    Pros

    Long & Foster is a strong real estate company compared to most in this area since they are backed by Berkshire Hathaway, however, salaries are not competitive.

    Cons

    Salaries for hourly employees are not competitive, the parent company tends to offer low salaries which does not align with the Metro DC area, where the cost of living is one of the highest in the country!

    Pros

    some nice and actually helpful teammates. Big HQ office but could be updated...

    Cons

    - Highly disorganized - some people have to use their personal laptops which shouldn't be allowed - horrible manager to team coomunication. sometimes they'll leave out a vital piece of info that keeps you from doing your job correctly, and then call you out for it as if it's your fault - condescending VP - zero training whatsoever, hard to get clear direction on anything unless you really dig for answers, but sometimes you don't know what to ask for if you're new. - tight deadlines with unrealistic expectations - barely any office culture, but they're trying to improve that.
