Great Tech - Poor Leadership

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The technology at Compass is cutting edge but the leadership took a massive shift and was lacking. Nobody will have your back. Aside from that, Compass is a very expensive broker to work for - the fees add up quick.

Dead end job for staff

They basically want to hire someone to do marketing in a real estate office for the agents that sit in that office, and you basically just do their busywork on Canva & never get a raise or promotion. People are great, but it's a mess


Unlimited PTO, Unlimited Sick Days


No WFH, No raises

Compass treats their employees terribly compared to their Agents

From the day I received my offer letter I had a bad feeling about this company. Throughout the 6 weeks interview process, I was told I would be working out of office A which was 10mi from my home. Upon receiving my letter they changed the office location to office B which was over double the distance, 3x the commute time ( due to traffic) and if I didn't want to add time/distance to my commute it was $14/day in tolls - which the company did not cover. I was told they hired someone else for the office I was told I was being hired for and the only compensation I received was a minuscule pay bump which did not even cover the additional gas or tolls to get to the location. I had multiple other issues that arose during my time there including issues with my direct manager after my personal health issues, an utter lack of learning and growth opportunities, and more. I've remained friends with several people from different departments who have all left for the same reasons I did - management was highly toxic towards employees, the company severely underpaid employees in every position, and promotions were given based on time spent with the company rather than on skill or merit. This company's people & culture department also ignored my emails for months, giving me the run-around, and to this day never paid me out for a week of my unlimited sick time when I was recovering from a medical issue. This company puts the agents far ahead of their employees and you can sense it immediately. If you are an agent, however, they will treat you like royalty.


Beautiful offices, usually by the coast, downtown areas, etc.


Management, Lack of merit based promotions, underpaid, over worked (depending on the position), lack of growth/opportunities

Good tools and leadership

Many technological tools compared to other brokerages. Great leadership and team mentality. Someone is always willing to offer their support when you need it

Very progressive

Great company to work for - from the top down.Great managers as well. The entire staff is concentrated on working for the agents to allow agents to focus on what is important - selling real estate

Becoming Jaded

The company wide goal(s) are honorable and it is clear the agents are highly valued. The actual work is simple with tasks like: Refilling X Y and Z items or routing calls and entering payment info into a database. The office events are always over the top and thrilling, however you "must" attend each of them or be ostracized despite them telling you it's understandable if you cannot go. I love the strong personalities and creative liberties they give you during event planning/prep which makes you feel very valuable. I'm not at all a fan of the poor or passive aggressive internal communication especially in an industry where communication is key. A lot of huge egos and vanity when there shouldn't be when we're a team.


Room for promotion, Fun parties, innovative, inclusive towards agents, great dress code, "instant" benefits, great IT support, fancy Macbooks, snacks, Big name agents


Not allowed to discuss performance feedback, not very racially diverse, micromanagement, egos

Compass real estate is a terrific real estate brokage

Compass has great technology tools, great people for your assistance, and awesome environment for you to work as a real estate agent. However, the Emission and Error insurance each agent has to pay is higher than other brokage.


Awesome environment and plentiful resources for real estate agent.

A lot of hype - but overall positive when you adjust your expectations

A lot of hype and not a great deal of industry knowledge. Calling itself a tech company because it set about reinventing the wheel, recreating tools in glitchy form that existed elsewhere. Wrapping them in sleek Adobe based graphics elevates form over function. So called “AI” lens are just before and after photos with a slider. Not a reinvention of space based on renovation. All the other tools are much the same. But overall nice, if somewhat hapless, folks who don’t understand what is already out there.




Lack of local knowledge and real estate industry.

Great People

Everyone who works here is also working with those who you now call family. Each office allows for different team members to come in with open arms. Real Estate can be challenging but the companies environment makes it worth it.

This company is going down fast. Read the fine orint folks. This company only cares about there bottom line

I have been with great companies and compass was a huge disappointment they end up taking more than they agree to take from your check. They give you money foe marketing and they tKe it back. This is the biggest joke! They look good on internet. No social interaction. Horrible experience .


Look good online


They are a quick loss to the real estate field!

Technology-Driven, Fast-Paced, Diverse Environment

Rapidly growing, real estate technology brokerage. You won't find tech like this in the industry anywhere else. Extremely fast-paced with 0opportunities to learn about tech and to learn about the industry. The workplace culture is a diverse community of women, POC, LGBTQ+, and people of many nationalities. Extremely high standards for respect and fairness. Flexible hours, great benefits, work from home available for certain positions.


Diversity, company perks, industry-changing technology, flexible time-off and sick leave.


Fast-paced start up environment can lead to burn out, Occasional poor communication from leadership, Departmental favortism

Fantastic Place to work but not as Front Desk

Great teams and great people passionate about their work and the good that they do in real estate. Agent Teams are great, IT team is the best around. If entering into a Marketing, Development, Account Transaction processing position, highly recommend as the right career step. They will work you to the bone but you will learn. Front Desk / Receptionist was a great position. Definitely required the ability to be a self-starter, exceptional attention to detail and patience. Great role to develop your resume. You will learn how to do monthly expenses, rent out event spaces and gain numerous abilities transferable to an executive assistant position elsewhere. The role eventually became a position where your every move was micromanaged by people who never performed your job but assumed they had the expertise to do so. If you tried to ask why things were functioning a specific way or attempted to follow up, there was the possibility you would receive a condescending response in turn from a supervisor. Not worth it for this specific role in the end but again if looking into other departments at Compass Real Estate, you are bound to thrive, work hard and enjoy your work experience.
