      Pros

      I enjoyed my time at Berkshire Hathaway, from the beginning they make you feel like family. Amazing staff support, pay is great and you receive your insurance benefits within 30 days, plus 40 hours of vacation time. The Human Resources Manager also goes to your location and provides you with on-boarding paperwork and explains everything. Great company!

      Cons

      No overtime, stressful to meet deadlines but that is a given everywhere.

      Pros

      Growing company with great opportunities to advance. Great benefits including health coverage, education reimbursement, profit sharing, 401k with company match, every 5 years a vacation bonus, employee and guest free holiday party, this year paid every employee a 200 bonus because company did well, management very approachable, great company enthusiasm and energy, fair compensation, wonderful employees and the best parent company in the world Berkshire Hathaway.

      Cons

      You work hard. This kind of growth (26% per year) doesn’t always come with additional employees hired in advance. Therefore we usually have too much work and to get it done timely you may come in early and stay late but in the end they hire and things calm down. It is a small price to pay for job security and long term career opportunity in Wilkes Barre.

      Absolutely a wonderful company

      Pros

      This realty company has low fees. They also provide many tools to help you succeed. In addition to the tools, they have training and a business development department that offers access to leads to help you grow your business. There is the e-leads , in-house realty leads from Quicken and the corporate relocation leads. Training is necessary for Corp Relo, but you are then certified as a Relo agent. Cost for the training is nominal. Just a great company.

      Cons

      There is not really any cons. I am an independent agent so I work for myself under the BHHS umbrella.

      Pros

      Great company to work for, excellent support from managers and fellow agents. In-house marketing and escrow services make things run smoothly.

      Cons

      Commission-based employment, so there can be some down time. However, the earning potential is really up to each individual.

      Pros

      BHHS is a great company that really works hard to support their employees and agents. Being associated with the Berkshire Hathaway name goes a long way for credibility.

      Cons

      BHHS needs to create their own identity outside of Warren Buffett. The company has old-school branding and thought processes. These are also what makes them great, so it will be interesting to see what the future holds.
