    I worked at RE/MAX full-time

    Pros

    --- Read the reviews carefully! The majority of reviews are from brokers, agents, realtors, etc., from various locations, and are not representative of the actual company headquartered in Denver, CO. The way the company works, these people are not employees, rather, they pay to use the company's name and resources. Surprisingly, the actual company has less than 500 employees. This review is of the world headquarters in Denver, CO. --- Nice building and location. The company has an outstanding reputation in the real estate industry. There are a lot of really nice, albeit unqualified, people. The company has a laid-back atmosphere, bordering on almost too laid-back. Despite being mismanaged, the company means well, and tries to take care of it's employees. There are a number of employee appreciation events and neat perks as an employee.

    Cons

    Despite IPO, the company is still run like a small private company. Cronyism runs rampant!!! Beware! Too many attractive young people, who were obviously not hired based on qualifications. Shockingly unqualified people from top to bottom. This kind of environment could only exist at a real estate company. Antiquated technologies, systems, and processes. Poorly managed IT department that is stuck in the 90's. Management and HR is oblivious and neglectful. Pay is below industry standards. Overall, the company has a tacky sales feel. Coming from Fortune 500 companies, I can honestly say, this company is a joke. If you are seeking employment, look elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Start replacing upper-level management and work your way down. Too much dead weight. Too many unqualified people.

    I have been working at RE/MAX full-time

    Pros

    Nationally, it's the most recognized real estate company that attracts top producing agents. The name RE/Max is an abbreviation of "Real Estate Maximums" referring to the maximum commissions one could make as a real estate agent.

    Cons

    While the commissions may be deemed maximum, the new agent training is more of a minimum as compared to other real estate brokerage firms.

    Advice to Management

    By investing more time and training into the new agents your turnover rate will lessen as your return on investment gains.

    Pros

    Amazing benefits and Flex Fridays for most departments. I've never encountered a person who was in a bad mood at Headquarters--the most friendly work place I've ever been at.

    Cons

    The pay gap is rather large between the different levels of employees--understandable to have some difference, but not so much. Not the most ideal pay for industry standards, but livable.

    Advice to Management

    Develop clear career progression paths for current employees to advance. Having everyone on career tracks can help with turnover if there's a goal they're working towards. Don't slip back into "traditional" work environments...follow the trend of tech companies and offer telecommuting, flexible hours, fun incentives to incorporate team bonding, etc. We were on track but seemed to have slipped a bit.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, great people to work with, access to Sanctuary golf course.

    Cons

    Politics - advancement is all about who likes you, and has nothing to do with work performance. Also, employees are by in large underpaid compared to similar roles at comparable companies.
