    Toxic Culture & Absentee Management

    Mar 20, 2021 - Licensed Real Estate Agent in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    -Great agent support (marketing tools and tech support) -Plenty of office supplies

    Cons

    -Money driven instead of mission-driven -No HR department - there's no one to monitor behavior between agents. Compass agents are cutthroat, nasty, and outright rude to one another. -Disregard for fair housing - fair housing is treated more like a joke than a serious issue. I've heard a concerning amount of discriminatory and prejudiced comments from some of the "best" agents. -Toxic company culture - agents are viewed as competition instead of colleagues. Everyone talks poorly about the other teams/agents behind their backs. -Absent management that's only concerned with making money - management turns a blind eye to infractions committed by the successful agents. If you bring in the money, you're invincible - the "best" agents flout the mandatory mask policy in the office, make discriminatory comments during meetings, and treat the staff poorly. -Disregard for COVID safety - COVID is treated more like an inconvenience instead of a legitimate safety concern. When there was a COVID outbreak in my building, I never received an email from management about a potential exposure. I only found out from another agent.

    HORRIBLE AGENT RESOURCE FEE

    Apr 15, 2021 - Real Estate Agent in Fort Lauderdale, FL

    Pros

    I loved working with my team

    Cons

    Half way 2020, during the pandemic, compass Managment coldly decided to slap agents with a $1750 resource fee. Regardless many people lost their jobs and there was instability they decided to do this. Resource fee is basically all the programs and services that compass brokerage offers their agents..except that the amount is absolutely ridiculous! No one wants to talk about it because team leaders are encouraged to tell their agents to not complain. How did compass get away with this? I have no idea. This fee is charged in many other brokerages but either for a wayyyy lower fee or their free. Compass always makes so much money from the sweat of their agents, was this necessary? Many new agents wants to leave compass but their resources fees have been turned into credit, so they have to get it paid off before they can even leave or they have to pay it cash. Thank fully I left, to a brokerage that doesn’t take advantage. Do not get stuck in the Compass glitz and glamour, a good agent will thrive in any brokerage.
