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

    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...

    I have been working at Kinleigh, Folkard & Hayward full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The offices I have worked in have been really friendly - best people I have worked and no nastiness. Excellent company for trainees, fantastic training and a great starter company. Incentive trips and regular competitions.

    Cons

    Hours - you often don’t get a break on Saturdays between 9.30 and 4 (sometimes later). I have been dizzy at the end of a lot of Saturdays as you do not have time to eat and are back to back with viewings. Micro management. Promotion doesn’t seem to be given on merit or experience and it’s made difficult to progress - It is worth noting that this is based on conversations with colleagues that are trying to get into management,...

    I have been working at Kinleigh, Folkard & Hayward full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Kinleigh Folkard and Hayward took a chance on a 21 year old university graduate with no experience or knowledge of property. They hired me on theere trainee programme at the time and invested time, knowledge and skills into me. I have subsequently progressed from trainee negotiator to sales negotiator, sales assistant manager and manager where i have held my current role for past 5 years. I have never worked for another...

    Cons

    There can be preferences and small gripes in any company or relationship but as a whole there are no real cons for working for this great company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the culture and ethos that i have enjoyed and excelled in for past 10 years and perhaps have a look at a role bridging the gap from manager to director level to offer a step up for established, ambitious and talented managers who have career advancement as their goals for future.

    I have been working at Kinleigh, Folkard & Hayward full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    If you are prepared to work hard, like people and love winning then KFH is the perfect company for you. I owe much to KFH; I have an amazing lifestyle, great friends and colleagues and am in the minority of people who love what I do. Whilst the brand does some of the heavy lifting for us it is the people that makes KFH the most successful and best estate agent in London to work for. The Porsche incentive cars, company...

    I have been working at Kinleigh, Folkard & Hayward full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I have worked at KFH for three years now, progressing from Sales Negotiator to Sales Assistant Manager in this time. I have been able to progress and earn a decent amount of money, as well going two incentive trips to Miami and Verbier and driving the Porsche. I would add that the company does expect the best out of you and as long as you are prepared to work hard, then you will be fine.

    Cons

    None that I have experienced
