    I worked at Intero Real Estate Services full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Some of the people are kind and friendly. The starting salary was decent. They tried (keyword: tried) to have a laid back atmosphere.

    Cons

    Major workplace bullying. Cliques formed with employees AND bosses and the bosses would use favoritism to give easy work to their friends and difficult work to those that weren't a part of the clique. They were incredibly unprofessional, going so far as to gossip about fellow employees (again, even the bosses, or at least one in particular, did this) whenever they thought the employees wouldn't hear. They used workplace bullying and creating unrealistic work standards in order to push out people they didn't like so they wouldn't have to fire them. This one particular boss had me work 14 hours straight the day after getting out of the hospital for a spinal injury to complete a project that could have been completed by my coworker, who was the favorite. Also because of this hospital stay that made me miss a single day of work, I was "disciplined" by being cornered in an office (10 minutes before I was supposed to leave for an appointment, which was approved well in advance) and forced to sign a document about my performance and about requiring me to arrive at the office 30 minutes earlier than everyone else, take my lunch break at a specific time for a shorter period than anyone else, not take more than two bathroom breaks or breaks to walk to the break room and back (which I needed to do for about 3 minutes every so often for my spine, and this was established when I was hired) ,leave the office after everyone else at the end of the day, and submit regular performance reviews - all because I was disliked, missed a day of work being in the hospital (which happened because of the job!) and was bullied. I was literally, by legal definition, held hostage by not being allowed to leave the room until I signed the performance review paper with no option for discussion or having HR present (who didn't help at all when I reported the incident, by the way). I was forced to sign the paper so I could make it to an appointment about my spine injury, which was caused by having to work several 10-14 hour days in a row because my coworker was the favorite and as a result a completely unreasonable amount of work was put on me. After that last incident I was forced to take a medical leave for my spine. The day before I was to return to work, HR called me and informed me that they had replaced me with someone else. That could have happened anytime during the month long leave, but they chose to call me right before I was supposed to return. During the time I was on leave, I spoke to Stanford's legal clinic about my treatment at Intero and was told that I was a textbook example of a whole lot of illegal employee treatment, among other things. Lucky for Intero, I decided not to pursue legal action, because I don't want that to be a stain on my record for future jobs, and I don't need the stress of a lengthy legal battle.

    I have been working at Intero Real Estate Services for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Realtor was extremely compassionate and encouraging. Work responsibilities were clear and well-communicated. Realtor exemplified incredible customer-service practices in her interactions with clients. I was able to gain an excellent sense that my work was directly helping meet the needs of those in my community. I was able to clearly recognize that my efforts were making a positive impact in the lives of others.

    Cons

    Saturated real estate market makes it difficult to identify and connect with clients that we can help. As such, commission-based pay and work-hour demands were extremely unpredictable. Work-life balance was challenging, due to unpredictable needs and schedules of clients. Position was also location-based in an area with an extremely high cost of living.
