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

    Pros

    Great benefits overall, work life balance isn't bad once you reach a manager level. Salaries are competitive at the manager level. Agents are given freedom to work without supervision as long as they are closing deals and get overall good reviews.

    Cons

    Local managers don't own their job itself or decisions on their direct reports anymore. Upper management has shifted to micromanaging everything that happens in the field everyday. This approach has really strayed from what I considered to be the core values when I started of supporting people at all levels and trusting your people to do the right thing and do their job effectively. Agent base salaries and bonus keep going down over the years because there are so many mouths to feed at the company.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits and good salaries for management

    Cons

    Zero work/life balance as a manager or agent. Support positions are better. Company is morphing from a quirky startup with a soul to just another public company making cut-throat decisions to satiate Wall Street.

    The company had a strong culture and set of values. Full time comes along with a great benefits package!

    Cons

    Workload can be daunting. Base compensation could be better. Benefits help to make up for it!

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

    Pros

    Great benefits. Generally great co-workers.

    Cons

    Constant changes that sometimes make your job harder. Different sets of rules for different people. The company is fiercely against remote work, however, there are employees who are "grandfathered" in which causes resentfulness and a feeling of unfairness among coworkers who work just as hard but are unable to take advantage of this perk. Newer employees not only get paid significantly less but have to watch while senior employees are held to a different set of standards and play by a different set of rules. Inexperienced managers. No growth opportunities outside of Headquarters and Hub locations.
