    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at CoStar Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good pay compared to similar jobs in the industry Steady work Great benefits Great co-workers Independent type of work Great for single parents of young kids as it allows to take time off on the "spur of the moment" Great benefits Good amount of days off - vacation, sick, personal days

    Cons

    Crazy metrics that can only be attained by lowering quality. Boring job because of the way it is designed - metrics is all that matter, not quality. Skills cannot be transferred easily to other jobs. Getting stuck and brain washing sensation. Bad upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on information quality, rather than illogically unattainable metrics (unless poor quality).

    Pros

    Senior Management is always cheerful and knows your name. All of them are amazing. We have a company card to pay for Lunch and they provide you with lots of healthy snack to keep you motivated. You can see Andy having Lunch in the cafeteria with anyone at lunch time. Very down to Earth and graceful personality.

    Cons

    We have to share our building.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it going forward.
