    Pros

    Great Perks and benefits for web designers (aka engineers). Free lunches, great salary, free sports tickets. Just read all the good reviews, they all come from the engineers.

    Cons

    Real Estate agents- Are over worked. 70-80hr weeks for very low pay. The middle managers do not know anything. Its the blind leading the blind. Glenn CEO, Scott VP of Reops claim to have a Open door policy: HA! What a joke. Yes the door is open and you can come in with your problem, but once you walk out, you get fired. I have witness this numerous times already, good people let go because they were trying to help make Redfin a better place. I see current employees pretend to be happy, knowing that they dread their job. They hate the management team. For a company which cares about reviews and NPS scores so much. The companies own NPS score is so low. No training: They claim to have a training program. terrible, terrible. They don't have the slightest clue how to train people and motivate them. Again the blind leading the blind. I have never seen such waste of time and money. Company likes to train and create cheerleaders. Growth in the company: Yes the company is growing, yes they hire within, but what they do is promote their friends not the best for the job. I have seen this numerous times already. It all starts from the top: Glenn CEO, very smart guy, great engineer and developer. Problem is that he has zero experience running a real estate company, never been a licensed agent, does not have a clue how to generate revenue in real estate. All decisions begin and end with Glenn. Read all the reviews decide for yourself. Better yet Experience it for yourself. Once you do, Bookmark this, come back to this review and know that I was 100% correct.

    Great place to work if you want to be a full time agent!

    Pros

    Company culture is awesome. The CEO genuinely seems to care, management is really supportive and lovely to work for. If you want to get into real estate, or are a struggling newer agent, Redfin is probably the right choice. You're not going to find a base salary (albeit small) and great (or even good) benefits working as a 1099. Redfin appreciates employees who take interest in improving the company and listens to ideas. There is a lot of room for upward mobility here.

    Cons

    Hours can be a struggle. With a toddler and a couple small businesses, it was too much for me to juggle.

    The best company to work for!

    Pros

    Our culture is like no other company I have ever worked for. The CEO says that we (employees) are the most valuable assets and he means it. That is reflected in our pay, benefits, responses to our needs and the company's overall concern for us as humans.

    Cons

    If you do not like change that may be a con for you. Also, if you are uncomfortable working at a fast pace you may find Redfin overwhelming.
