    Pros

    This brokerage has great training. Really good support staff and they are pretty well known, at least in the state of WA I know.

    Cons

    The splits and caps are usually higher, for the namesake I believe. Every brokerage is different though. I didn't like all the charges, especially interviewing with other JLS offices.

    Advice to Management

    They were a good support system. I really liked the Renton office.

    Good location

    Pros

    I worked at the corporate office. Fellow employees were some of the nicest and most helpful people to work with. It's a small office so you really get to know everyone on a personal level. Work/life balance was great.

    Many of the executives are great to work with. They never make it seem like they're above you. They're approachable for both work and casual conversation.

    CEO is friendly and you can see he clearly loves what he is doing. He has a lot of passion for the industry.

    Cons

    Many employees are overworked.

    Don't see a lot of room for career advancement other than that title changes along the same path. Lots of promises but the action is slow or never takes place.

    No 401K match.

    Advice to Management

    There's a great foundation and family atmosphere among the employees. Invest more in employees.

    I worked at John L. Scott Real Estate (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    laid back, work on your own schedule.

    Cons

    lots of fees, managing broker was clueless, internal tools were a joke

    Advice to Management

    your internal marketing tools are terrible, can't fathom how much you must have spent on those. focus a fraction of that money on education and you will be better.

    I have been working at John L. Scott Real Estate full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fantastic corporate leadership and culture, training opportunities for new brokers, collaborative broker environment, leader in technology for the "traditional" brokerage and open to change and innovation in a quickly changing industry

    Cons

    Office leader makes a huge difference, choose wisely. Tough business to break into independently, may not be for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Technology and brand development/relevance could use some work

    I worked at John L. Scott Real Estate full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great broker support system. Any and all questions you have will be answered by either a trusted associate agent or the managing broker. Great branding and recognizable name. Clients trust the John L. Scott name. Smart agents and great training opportunities

    Cons

    Don't like the new UX on the website, hard to navigate and difficult for clients to use. It used to be the most user friendly real estate search engine out there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Again find the right office with a managing broker who is 100% there for you, it's your job as an agent to find this, remember.
