Employee (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXJanuary 24, 2019
You are expected to work 7 days a week and on call without stand by pay. Expected to work all day and all night, 7 days week. Stressful environment. This job will work well if you're single, wouldn't work if you have kids as the company sometimes comes across as anti family.
Pros
Nothing

YoYo company, Beware of poor Management
Managing Director (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNNovember 26, 2018
Wow, how can a company get so much investment capital and still not have any experienced management? Crazy how misinformed this company is about the Real Estate industry. Good luck if you put your foot in the Opendoor ! It's run by kids with daddy's money.HR is only familiar with tech hire . Not at all qualified to hire real estate or construction personnel. Big problem for each department to staff properly. Stay away !
Pros
Big focus on free lunch
Cons
Childish management, Poor HR department

Not a good place to work
Valuation Lead (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVNovember 1, 2018
Management has little experience in real estate with high expectations and demands, little to no appreciation for great work, plays favorites, uses their employees for their knowledge and will get rid of them before their shares vest.
Pros
Decent salary and benefits
Cons
Terrible work conditions, inept management, long hours, little appreciation or recognition

Smart leaders but poor leadership
Home Advisor (Current Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZOctober 20, 2018
Opendoor has a lot of very smart, Ivy League, tech people. They are cold robots that don't know how to relate to non data people. Senior Managers are highly analytical with zero sales skills or real estate experience. Opendoor is a service industry that relies heavily on sales and customer service and with the current set up, it does not make for a successful company. They have been around 4 years and are barely staying afloat. If you are going to be in the real estate world you need to hire people that understand real estate.
Pros
Hard working people
Cons
Mid Management and Senior Management don't understand real estate, sales, nor customer service

Get better management.
Manager (Current Employee) –  DallasSeptember 5, 2018
This company could be successful if they hired someone who understands business in a real world environment. It’s a real estate business not tech business that Opendoor needs experienced leadership in. Maybe the SF investors will realize it . People working at Opendoor laugh about how dumb smart people can be. Hiring someone over 40 is almost unheard of in Opendoor. I’m surprised they not being sued .
Pros
Lunch
Cons
Poor management

Hire Experienced Management ,Seriously poor leadership
Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZAugust 25, 2018
I have never seen a company hire such inexperienced people in Real Estate or Home construction business. They don't have a clue what they are going. From General Manager to department Vice President of Construction, ect. No real world business knowledge. They only have a little book knowledge. I don't see investors getting there money back. So much more profit is possible with experienced people in leadership positions.
Pros
Well funded by investors
Cons
No experienced management. City operations could improve by hiring experienced leaders

Growing Company, Growing Market
DESIGNATED MARKET ANALYST AND VALUATOR (Current Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVMay 6, 2018
Opendoor takes the traditional way of selling a home and simplifies it. They have found a way to take out the middle man, using technology and algorithms, and offering to buy houses at fair market value, allowing people to easily sell their home.
As a Designated Market Analyst for Opendoor, I have spent months now on the acquisitions side of the process, helping people sell their houses to Opendoor at fair market value. The company is incredible in the fairness, transparency, and timeliness at which they handle everything. My in field supervisors are incredible, over-qualified people, and my office supervisors are amazing people as well. We all stay connected at all time, working as one big unit, not individuals.
I spend about 8 hours in the field a day, and 2 hours afterwards writing final reports. Good gig for the pay!
Pros
Great management, great teams, easy process, 1/2 in field - 1/2 work from home
Cons
Contract position, no benefits

Sales Team/ Realtor (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CAMarch 21, 2018
As a member of the Agent Partnership Team we were tasked with working with other real estate agents with prospective buyers to try and find solutions to help the clients purchase Opendoor homes. Work place was a enjoyable yet demanding but lacked some organization.

Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZNovember 30, 2017
Management is the worst! You receive a great pitch about culture, benefits and work life balance during interviews and it's all a lie. There is no room for growth as all of upper management are close college friends with no mortgage experience. They are the shadiest start up company I have ever worked for. You're expected to work long hours, weekends and nights for no extra pay. I was better off working for corporate! The CEO is way too busy to even introduce himself or address any major issues within the company.
Pros
free lunches
Cons
family healthcare expensive, poor management, no work life balance, no room for growth

Buyer Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZAugust 6, 2017
This is a great company if you want college fraternity and sorority culture and professionalism thrown out the window.

HR barely does their job - located in a different state! hard to get a hold of, they do nothing with what you report.

Management is terrible. They are overpaid and underpay their employees. There is no support from management.

Although you expect structure to be different in a start up - there is no structure and big changes are abrupt with no thought to employees, like changes in massive procedure changes/job description changes, commission reductions, PTO changes...too many to count. They try and fluff up the perks they offer like free food and free gym membership to cover up all the managerial failures they continue to do.

If you are a manager and overpaid, you love it. Otherwise you don't matter to them. There is no room to grow professionally.

Work life balance purely depends on what team you are on.

Staff are consumer driven, while some of the administration is money driven
Assistant Program Director (Former Employee) –  Stockton, CAFebruary 12, 2016
The most enjoyable part of the job is working with the consumers. The hardest part of the job is keeping up with demands when a typical work day for staff is 6.5 hrs.
Pros
Forming lasting bonds with the consumers you work with
Cons
see for yourself

Fun, flexible workplace and valuable learning experience
Market Consultant (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZAugust 25, 2015
I just started a couple weeks ago as a market consultant (MA).

Pros:

-flexible i.e. get paid for the work you provide and there are no set work hours and can work from anywhere there is a wifi or internet connection
-pay is reasonable
-feedback is constant and help is readily available
-everyone on the team is great and genuinely seems to enjoy their job
-fun office environment if you ever go to the actual office

Cons:

-How much you can make is essentially at the mercy of how many valuations come in and how much time you have available to spend on them
-It's a contract position with no benefits
