    I worked at Corcoran Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Extremely lenient workday hours and vacation policy.

    Cons

    No clear strategy for the future of the business, especially when it comes to marketing. Executives operate in a reactive state; flailing to respond to industry competitors and the CEO's demands. Innovation and excellence are not a priority. Culture is rampant with favoritism that borders on discrimination.

    Advice to Management

    Prioritize your employees professional and emotional well being and reward them based on performance, skills and contribution.

    I worked at Corcoran Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of training for agents. Access to the office if needed. No issues with others. You will need to be an incredible net-worker to bring in your own deals. This is a passion not a job.

    Cons

    Management is nice but unhelpful with outdated plans and tips to increase listings and revenue and commissions. Other companies are offering better support.

    Advice to Management

    Management and staff should take refresh courses and update themselves with the new tools and technology that is available.

    Pros

    The staff at Corcoran were great and they made it an enjoyable experience.

    Cons

    I don't want to say there is no chance of upward mobility but it is highly unlikely. Many of the senior members protect their spot and are unwilling to create space for advancement.

    The pay is not up to par with other companies in the same industry.

    Pros

    Great camaraderie with and support from fellow agents and management. My office offers a comfortable work environment that naturally leads to collaboration with other agents. It's a real community of smart, sophisticated businesspeople. The company has terrific brand presence that always opens doors. My business has grown year to year thanks to all of these factors.

    Cons

    We could use some technology upgrades, many of which are expected to be delivered in the coming weeks.

    The company could make it easier/more economical to hire an assistant or junior agent.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to cultivate the great agents you have as a way of attracting equally strong and qualified agents to join the team. Exercise more flexibility -- and generosity, with regard to adjusting splits and access to leads.
