I worked at CoStar Group full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

I've learned a lot working with some great people. CoStar is a growing company and has been since it's inception. Whenever you have growth like CoStar has experienced there can be mistakes. One thing the company really needs to get in order is how it cares for it's current workforce, making sure employees are fairly compensated and a better work-life balance is needed.

Cons

Expectations were not realistic, especially those tied to your compensation, you could easily be slighted for circumstances outside your control. Unfortunately many of the management team lacked the ability to train up their employees and true team spirit didn't exist in my experience, often leading employees to feel unappreciated.

    I worked at CoStar Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Lots of company parties that they pay for
    Lots of happy hours with the team
    If in sales, lots of opportunity to make big bonuses
    My experience was good because of the manager I worked for.

    Cons

    A lot of change constantly,
    Always left in the dark about those changes until the last second.
    some managers carry attitude of "sell or die"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even if I provided advice it wouldn't change them...keep growing yourselves and lay your HUGE egos down a little sometimes.
