    I worked at Redfin full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Company culture is awesome. The CEO genuinely seems to care, management is really supportive and lovely to work for. If you want to get into real estate, or are a struggling newer agent, Redfin is probably the right choice. You're not going to find a base salary (albeit small) and great (or even good) benefits working as a 1099. Redfin appreciates employees who take interest in improving the company and listens to ideas. There is a lot of room for upward mobility here.

    Cons

    Hours can be a struggle. With a toddler and a couple small businesses, it was too much for me to juggle.

    I have been working at Redfin full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Our culture is like no other company I have ever worked for. The CEO says that we (employees) are the most valuable assets and he means it. That is reflected in our pay, benefits, responses to our needs and the company's overall concern for us as humans.

    Cons

    If you do not like change that may be a con for you. Also, if you are uncomfortable working at a fast pace you may find Redfin overwhelming.

    I have been working at Redfin full-time

    Pros

    - Uplifting team environment - Numerous support systems are in place to help lead agents be the most productive as possible (associate agents, transaction coordinators, etc.) - Great training and leadership - Paid insurance & small monthly stipend Fast-paced

    Cons

    Working 70+ hours a week and still making no money because of the current market situation. Would suggest for the company to implement higher commission splits to agents OR find a way to pay them for work conducted, because losing nearly every offer you submit is really discouraging and depressing. We work insanely hard with little to no pay.

    I worked at Redfin full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    training throughout the process, good health and dental plan

    Cons

    They overwork you and extremely underpay you. They choose promotions based on who they "like" as opposed to the work performed. There are people in high ranking positions with less experience or no experience than the people they manage.

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Great benefits, expenses paid & nonstop leads.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is a challenge in real estate but with the volume of leads and the added nuances of being a corporate employee and a real estate agent, it can feel like you never have time for anything but work. I must say the company encourages us to take vacation and personal but in sales that is tough to do. The company does try to offer some help with this challenge.
