I loved my job!
Benefits were very good! I love purchasing, receiving, working with vendors. I enjoy Completing IR, GR and PO creation. Enjoyed price comparison between vendors, finding the best quality for the best price. Also, leading new inventions.

Not good place to work
They were deceptive from start. Offered me salary much less than what was advertised. Healthcare premiums very expensive, $1500/month.

Turned out managers weren't really there based upon qualifications or experience, but rather just seniority and having been in company for while. So when existing manager left, someone else was found and promoted into that role, regardless if they actually had experience as manager.


Performance reviews were extremely subjective and evaluation criteria were never disclosed upon hiring. A lot of these were made up on spot when reviews were done. If your manager was sick or in bad mood that day, your reviews would be negative.
Pros
good view of city, lots of lunch options within walking distance
Cons
cut-throat environment, no collaboration with others, lots of in-fighting between departments, discriminatory - seems women & minorities fired most

Manufacturing with division from leadership
The company does not value the employees. They are mostly concerned with the corporate leaders vs the plant employees. There is no respect from the leadership.
Pros
Having a job!
Cons
Benefits continued to be less each year. Respect from leadership was non-existent

Mediocre experience
Working for a large broker has its pro and cons. There are a lot of fees charged to the agents and the splits aren't that good. I received a decent amount of support.

Great working environment
I recommend this company. Unfortunately I was laid off however I hold no hard feelings as I greatly enjoyed my tenor, fellow colleagues and the experience as a whole! Also I received a fair compensation exit package so that always helps. If you're looking to work with great people give them a try.
Pros
Great people
Cons
Ever changing business plan

Welcoming workplace with admirable qualities but minor disadvantages
Working at Hathaway Manor, I have gained a successful experience of what it's like to have a "first job"; however, the work environment is frustrating at times. Management is also confused from time to time but other than that, not an awful place to work.
Pros
Free meals, flexible hours
Cons
Stressful work environment, underpaid

People are friendly...hard to advance though. The job you get hired for is the job that you will have unless you work at the corporate office in Dalton, GA.
Pros
Pay/benefits are good
Cons
no advancement

Productive team-centered environment for new and seasoned RE professionals
Company provides numerous benefits to both new and existing agents. Tons of on-going training provided to maximize your success. Commission split for new agents can be difficult to work with, but company-paid benefits tend to cancel out.

Good place to learn customer service skills
Berkshire is a good starting company. Unfortunately the wages are not competitive to other companies in the market. When you can start out at the competition making more than you left this company with after several years. There is something wrong with the company. No scholarship programs that are geared to all employees. Only minorities get a full ride scholarship. Which is great for them, but does not help anyone else when you are working for less than $11.00 an hour. Raises tend to be between 1 to 3 percent and you start out at $10.08 an hour. And raises are once a year. The one good thing is your PTO time. They start you right away with PTO, but If you are sick they apply the PTO to your absence and you are also given a black mark for missing work. Raises were terrible, vey few advancement jobs. And a lot of promises of advancement that never happened. Customers could be very difficult.
Floor managers overall were pretty good.
Pros
PTO starts after you are off your probation
Cons
Low pay, difficult customers, very little room for advancewment

Great place to work for new or experienced agents
Berkshire Hathaway is a great place to work because of the people. Top notch in recruiting the right people who work well together as a team. Management is very hands on, and always available to assist. You won't find any cut throat agents here. Everyone respects each other and treats each other like family. The hardest part about this job is not having stability in income, and no benefits.
Pros
Flexible hours for working
Cons
no benefits and no income between deals

This was my first office job. I enjoyed the work and the people I worked with. Only complaint was getting the time off if my kids were sick. If I didn't have to move for my husband's job, I would've stayed indefinitely.
Pros
Cafeteria credit, decent pay, EXCEPTIONAL benefits, a lot of family included extras, lots of employee e gagement
Cons
PTO accrual was tedious
