    I have been working at Redfin full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Excellent culture, wonderful group of people with shared values, lots of potential and autonomy to sink or swim, full benefits, lots of leads, potential for presidents club trips and stock options, yearly company meeting, meaningful sales training.

    Cons

    Lots of bs "support" jobs that provide no actual support to agents and layers of useless middle management. Zero work life balance if you want to make six figures. Pay structure changes and with each reiteration you make less money for the same amount of work. Everything falls back on the agent who is under incredible pressure to perform.

    I worked at Redfin full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The people that work at Redfin on a personal level are great.

    Cons

    It's hard to make an impact at a company that is constantly penny pinching and micromanaging it's employees. There's a lot of moving fast without actually doing things correctly which makes it hard to be effective and efficient. Even when people know things are broken (processes, specific tools/services used) there is little to no effort to make a change. There's not a ton of support from management in your growth. It's very much a 'take on as much as you can to prove that you're a good at your job and maybe you'll get promoted' vibe. People often times don't have a ton of bandwidth to work on personal development and get to the next level because management is to cheap to hire more people to actually allow people to be effective at their jobs. Lots of burn out.
