Decent workplace.
Helpdesk Technician (Current Employee) –  AlabamaMarch 12, 2017
Good place to work. Typical day involves the usual tech support, change passwords, install printers, setup email across several different platforms, document everything in a ticket. I learned a good bit about the various Apple products and the new Microsoft platform by hands on support. The users are normal users, frustrated sometimes but for the most part easy to service. The system takes some time to learn but once you work it out it's good. Only issue I have is the benefits. Best part of the job of course is casual Fridays. The culture is pretty laid back. Management for the most part leaves you alone.
Pros
Laid back environment, casual Fridays.
Cons
Benefits.

This company offers the freedom Realtors expect with a corporate structure.
Sales executive (Current Employee) –  Birmingham, ALNovember 27, 2012
As a Realtor there is no typical day at work. Each day and each customer are different. This was the first company I worked for as a Realtor. The company has a training facility and instructors that compare to no other I have experienced. The hardest part of the job is that it is strictly commission based compensation. With a family that can make life difficult. The best part about the job is seeing the customer happy after the transaction is complete. Knowing that you helped them reach the end result.
Pros
up to date technology
Cons
the fee that is charged to each customer on top of the commission that is paid.

Industry Leader
Managing Broker (Current Employee) –  Birminghm, ALJune 7, 2012
Managing 52 independent contractors and 2 direct reports brings new challenges every day. Helping them negotiate deals for the best out come of our client, to being a sounding board as they work through their own transactions.
Residential real estate has become a very emotional job for every person involved, the high of getting offers, the low of deals falling through.
Getting to the end and everyone getting what they want makes this the most rewarding job ever.
