    I worked at Foxtons full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    * Great training * Genuinely enthusiastic, knowledgeable, passionate impressive people to work with * Class leading use of technology to make your job as easy as possible. Essentially a lot of tasks that distract you from making more sales are highly automated leaving you free to earn plenty of commission

    Cons

    * Staff are often over worked and underappreciated * Working hours are too long with no flexibility * Staff turnover is enormous, my entire team left several times over in twelve months

    Advice to Management

    Adding in a little flexibility with working hours would go a long way to retaining a few staff. Perhaps giving half a day off in lieu when a weekend is worked would help

    I worked at Foxtons full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I had a blast developing all the amazing marketing campaigns we did. I had a huge budget and had many of my designs appear in TV and movies such as "Sex in the city", and "The eternal sunshine of the spotless mind".

    Cons

    The long hours were brutal during the holidays

    Advice to Management

    You need to learn more about American culture before you market here again
