Lack of communication and direction

Workplace culture is everyone for themselves, coworkers regularly throw each other under the bus. Lots of finger pointing and zero accountability. Information is scattered and communication non existent. Poor benefits/very little PTO.

Pros

Competitive salary

Cons

Health benefits, Pto

Productive

I would get to work and get ready and work doorman all day meeting new people and making connections with others. I worked as summer relief, so I had to work many days and many hours with no break. I enjoyed working as a doorman.

Learn new skills and interact with many different people

I learned various skills across facility operations, customer service, security, and maintenance. The hardest part of the job is working with difficult residents, and maintaining the upkeep of the building.

Lacking in community

It was not a supportive environment, managment was never there and lacked knowledge to provide the kind of support needed. Must be very self motivated.

Short and Sweet

Although, my time at Douglas Elliman was short, I appreciate the business opportunity they offered me and would also recommend this company to other realtors.

Good and Bad

The good was you can work at your own steady pace and the bad is that there are a lot of boxes and it is not labeled. They also need to have a order to help find the correct labels.

Amazing managers

The management is supportive and helpful along with other agents' employees. Anytime there is a question to be answered or helpful suggestions, the management is right by your side.

Great Company

This job paid decently and was not super stressful. I would have stayed if I didn't have such a long commute at the time. I have nothing negative to say about it.

Terrible Place to Work

Stay away. Management is terrible. They choose favorites and feed them leads. Maggie was the worst managing broker I've ever dealt with (didn't even speak Spanish in a VERY Spanish Miami Beach.

Competitive Workplace

Working at Douglas Elliman was very competitive. Everyone I worked with was very nice and fun. We all became friends outside of the workplace as well.

Good Company for Starting to Mid Level Growth

Overall, Elliman is a great place to begin one's career and to grow. However, there are currently no places to move up from upper-middle management so at this point, transition is helpful. Management support is very strong, and often they are glad to help and give training on various skill sets.

Huge company with prestige

Douglas Elliman is one of the oldest and best real estate agencies in New York City. There is a culture of professionalism that trickles down from the managers to the agents.
