    Pros

    Easy workload. Good home-work balance. All employees are friendly. Nice, clean and new work environment. Supply coffee tea milk/cream and hot chocolate for free.

    Cons

    Make you feel comfortable, but they continue to outsource certain positions and displace American workers. Not all of the management works together

    Advice to Management

    Keep jobs in America

    Pros

    If you are a man, a white man, you will soar in this place. Only if you really like working 80+ hours a week....

    Cons

    If you are a man, you will get promotions and opportunity. If you are an executive man you will get a huge salary, lots of perks, and big bonuses. If you are a woman, where ever you start here you will stay. They use terms like optics and paradigm. There is no upward mobility in this company. They brag about ethics, but if you share a concern, they will make you feel like you are complaining. Men here make about $30k more than woman. Men are also entitled to work from home and receive overtime, flex time etc. If a woman needs to do that, they are accused of being a mother first. This is not a company for women. If you are a stock holder, you will make lots of money. If you are a worker, you will not.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within, there is so much talent in this place that goes unnoticed. If someone works hard and takes on extra work and WANTS more, help them. Don't give them advice such as "well you are a mom, so you probably want easy work", or "you are an assistant, accountant, etc it is all about optics". Your HR team, is one of the worst in the business, this is why you settle discrimination and wrongful firing suits yearly.

    I have been working at Realogy full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good work-life balance, some brands have strong values and great coworkers. The company does have an active diversity and inclusion program. The facility is very engaging, if crowded. There are still areas of the company that are truly great places to work.

    Cons

    Company is losing the script. It successfully navigated the great recession, but seems to be losing its way during the current recovery. The brands are being gutted and critical functions turned into shared services. This is a recipe for disengagement by the brands, and more importantly, the affiliates. Many of the corporate functions fail to demonstrate the values the company claims are theirs, and nowhere is respect mentioned in their values, apparently with good reason. Some senior executives (notably not CEO Richard Smith, but several that report directly to him) are outright arrogant and show disrespect for those who work for them and colleagues across the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Put the brands front and center again. Learn a little humility. Your engagement survey from 5 months ago may have showed everything is rosy, but after the reorganization of this summer, it's completely irrelevant. Throw it out and start over. The answer will be significantly different, and not better.

    Pros

    The company is continuously evolving. Your job will never be boring and you'll always be stretched outside of your comfort zone. The environment is definitely challenging.

    Cons

    The experience will depend on the Leadership team and the Manager. The job/role may be a great opportunity however if you're not a good fit with the Manager the dynamic will be off and you want grow in the way you'd intended. Do the research and due diligence and ask the hard questions about issues that are important to you (professional development, career goals, how much direction you'd like in your work, etc.)

    Advice to Management

    Need a good mix of engineer minded individuals with former sales people to reach a healthy dynamic.

    Pros

    Good benefits and bonuses.

    Cons

    I have been through multiple down-sizing initiatives. The last one eradicated all current jobs in several major professional areas. And as people left, they did not authorize new hires and most people ended up doing multiple jobs without additional pay or promotion. Not much appreciation shown for hard working staff.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue. Show appreciation for dedication and hard work.

    Pros

    Overall, there are no pros. Highly unethical HR and senior leadership

    Cons

    HR among the worst. Employees have no place to turn. HR outs anyone who lodges any type of legitimate complaint.

    Advice to Management

    Very OLD, repulsive, unethical senior management. They keep losing their best. They refuse to listen to any advice from "below."

    Being part of a global family
    Entrepreneurial - working with affiliates is amazing

    Cons

    A small circle of people at the top have little to no respect for the business
    The values of what made Realogy a great place to work are gone. ( the EVP & Engagement survey results are contrived)
    The "values" of the business are not in alignment with the day-to-day business reality

    Pros

    This was one of the greatest experiences of my life. The company had great leadership and an aggressive posture toward growing top line revenue in the real estate franchising business.

    Cons

    While this was one of the greatest experiences of my life. The company had great leadership and an aggressive posture toward growing top line revenue in the real estate franchising business, the downside was an obsession with company stock price on a daily basis.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees a greater opportunity to voice their concerns about the long term strategic direction the company is going.
