Glassdoor: These are the best-rated places to work in real estate | 2017-12-06
For those who aren’t familiar, Glassdoor is a website that allows former and current employees to rate and review their experiences at work.
And every year, the website releases its Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards for the Best Places to Work. And every year, Facebook pretty much takes the top spot.
But how do real estate companies do? How many reach the top 100 place to work, as rated by the people who work there?
Well, there are a few ground rules. Companies must have a good number of reviews to start with. Also they are divided by the number of employees; 1,000 workers or more, or fewer than 1,000. Surveys are also submitted by those workers, with advice to management.
So, drum roll please…
The highest-ranked place to work in real estate is…
Keller Williams (4.5 stars out of 5), which landed 13th overall. The company moved up 18 spots from the 2017 list.
However, that is according to the survey results provided to HousingWire from Glassdoor. By clicking on the actual company profile, the employee rating is currently listed at 4.2 stars out of 5.
