    I worked at Cubitt and West full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great branding and they get a lot of business so there's no need to canvas for it.
    Opportunities out there if your willing to be a backstabbing lying worker.
    Pension scheme, capital bonds scheme
    Yearly awards ceremony

    Cons

    Long hours for a rubbish basic. 20% pay cut after the company announced a record profit year in 2012.
    Bad management and unfair treatment of staff.
    Staff have no input to the work style in the office (depends on office)

    Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at Cubitt and West full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    the training - but it will cost you

    Cons

    Employees are made to sign a contract, to try and reduce staff turnover. They call it their "training fee". If you miss having a life, and don't want to work 12 hour days anymore; then they will charge you £1000 out of your salary to leave.

    Lunch breaks, or any breaks for that matter aren't permitted.

    The company claim to be the best - and they do this by promising Homeowners an over ambitious price for their property. The company bully their customers in to doing everything in-house (mortgage, conveyancing, etc) in order to secure the property of their dreams... but even if a deal is made; there's nothing to stop someone else coming in with a higher offer.

    This might sound great for the people that are selling their homes; but in my experience any property that has achieved an asking price higher than expected will only be down-valued by the surveyors anyway,

    So if you want to work for less than minimum wage, and say goodbye to your life; this is the job for you.
