    Move Fast

    Aug 5, 2022 - Principal (Agent) in Moorestown, NJ

    CEO Approval

    Pros

    World class, all-in one platform that allows you to operate your entire business from one source with everything tied into your MLS. 15 minute tasks become 5 minute tasks (or less). Google fast and Apple easy. Has the highest standards for the industry and doesn't care how much you produce - if you're a jerk, don't waste your time applying. One company, not a fragmented collection of franchisees with different standards and no real network. COMPASS has invested in making it incredibly easy to connect with agents across country (even in markets where it does not exist yet). You have unrivaled support from leadership all the way down the line. That's not fluff, the people responsible for your growth are available to help you with your growth and hold you accountable. #1 Brokerage in the country based on 2021 Sales Volume, but not resting on their laurels. I'm constantly contacted by our engineers about new tools and programs that are designed to solve agent problems using Agent feedback. COMPASS is just getting started.

    Cons

    All of the above isn't cheap. Splits are not as favorable as the headlines would have you believe and if you're a one issue agent (and your issue is highest commission split possible) you're probably better off at one of the companies racing to the bottom. It's a growing company and by default change is constant. People will come and go, expect it. You will be shunned by your former company when you leave, the industry, as a whole, is scared of COMPASS. It won't affect your business but don't be surprised when it happens.

    Pros

    Working with the real estate agents at Compass and providing world class marketing support for their luxury listings is very fun, you get a broad range of experience, training, and opportunities for passion projects.

    Cons

    Stuck in the past with their anti-work from home mentality, turn a blind eye to the benefit to the employee as well as how the customer is also now working from home mainly and there is less need to be full time in office. Also, notorious for being stuck at the salary you get hired with, very poor promotion and review cycle structure. Currently removing benefits due to economy. Makes the work from home issue even more upsetting as this is a free and still impactful benefit they could offer to retain employees.
