      Pros

      Training is very highly valued and encouraged. They also don't charge a bunch of extra fees for office or admin. I've had some success using the national network for referrals, so that's a big plus. I don't participate in the profit sharing program, but I can see how beneficial it is. Also, I know Gary Keller has some national fame that definitely contributes to Keller Williams brand recognition and reputation.

      Cons

      It's more challenging for teams and contract agents outside of the Portland area. They do have a lot to offer, but I recommend not using this firm if you are too remote. It might be harder to generate leads in remote areas if Keller Williams doesn't have a strong presence there. If you wanted to lead your own team, you could definitely make it work, but you would have to be vigilant about keeping contact with the main office to receive most of the benefits Keller Williams has to offer.

      Pros

      Profit share is the best thing about working here, especially if you’ve been here a long time and you know how to build a down line.

      Cons

      If you fall out of favor with one of the people in power, you might as well leave because your life gets difficult fast. These people have a penchant for firing perfectly capable employees because of some imagined slight. Of course they win “Best Place to Work“. Employees are instructed to give only positive feedback on the survey. People are afraid of losing their jobs.

      Pros

      The people. The focus on developing the agents. The technology and training. Profit Share. Last but not least is the non-profit KW Cares that provides immediate support both physical and monetary to agents and their families in times of need — not a loan or anything asked in return....just people helping people.

      Cons

      Higher commission split To the brokerage than some competitors (not the Highest though).

      Pros

      Historically, had profit share that was around 20% of your salary or higher Work-life balance is good People are nice Pay is competitive HR seems to have your back any time you ask for help and they really seem to care They're finally getting around to learning remote is a good choice

      Cons

      -Profit share has been frozen indefinitely -You're forced to go to 2 real estate conventions a year, share a hotel room with a randomly chosen coworker for one, use only their mode of transportation if you want transportation covered, and get a daily stipend of only $25. You'll be giving product demos. -No support for learning at all- not even PTO for conventions where you've paid the registration and transportation or tech certs where you've paid for the training and course. If you want to get better, you have to do projects on your own time that won't benefit KWRI at all because KWRI doesn't implement many new projects and you're always overloaded with the existing projects. But if you don't do projects on your own time all night and weekend, you'll never go further in this industry because you'll be tied to KW's obsolete tech choices. You have no autonomy to implement anything else during your work hours and you'll end up learning bad coding practices if you rely only on KW. -Your coworkers in IT/eng will primarily be overseas contractors, limiting time you have access to them -Things used to change on a whim all the time. We're getting better at this, sometimes.
