    Cons

    Workload can fluctuate based on the market, but this is expected for the real estate industry. Management does a great job of rewarding staff when they have to work longer hours during busy seasons and allowing flexibility during the slower seasons. :)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! It is incredible to see how many employees have been able to move up within different departments of the company and it is very clear that you value your employees and want them to succeed.

    I worked at Jameson Sotheby's International Realty full-time

    Pros

    Close to one of the CTA stops

    Cons

    Underneath the luxury branding, this place is a total chaotic, sloppy mess. If you enjoy the following though, perhaps this is the place for you... High turnover - the most I've ever seen in a corporate office, especially the marketing department Being overworked due to understaffed departments Lack of leadership - some managers had literally no prior experience Being micromanaged Lack of training and support No...

    I worked at Jameson Sotheby's International Realty full-time

    Pros

    Big brand and potential exposure to training.

    Cons

    Bad commission splits and cost for marketing materials. There is a limited amount of materials agents get before having to pay

    Poor and unorganized Upper management, very low salaries, no room for growth, run as fast as you can

    Advice to Management

    You can’t run a company if you don’t pay your employees or don’t offer growth opportunities. Eventually everyone will leave.

    More diversity.
