    Pros

    great brand, great name recognition, good technology. Sales agents and brokers are generally good.

    I have been working at Corcoran Group (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of paid vacation time off, I get a lot of support from my manager and health benefits are pretty good. A LOT of people work in this company so its easy to network and get to know people.

    Cons

    Its really hard to get things done and moved forward because the company is so huge. Even little projects/proposals take months to get accomplished. They are stingy with resources and the company has poor internal communication.

    Advice to Management

    Pay young people better salaries!


  6. "Absolute worst company to work for"

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Corcoran Group full-time

    Pros

    - I no longer work there

    Cons

    - Everything. Staff are treated horribly and grossly underpaid. The extremely low salaries attract unqualified and inexperienced people. Management is non existent. On every level from not being available, to not handling things they are being paid to handle. Having high level issues fall to lowly Admins. The office is not run well at all. No one has any idea what is going on at any given time. You can ask three people the same question and get three different answers. Employees are referred to with job titles they actually do not have, and are not being paid for, in order to make the agents think this is a great company. It isn't.

    Advice to Management

    The company is drowning and you are all engrossed in discussing the colors of the life raft rather than aiding anyone to get on one. Great job.

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

    Pros

    Some of the agents were pretty nice. Other pros...can't think of any. Maybe the free food?

    Cons

    The management/administration here is absolutely horrific. Management is oppressive to great workers. The turnaround time is INSANE. Going through 20 receptionists in a year and half? That's not normal.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people like actual human beings.

    I have been working at Corcoran Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Reputable brand. Great recognition. Name opens doors. Corcoran in Manhattan is outstanding. Large group of people to look to for support.

    Cons

    Good ole boys club. Way behind the times. No longer leading the market. Upper management in the Hamptons more worried about politics than developing agents. Not the same company in the Hamptons as you would get in NYC.

    Advice to Management

    Be innovative in the Hamptons. Be supportive of all agents. Offer solutions rather than criticism.
