needs to be increased. Look at hiring people who are qualified for the positions needed and don't create positions based on what people are "good" at.

    I have been working at Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It’s a job but not much more.

    Cons

    No vacation accrual until you begin month 3. They don’t tell you that. The way they track mileage is petty. They keep restructuring review and raise times. Employees have gone 2 years without a raise. I’m not sure how it gets ethical company designation. It’s far from ethical. Also understaffed.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees, compensate them fairly, give them paid time off that is in line with their hard work.
