Great pay & benefits but micromanaged
Researcher (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON18 July 2018
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.

bad environment
Research Associate (Former Employee) –  Ontario16 December 2017
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.

Fast and Frequent Sales Staff Turnover
Senior Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON23 August 2017
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.

Complete waste of time
Don't work there! (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON30 December 2015
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.
