People are great. HR is strict, and not employee oriented. Not many options for career advancement. Require a month training in the US for every position. High rate of turnover.

The company's product is good and the company has a steadily growing presence in Canada so it was a huge opportunity to be immersed in many if not all facets of real estate through the daily interaction with real estate professionals. Great entry level pay, metrics-centric job for those looking to break into real estate/marketing and analytics rolls. However, little opportunity for advancement and the top down never knows how to properly inform companywide changes in processes or metrics. Management is poor and inexperienced and obsessed with office politics and were constantly unprofessional.

This company is a great way to not only break into the commercial real estate world, but to strengthen knowledge and build relationships across various real estate verticals.

While it is a young and fun place to work with lots of added benefits like a referral bonus, stocked kitchen, beautiful office space and lots of swag giveaways, the job itself is dull and boring and there is no opportunities to advance.

The company has a great work-life balance, but be prepared to work hard to move up in a metric-based environment. Hard work does not go unnoticed here.
Pros
Free Lunches, Gym, Trainer, Fruit, Snacks
Cons
Lack of Transparency

I started at the company in an entry-level position and with a lot of hard work, was able to progress into a leadership role. The company typically gives back what you put into it.
I was offered a lot of opportunities because I worked hard for and asked for them, but also they became available - a lot of it is about timing.

The entry-level positions can be a grind, but you will gain valuable experience that you can take with you to other positions in your career. Use every day as an opportunity to learn!

My advice for anyone at CoStar is to be transparent with your manager to ensure they know your career goals and what resources you need to be successful. They want to help you succeed as much as you, but they're not mind-readers!

The pay is unbeatable, especially considering the fact that there is great work-life balance. You come in at 8:30 & leave at 5 - never have to work over time. Entry level pay itself is from CAD $50,000-$65,000. There's alot of micromanagement though. Management only cares about high productivity & high productivity only. They never put themselves in your shoes & just expect you to be working like you're a machine.

- lots of young people so you make friends

- repetitive job, have to talk to people who hate you

Don't come here if you have an entrepreneurial mindset.

Call centre Job. CRE professionals do not respect CoStar for good reason. Stealing data and selling it back to clients for a crazy high amount. I have plateaued with no chance for advancement and I have been working at CoStar for less than one year. Do not recommend working here.

It is incredible with the amount of time, money and effort that CoStar expels on training new Account Executives, that the success rate is barely 10% after the first year.

Not a great place for people with any talent for work, but for playing games and enjoying office politics. Very high turnover. Being forced to work in an unsafe manner is typical, although they appear to be on top of it, no real safe filed practices are implemented. The practicality and unfamiliarity of life in Canada makes them a poor choice for a long-term employer.

They have a great outside image, inside it's another story. Sad, as they could be so much more.


Learned a lot about mapping, and Geolocaiton software and the commercial world of Real Estate.


Met some amazing co-workers from all across Canada. Best part of the job actually.
Pros
Good first time job for a kid out of University.
Cons
High turnover, poor management, no accountability for illegal practices.

Disorganized company, asking for irrelevance as they don't know what they're doing. Put it this way. If the management was so successful, why would they quit Toronto's red hot real estate market to sell software?

Results do not lie. That's why their job ad is permanently "sponsored ad' everywhere.


Read the negative reviews everywhere online. Every now and then they clean up but all the negs come back & their ratings only drop.
Pros
Visible as they need to keep advertising
Cons
It's not real deal!!! That's they they're desparate.
