I left Zip because the commission split was terrible and they focused primarily on Buyers and I wanted to work with Sellers (the market had changed). I felt I was working too hard for the reward I was getting, but it was a personal decision. By the way, Zip has changed their business model since I worked there, so it may be different now. You need to analyze your goals and see if it will work for you.
Whether you should do to zip or not really depends on where you are now, what you are doing there, and why you think the grass in greener on the other side.
If your business is not growning, it likely has very little bearing on the brokerage you are with or the one to which you are goind.
The ONLY reason you should change brokerages is to retain MORE of your ever increasing revenue.
Read that carefully.
In a nutshell, if you are not successful where you are, you wont' be where you are going. If you are expereinceing success...and you want MORE...now you've got something legitimate to pursue.
Descrive the 'green grass' you see in the zip pasture that suggests your will thrive and prosper?
Be aware, EVERYONE is atempting to sell real estate agents pipe dreams, from Adword to Zillow, and CB to Zip. And agents keep buying.

Realistically I never seen anyone really turned down by a real estate brokerage so you can choose anyone that you think will help being you the most business.
In my opinion if a company is not providing you with leads the only thing you are gaining from them is corporate branding. If you can develop a marketing plan and you have a budget to execute it then I think you are well on your way to becoming an successful agent. If you are hoping that being with the right company is the key to being successful it may be tough out there for you if they aren't providing the business.
