    I have been working at Compass full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Having recently joined Compass, all I can say about the company, its mission, and the people in it is ..... "simply amazing". Compass is a unicorn. It is that rare company that combines passion, focus, execution, vision, and has a heart and a soul. It values its agents and employees, putting them at the center of what it does. It innovates relentlessly, looking to build solutions that matter. It services its agents with passion, ensuring their success. And, the company consistently looks to get better. It is fast moving, willing to take risks, and willing to learn. The company that does all of this will win. That company is Compass. Every market has its dominant player and winner. Compass will win because it leads with vision, passion, empathy, and has the resourcing, focus, and commitment to change the industry.

    Cons

    The only con is also a pro. The company is not satisfied with good. It wants great. Being great isn't easy, so if you prefer settling, this isn't your place.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing forward. Changing an industry is hard. But, we are well down the road.

    Pros

    Compass is a really fast-paced and welcoming company that has numerous and fantastic opportunities for people of all levels of experience and job history. Management, both locally and in New York City, are open to hearing honest feedback and take all recommendations to heart. In fact, many of our tools, platforms and company initiatives were directly recommended by our agents and staff, not forced from the top down.

    Cons

    I can't think of any.

    I have been working at Compass full-time

    Pros

    Recently I had a health condition discovered that catching me completely off-guard. At a time that I could have felt overwhelmed, I was left actually feeling mostly fortunate and grateful in light of the benefits available to me, and the support of my team. Other noteworthy qualities I've found:

    + Productive and positive community.

    + People are kind.

    + Most leadership comes across as gracious and encouraging.

    + Employees are able to challenge themselves and explore a career path.

    + Learnings and victories are shared.

    + Not a lot of distractions/easy to focus.

    Cons

    There can be some strain with the rapid growth, but issues tend to resolve.

    Advice to Management

    You're building something special - thanks for that! Let's keep it going.

    Pros

    From my first day the Compass team made me feel so welcome. I’m not the most computer savvy person and the agent ops patiently gided me through. The support team is always there for the agents. Overall, I’m so glad I moved to Compass.

    Cons

    Keep up the good work

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
