    I have been working at Keller Williams part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Slick technology; good name recognition (not great as they don't advertise -- before working for them I never heard of them and I lived in various parts of the country); positive and uplifting work environment (though this may vary depending on Market Center); good training (will be "great" if you enjoy learning from videos); ability to cap and keep 100% commission. Highly experienced brokers are generally helpful!

    Cons

    If you don't embrace their model -- cold calls, scripts, and door knocking -- you'll be left out in the cold. Little mentoring. Training is provided mostly by video or via brokers with varied (i.e., usually 1-2 years) experience (the "superstars" are too busy) -- and you pay for EVERYTHING (signs, business cards, copies, office space, advanced training, voicemail, use of their logo and app and website, etc). Often large Market Centers which can be impersonal and have a lot of turnover. They don't really support brokers who are not full time and/or who don't FULLY embrace the KW culture.

    Pros

    Great culture and educational opportunities. As an agent you have the freedom to be as successful as you want to be and the opportunity to learn as much as you want about the business. I love the ideas the leaders have come up with and implemented for the company as a whole. When management is available they are very helpful. Experienced agents have been the best help. For a big office the system is quite efficient.

    Cons

    The company is so largely focused on recruitment and growth i think it misses connecting with the day to day people right in front of them. The culture, as great as it is, from my perspective has been watered down with the growing size of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Take the vendors out of the offices and be more selective about vendors pitching in meetings. There is too much marketing everywhere to agents.
