What are sales commissions like at Berkshire Hathaway?

Pros

Nice office, nice brokers, staff that can help you with creating marketing brochures/postcards, managing brokers who dont do their own business, marketting templates, internal forum to discuss topics amongst other brokers

Cons

Not the best mentoring, once you join on your own you cant switch to being on a team, not everyone is treated equally, top performers get treated better then new brokers, new brokers go through tons of in class training but dont even know how to do a listing or buyers presentation, arent given fair leads to start their business, basically you wont get anywhere unless you are very self motivated, commission for new brokers is low comapred to competitors and there is also a royalty fee to use the name. No desk for new brokers only some shared computers against the wall. A little bit old school. Would rather let people quit then give them a higher commission to stay or work with them to match what competitors give. No ladder to success.
