Commercial Real Estate Agent (Former Employee) –  Omaha, NEJuly 9, 2016
Being a majority commission position, these is where a man learns that if you slack or your attention waiver to the most minute detail...you may not eat.

Senior Transactions Coordinator (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MODecember 14, 2015

Pros
Flexibility, security.

Frustrating system with several road blocks and the inability to use creativity to solve problems.

Difficult but rewarding work environment
Associate (Current Employee) –  East Rutherford, NJNovember 29, 2015
In brokerage you are usually placed within a brokerage team. One's experience is highly dependent on your team leaders. An Associate's main role is to develop new business. This includes learning the market, walking buildings with prospective clients, doing research on companies in your market, networking and a lot of cold-calling to generate new meetings and clients.

It is certainly a very cut-throat environment where most do not succeed. But there is a lot of upside. I think the best thing about the job is that you learn a lot very quickly and that you get a lot of exposure to C-Level executives in a wide range of industries.
Pros
High-income potential
Cons
Your income is highly dependent on the clients you generate

Very bad work life balance

A place where in the politics comes directly from the top management, just dumping work on their subordinates and not being considerate. Low levels of appreciation and unnecessary bundling of things which are not work related.
Cons
Poor management, poor department head, bad culture, very poor work life balance
