    Pros

    Funding, Recognized Brands, Franchisees, HQ Office, Cafe

    Cons

    It is a holding company owned by Wall Street investment community. It took on over $6 billion in debt and continues to squeeze the debt payments out of the employees and franchisees. It is not a "real" company in that its managed by former REALTORS rather than business people. Its business model is outdated as is its leadership team. The brand presidents are figureheads with very limited ability to affect any substantive change at the brand or enterprise level. No new ideas, wasted tech investments, no guiding principles or business plan. Lots of fluff, no actual meat on the bone. It's a legal Ponzi scheme that ultimately will go private again because it cannot increase EBITDA over the long term. Its brands will continue to lose market share because it continues to provide less service to its franchisees. The only value of the enterprise are; its brands, middle management, and select VPs who are under increasing pressure to do more with less. There is a culture of fear led by Richard A. Smith, a classic authoritarian. Legal and HR are the most powerful forces within the enterprise and that says a lot. Today it represents everything that is wrong with corporate America.

    Advice to Management

    Divest and eliminate Realogy the holding company in its entirety. Sell off the brands to a true tech company operating in the space or a related space. Relaunch the brands that are capable of standing on their own (CB, C21) with younger, entrepreneurial, tech-savvy, more forward-thinking business leaders. Empower the middle management to bubble up game-changing concepts to innovate the business model.

    Pros

    Depends on what team your on that will determine both your success and happiness there.

    Cons

    So many! Too many upper management changes and rules constant. There is NO diversity as much as they like to tout it ~ as a minority you basically hit a wall once your a Manager or Director there is no opportunity after that. A lot of misogynistic and ego men who have no empathy for maternity leave, work life balance as well as no more experience than who they oversee yet basically are corporate taking heads who seem to keep moving up the ladder just because they speak great presentation. Upper management has no clue what's going on in the field. They call themselves "real estate leaders" but no one in leadership positions has ever done real estate. They do not listen to the agent populations of what is working and what is not. The agents loathe corporate as they should because they come up with ridiculous plans that usually do not translate waste a ton of money and IGNORE THE FEEDBACK then pat themselves on the back and then give each other promotions while terminating all the truly good talented people after they over work them. Their travel policy is ridiculous and Managers ignore people having to travel on Sundays and Late Fridays. They enforce all these useless reports and conference calls that do nothing. The benefits are less to be desired. He so-called bonuses are a joke and never received basically and they use it to lower your salary.

    Advice to Management

    Terminate the top management. No diversity does mean hiring people outside of industry experience. Provide more support to field services and ensure Managers, Directors and VPs are held accountable to ensuring their teams are fulfilled. Don't just allow a one filter up on feedback on how things are going. Certain Managers and VPs have been there way too long and are comfortable and complacent.

    Pros

    - Great work life balance ( no overtime)
    -Gym on site is beautiful and useful
    -Great kitchen on site for food and etc
    -Beautiful building

    Cons

    - Manager is probably the most egoistical person I have ever met. It basically feels like he doesn't do much. He is not a good leader, and expects his audit team to try and work through the audit themselves without managing them. Poor communication.
    -Too many meetings that take up during the day with no clear objective. Lots of communication from the management side, yet no communication from the staff side. When the audits don't go the way it should, management freaks out because they never gave you a chance to discuss the audit
    -poor leadership from upper management, no sense of coaching or mentoring
    -Management favors certain groups ( if your a women, forget about working here) Manager favors employee and talks about sports all day long in the cubicles
    -poor raise ( 2% is a joke for a fortune 500 company )
    -think twice about joining this company... pretty miserable if you ask me.
    -no room for growth ( very hard to shift to a senior role)

    Advice to Management

    - stop playing favorite
    - mentor and coach your staff more
    -make your employees feel comfortable to approach you with questions
    -stop making your employees feel beneath you ( YOUR a manager)

    Pros

    Wonderful people, family environment, and good managers. I never feel like anyone is breathing down my neck while I'm working. I am given enough work, and my manager allows me to complete this on my own. It's my first position for a company, and it's been a dream.

    Cons

    There is not much room for growth since it is such a small office. People socialize a lot, which can take away form doing your work.

    Advice to Management

    Hire Senior Managers that understand the New York City demographic.

    Pros

    Descent benefits, good supervisor. Little or no micro management. Supervisor tries to set realistic expectations. Supervisor is a boots on the ground support member.

    Cons

    Unreasonable expectations for the compensation. Concern for job elimination always hanging in the balance based on business needs. Expectations are to be positive and encouraging to others while getting heat and lack of support from others. Always living with the fear of being "thrown under the bus" by others.

    Advice to Management

    If you raise expectations, honor those that work for you with fair compensation. Do not leave the people on the ground making things happen with the fear that they could lose their job on a moments notice. Believe in them, coach them, support them.
