Pros

breakfast every morning with granola, yogurt, fresh fruit, juice, milk, and snacks throughout the day. you're triwheeling with three monitors. Metro Stipend. Good 401K and match. Just acquired LoopNet so there's room to move to that part of the company. Great paid training process. Great young corporate culture. Nights at the Nationals Games for free with a food voucher and metro card. Segway and Bikes you can utilize during the work day to go to lunch or ride around town after work. You make your own breaks for the most part and you gotta start somewhere. This isn't the worst position and you learn a TON about CRE which should always be an important global market. You also get access to the product at work as long as you're an employee and you can get bonuses if you make referrals and they stay on for 6 months and you hit your metrics each quarter.

Cons

You have so many different people watching your every move. Constantly changing and shifting priorities/ad hoc projects and you still have to keep your portfolio up to standard, and write market reports if you want to advance up the RA chain to management. Milk, Milk, Milk that lower level cow for all she's worth. That's what you are when you start. OT is allocated gingerly. It really depends on what is going on in a given year.

Advice to Management

don't pretend like you're motivating me with a mass email. Take the time to get to know who your workers are with genuine conversations. Nobody wants to be just another cog in the wheel. treat people with the same respect you're expecting. Have less ambiguity. If you were more loyal to some of your workers and put some time into them, you could unload serious potential and discover how to develop a meaningful relationship with your employees and clients alike.

    Pros

    Good business model. You meet some exceptional people and learn a lot about the real estate industry. The company provides great benefits to working there - health care, decent salary, verizon center tickets, healthy food, paid public transport in the DC metro area.

    Cons

    The work can get redundant. Depending on what market you are assigned to, the work can vary from very easy to very challenging.
