    Thank you for the lovely review! :) I'm sorry to hear about the lack of earning potential. If you were still with us I would've suggested discussing this with your manager.

    I worked at Kinleigh, Folkard & Hayward

    Pros

    There are no pros working for KFH

    Cons

    Don’t believe a word of the recent reviews. They have all been written by senior management trying to promote the company on a recruitment push due to the fact they lose staff quicker than they can hire them. None of what they have written is true. Staff are treated poorly with little or no benefits. Micromanagement within head office and branch makes for a miserable working life. Nothing is done to address the bullying...

    I worked at Kinleigh, Folkard & Hayward full-time

    Pros

    Good systems in place and good pay

    Cons

    Do not believe the recent reviews. They are all written by senior management to try to fool people into thinking this is a good company to work for. KFHs culture is bullying, discrimination, micromanagement and flat out misery. My time here was awful and I had an office with inappropriate staff talking about sexual things all the time, racism, bullying, gossip all the time. Micromanagement and sexism in management Please...

    Advice to Management

    No comment. Your micromanaging, dismissive attitude towards racism and bullying just speaks for itself. Avoid avoid avoid.

    I have been working at Kinleigh, Folkard & Hayward full-time

    Pros

    Given this is my second time working for KFH, in total spanning 12+ years I am well placed to know just what a fantastic company I work for. Here are some of the benefits our front office staff can expect: - Uncapped earning potential! - Industry leading packages! - Terrific incentives, as well as holidays abroad and a fleet of Porsche's for our top achievers! - Great staff, terrific teamwork and morale.

    Cons

    I can't think of any, but you must be prepared to graft and work hard!

    Pros

    I have worked at KFH for 18 years and love my job as much as I did when I first started. I started as a Lettings Negotiator and worked my way up to Regional Lettings Director. At KFH if you work hard you are recognised and rewarded for it. This recognition and reward come in the form of a highly competitive salary, opportunities for career progression, incentive trips (LA, Las Vegas, Verbier, San Francisco, Barcelona,...

    I worked at Kinleigh, Folkard & Hayward full-time

    Pros

    After having worked for the company for over a decade, the biggest pro is quick progression if you consistently work hard. A fun and sociable environment is also encouraged and it is very easy to make personal friends along the way.

    Cons

    If you go off on maternity leave and don't have a direct relationship with the MD, prepare for your accomplishments and value to be forgotten when you try to return. Your return is made to feel as a nuisance and you feel a decade of consistent hard work and success for a brand you had held such high admiration and respect for, was worth nothing. In short, if you are hard working, want to make money and have fun doing...

    I have been working at Kinleigh, Folkard & Hayward full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    They set targets that require you to work hard but they reward the successful! I have worked for KFH for a few years now. I have always been paid well and won many trips that include skiing and San Francisco (which are basically fully paid for!!) there are lots of many other rewards such as a company car, vouchers for regional competitions and time off over Christmas! The Managers / Directors will offer support if...

    Cons

    There are generally not a lot of downsides if you are not afraid of a days work. Like any commission based job you generally get out what you put in to it.
