    Pros

    Structured environment with corporate leadership, reviews, benefits, advancement opportunity.

    Cons

    Sometimes the international range of KF can be a bit confusing. There is a vast difference between Knight Frank offices across the world. Although there is a lot of structure and a clear goal at all offices, they may function differently from one another - even in the same country

    Advice to Management

    Consider finding a way to standardize more efficiently across all offices.

    Pros

    Relaxed working atmosphere; however, generally a huge disappointment.

    Cons

    No career progression despite reassurances, poor wage, bullying within workplace by manager. Consistently provide support to fee earners whilst belittling support staff.

    Advice to Management

    Do not promise career progression to prevent resignations and then not follow up: one year of my life wasted.

    Pros

    When I worked there the IT culture was good, we were all friendly and we worked as a team. It was a low stress job most of the time. I was encouraged to learn, not just do my work.

    Cons

    As a developer looking backwards it we didn't stay up to date with new tools and technologies. There was very little process or code convention improvement and there was absolutely no time given to refactoring old legacy code. The IT Manager could be very emotionally immature at times and this could create discontent and low morale within the development team.
    Performance reviews did not couple with a salary review. Salaries were not competitive to with the market. There was little to no recognition for work done by anybody except the bread winners.
