    I worked at HomeServices full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -a lot of freedom on the job
    -the people are easy to get a long with

    Cons

    -no real motivation for realtor partners to work with you.

    Advice to Management

    Create a better joint marketing plan with realtor partners so they have a reason to work with you. They are afraid of doing this for compliance reasons but many other lenders do.

    Pros

    Big company with potential growth. Managers usually know what they are doing.

    Cons

    Half the people are unprofessional and crappy to work with. Don't just say there are opportunities to move up when there isn't.

    Advice to Management

    Preach professionalism and promote more fairly.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. It is a very collaborative environment and there isn't much drama. It's fun to get to work with the different companies in the field as well as the employees in the corporate office. Everyone is friendly and very knowledgeable.

    Cons

    I wish we had more company holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage more team building events so that the employees can get to know each other both in and outside of the work environment.

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

    Pros

    High turnover so there are always openings. Some really good people have been there before you. Part of Berkshire Hathaway so expected long term survivability.

    Cons

    Toxic environment. Leadership doesn't have a clue what they are doing or how to create a positive environment. Executives only care about lining their own pockets and doing business with their friends and those that will sacrifice all for them. Parent companies too scared of CEO to make a change.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the CEO immediately, fire HR Leader immediately, review other leadership positions for appropriate decisions versus being yes men/women. Hire leadership that understands leadership, team building, positive culture/environments and the industry.

    Not everyone needs to be involved in every decision, this is causing delays and poor decisions.

    Pros

    They pay for your parking and/or bus fare. PTO rolls over year to year so you can accrue a lot.

    Cons

    High turnover because managers are so focused on earning money that they don't care about the employees. There is little room for advancement within this company. Management is inflexible.
