    I worked at Kinleigh Folkard & Hayward full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Working for Kinleigh, Folkard & Hayward (KFH), was a great experience. Their on-going training program was a great asset to the foundations of all employees. As a customer, no matter what office you would have dealings with, you would be served in the same professional manner throughout the region. KFH is professional, honest and in my opinion the best agent in London.

    Cons

    There could be more emphasis on progression.

    I worked at Kinleigh Folkard & Hayward full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I worked at KFH for over two years. The positives were that comission structure was easy enough to reach. On the whole the culture is good and everyone gets along and most offices have good fun environment.

    Cons

    Marketing is dreadful, no employee benefits at all! No proactivity they just react to the market. No understanding of how to motivate employees and cost cutting at every turn, understaffed in many departments making it much harder to focus fully on your main job role.

    Advice to Management

    understand staff lots of turn staff turnover especially the higher bankers moving on, be more flexible one contract structure for everyone does not work.

    Pros

    The job itself - estate agency is great if you get with the right company!

    Cons

    Bully culture. This company is toxic to its core. The online reviews for each branch which are meant to have been given by clients, the vast majority are left by the staff themselves which the Managers and Directors encourage them to do, illegal! The good reviews on here are also the same as the company can’t retain good staff so they are now trying to backtrack and show themselves as a good employer as they have...

    Advice to Management

    A complete overhaul is needed. Victim of own success!
