Pros

I've learned a lot working with some great people. CoStar is a growing company and has been since it's inception. Whenever you have growth like CoStar has experienced there can be mistakes. One thing the company really needs to get in order is how it cares for it's current workforce, making sure employees are fairly compensated and a better work-life balance is needed.

Cons

Expectations were not realistic, especially those tied to your compensation, you could easily be slighted for circumstances outside your control. Unfortunately many of the management team lacked the ability to train up their employees and true team spirit didn't exist in my experience, often leading employees to feel unappreciated.

    Pros

    Has longer-term potential, if you're patient. Can be a very easy job, once you get the hang of it.

    Cons

    Is newer to the Atlanta market. Local leadership is not as strong as the leadership from headquarters.

    Advice to Management

    Consider trying to attract more talented entry level researchers.
