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

    Pros

    Having been at Foxtons for coming up to 3 years I can confirm that the company is fast paced, energetic and great fun. As a Lettings Negotiator, the company prides itself on meritocracy so no matter who you are or where you come from everyone starts the job on the same level which is one of the reasons why the company attracts a diverse range of people and makes the workplace so enjoyable. The commission structure has...

    Cons

    11-12 hour working days which can take some time to adjust to and working Saturdays twice a month. However, you enjoy your full weekend off even more! The job is typically based on commission although you can just stay on a basic salary with no commission. Either way, commission isn’t for everyone but is worth it if you can hack it!

    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!

    Freedom to manage yourself and your time. You gain a sense of independence that is rarely seen in other companies. This sense of independence gives you sense of growth.

    I have been working at Foxtons full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I have been a property negotiator at Foxtons for over 2 years now and can safely say that I continue to be impressed by how this company continues to grow and strive for the best results in an ever changing market. The training program is the best plat form you can hope for when starting a new career as an estate agent. I came from a completely different back ground with no sales experience at all yet with the Foxtons...

    They look after their own employees. It has very friendly environment and is pleasure working in central Foxtons offices.

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

    Pros

    I started at Foxtons straight out of university with a degree that had nothing to do with property or sales. In my many (16!) years with the business, I have been lucky enough to work in several different teams, every time with exceptional people, both my leaders and the people who worked for/with me, to support my career. With such an incredible support network around us, we work operate at a very high pace, but...

    Cons

    You expect every other business to operate at your level, the bar is high! Leaves you disappointed when dealing with people externally.
