Very distant from the corporate or office world. Independent job that you have to keep your self paced to complete work.

Great SaaS Experience
Account Executive (Former Employee), Atlanta, GADecember 28, 2012
Pros: great team.
This company stays on the cutting edge of technology for the industry it serves. There is a serious commitment to excellence from all departments. The hardest part of the job was developing new business in established markets. All those who could afford the service already had it as a tool. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with a first – more... class group of sales talent. Very refreshing. – less

Good place to work for a while
Senior Research Analyst (Former Employee), Columbia, MDOctober 19, 2012
Excellent learning experience. Good opportunity to learn a new aspect of customer service regarding real estate and the expectations of that culture. I was a part of several great teams that managed real estate portfolios across the country. Hardest part of the job was the constant changes in how employees were measured. Most enjoyable part of the job – more... are the friendships that I continue to enjoy. – less

Research Commercial Real Estate
Research Analyst (Current Employee), Washington, DCJune 6, 2012
Pros
Excellent benefits, flexible time off, positive work environment, motivated employees, a good bit of autonomy while working within a corporate structure, environmentally conscious and charitable. The company doesn't have a losing year. Great job security.

Cons
the pay structure and compensation isn't the best, in certain positions there is a bit – more... of micromanagement on some tasks that seems a bit unnecessary. There is a fair amount of travel in some positions that can be exhausting.

Advice to Senior Management
change the hourly positions to salary positions with bonus and compensation. That way the hours aren't tracked and the results are what counts best. – less

Cold call, have a hunter and farmer sales mentality. Management was ok, not a lot of leadership or guidance. I enjoyed the actual work.

Company sets employees up for failure
Research Associate (Former Employee), San Diego, CAMay 22, 2012
Cons: impossible deeadlines and expectations
This company is horrible; you are required to adhere to a metrics system that changes at the whim of senior management.

A typical day at CoStar will involve trying to accomplish all of the required daily goals while also completing time consuming projects with impossible deadlines.

The coworkers are nice, but tend to change quickly.

The hardest part – more... of this job is to figure out what game the senior management wants you to play each day. – less

Freelance position, left pretty much alone.
Freelance Photographer (Former Employee), nationwideJuly 30, 2014
Pros: good money, plenty spare time if you can work fast
Cons: no security, lonely work.
Taken on as freelance to the business on a 14 month contract.
Work had to be submitted on time, but other than that we were left alone to do it on our own initiative.
It became quite clear that I was doing the "dregs" that the employed staff couldn't/wouldn't do.
The work dried up about 6 months before the end of the contract, which left me in a very – more... difficult position that I'm yet to recover from. Luckily the money was very good and if you had the time and energy it was quite possible to double the income.
Given the chance I'd go back tomorrow, just to top up the bank account. – less
