    I have been working at Keller Williams full-time

    Pros

    The agents are very helpful. They teach tons of classes to help you in real estate

    Cons

    You still must have the drive to succeed. It is real estate so you need to work it like a full time job and not wait on a commission check.

    Advice to Management

    Good job!

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

    Pros

    They will help you grow. During this harvey hurricane they check on you. They volunteer to help each other rebuild.

    Cons

    Slightly high cut on commission, but caps at 21k. If you and a spouse together you share same cap tho!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! Love you guys so much and happy to be apart of the family.

    Pros

    Great opportunities to make a high salary and you get to have your own brand and keep your database of clients. Mentor-ship is given only when you join a team of realtors. Training sessions are included but not all of them are helpful. Comfortable environment, with most colleagues that are friendly and willing to help.

    Cons

    Small commercial division with a growing luxury presence. Long work hours are required if you want to make a decent salary. Top producers have to work much more than the average. Very strong accountability and self-training is required. Realtors are self-employed, hence you will need to purchase your own insurance, invest in your own retirement, ect.

    Advice to Management

    The quality of training is reduced in result of the massive amounts of new agents join the company/market-center. I wish KW will implement a mentor program that helps training new members from A to Z of the process and not require us to join a team.

    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.

    Pros

    The training is amazing, and other agents will do anything they can to help! Facilities are outstanding, and the culture makes you want to go out and sell.

    Cons

    New agents can feel a bit hung out to dry at first if not being mentored by anyone. But follow the training and you'll begin to make it!
