    Pros

    Hard work and dedication are rewarded with competitive commission and promotion. Company promotes from within. Diverse workforce, in terms of age, gender, race and orientation. "Work hard, play hard." Constant support at every level, even within competitive sales forces.

    Cons

    Sales roles aren't for everyone. You will need to constantly challenge yourself to succeed.

    Advice to Management

    Employee surveys and consultation are great; more of these please. It's good to feel that decisions at the top are being made with the front-line staff in mind.

    I have been working at Foxtons full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    When I started I had no experience in the industry. Even then training was second to none. Since then training has improved beyond recognition and continues to improve as the industry changes. One of the best reasons to work for the company is that it is a true meritocracy. You will not be overlooked for a role if you work hard, have the correct attitude and produce results. The environment is fun to work in and over...

    I have been working at Foxtons full-time

    Pros

    Having worked at Foxtons for almost 12 years, I can safely say that I work for a great organisation. I had no knowledge of property or real estate, Foxtons took me on and almost 12 years on and still learning and growing as my career progresses. Working at Foxtons will not just give you a job, you'll get a career. The ongoing training and development becomes part of your progression. All of this as well as being in a...

    Pros

    Being part of the UK’s most dynamic property company is one of the many reasons I’ve stayed at Foxtons for so many years. It’s a fun, go getting environment with some of the best senior management in the industry. The benefits are well above industry averages, including a company car, fuel card, parking allowance, iPhone with bills paid, laptop and iPad. Foxtons invests in its people, training is outstanding, the investment...

    Cons

    I honestly cannot find any, so long as you have the right attitude nothing could be described as a con. If you work hard and look out for the people around you then you will go far.

    Advice to Management

    Keep in investing in your people and you will reap the rewards!

    I have been working at Foxtons full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Not having a degree or higher education qualification and coming from the construction industry as a builder I was worried coming into a job like this that I may be out of my depth but I have to say the training provided was next to none. Before you start in your respective office you get sent to the Foxtons head office & spend a week in the training department receiving some of the best training from the industry...

    Cons

    Hours - Maybe they can be looked at but to be honest it’s just a matter of managing your time better and I've been able to transfer my newly learnt time management skills in work into real life situations and it’s massively helped me!
