    I have been working at Reis full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you've just graduated from college or aren't sure what you want to do long-term, you'll get excellent organizational and time management skills at Reis. Benefits are good, and the bonuses are relatively generous.

    Cons

    Very difficult to move up. Communication could be better, especially for implementing changes.

    Advice to Management

    Create a more open environment for staff to report issues and see changes being made.

    I worked at Reis full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has a very low entry barrier, low level of standards, and for the most part most you'll only work about two hours and work on a side job (if you have one), school work or read books in the office.

    Cons

    Management does not pay attention to what happens in the office. They don't understand their job and how they add to the industry. The critical function they play in a clients investments. In one occasion, I asked my co-worker why they don't value their work, their response was, "they don't care it's not their money" which blew my mind.

    Advice to Management

    The reviews you read on the internet and from current and former workers are true, in operations, the white plains office and the people. Company needs to be completely overhauled. Most of the information being recorded isn't accurate. Their are people collecting wrong data points, leaving critical out data entry, or leaving them out because, "its not asked for".

    Other then that keep up the great job, its the reason you had to sell the company and why customers didn't value your product enough to subscribe to your service.

    I have been working at Reis full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Overall the benefits are pretty good, and the office has a generally relaxed atmosphere. The firm has recently been acquired by Moody's Analytics, it seems to me (this is my personal opinion based on many discussions with colleagues) that this is the only reason many people are staying on, people are hoping for an improvement but many have one foot out the door.

    Cons

    The pay is abysmal, and the benefits only help so much. Additionally, while there are some career advancement opportunities they are generally only for employees in the NYC office, the white plains office is generally treated as an afterthought. You can move from a survey role to an analyst role in White Plains, but that's about it. We've had three new HR heads in as many years, this is the same with the office manager.

    Advice to Management

    Pay a living wage. This company tracks rents and most of the employees in the White Plains office are making somewhere in the range $38,000 and $44,000; this makes it extremely difficult to afford housing in Westchester County and the surrounding region. As an employee with over three years with REIS my income still leaves me qualifying for affordable housing in the 60% AMI level. Our competitors all pay a better a wage, this might have something to do with the staggering turnover rate in the office.
