Horrible Place to work if working in Adminstrative Department
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 21, 2018
Really awful experience. Best way to describe would be "Devil Wears Prada" experience. Administrative work is very disorganized because people are either fired or quit very often. Type of place you could never please higher up management.

I've been at The Corcoran Group since 2002. I love my office and office manager. I create my own schedule. Corcoran has continuing education for free and keeps you informed of all new laws in place. Marketing materials are also provided by Corcoran so you can create your own unique marketing plan.
You create your own schedule.
You get paid on commission. This is also a pro since commission can be very high.

Great management and internal resources. Corcoran has a healthy sales team environment and the best training in the industry. I've learned a ton from my colleagues and had the opportunity to work alongside some of the biggest brokers in the industry. Corcoran is the best real estate brand in the business.

There were a balance of advantages/ disadvantages of working at the Corcoran Group. Overall the experience of meeting many different agents was definitely an experience. The company definitely lacks diversity and can be improved upon. Management in the administrative department was very unorganized. The HR department often swept certain issues under the rug if complaints were made against people that brought in top company dollars. No holiday bonuses!!!!!! Other than that I very much enjoyed working with the colleagues on my team.

Management here is pretty terrible. Corcoran over charges for marketing and really doesn't care about new people that join. Their commission structure is not supportive for growth. They honor tenured agents and don't give enough training and support to newer agents - and I wasn't new, this was just my observation. Their business model is really outdated. My advice would be to try a lower commission brokerage.

Good working relationship with team peers, superiors and managing director. Developed and honed skills related to effective marketing, sales and management in the field of luxury residential real estate new development in New York City.

One of the largest and most prestigious real estate companies there is.Be prepared to execute all aspects of residential property sales for both buyers and sellers, from initial showing to close. Brokers and and salespeople are commission only, so be prepared to be working 24/7-work and life balance can get blurred easily.
Professional, Ethical and very friendly environment
Real Estate Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Bridgehampton, NY – December 4, 2013
The good thing about working with independent agents is that they essetially work for themselves and I am here to asist them with any needs. Everyone has been very friendly and I get decent health benefits. The management team is very good with their agents and staff. I have learned a lot about how real estate is done in the Hamptons, NY and have enjoyed viewing all of the amazing properties.
Advertising and Marketing (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 10, 2013
An excellent company that respects your time and understands life is not always 9-5. The CEO makes a genuine effort to get to know you and your name. If you work hard and complete your tasks, it is not an issue if you need to slip out for a doctor appointment or leave early to pick up a child. The morale is high and I feel as if you are rewarded for your efforts.
Broker's Assistant (Current Employee) – New York, NY – December 12, 2012
A typical day at work for me would be to come in at 9am and usually I am the first one at the office! I open the front door and turn on all of the lights and go to my desk and work... My office is located upstairs from the store front and there is a beautiful open window view of the city by my desk.
The staff and management is very friendly and like family here.
I have learned allot from Corcoran and will take what I learned here and apply it to my everyday lifestyle.
The hardest part of the job is the pressure that some clients give you for wanting their issues addressed as soon as possible. This can be hard when you are working with one or more customers at a time.
The most enjoyable part of the job is making clients happy and satisfying their needs.
