    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 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 a year

    Pros

    I've worked at KFH for nearly two years and only wish I had made the move sooner. They provide a strong basic salaray with one of the best commission structures offered in agency as well as smart and flexible company vehicle options. The management is excellent from what I have experienced and you are pushed to do the best you can. I feel I've developed so much as an individual and an agent whilst working under the...

    Cons

    I honestly don't feel there are any that specifically relate to KFH. Pay, work life balance, promotions, incentives, colleagues, management and the company cars are all great. The negatives are the same as any other when an estate agent, some saturday 's have to be worked, the hours are longer than a 9-5 and your pay is never garunteed to be the same but if agency is the career...

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

    Pros

    Very competitive basic salary Decent earnings potential Nice offices to work from Some friendly and supportive work colleagues. Administrative support from my assistant was fantastic.

    Cons

    Very long mandatory hours, which seem unnecessary given the low levels of business Lots of micromanaging Very inflexible to what you can and can't do, with no ability to venture out of the office to see clients, and no work mobile offered Extremely rigid and not always clear compliance team A targeted environment that is completely out of step with the rest of the mortgage broking world and is no wonder the majority...

    Advice to Management

    Sales negotiators need to be given some sort of an incentive to refer business over to financial services to keep mortgage consultants busy ensuring deals are tied up, and KFS stays afloat.
