      I have been working at Newmark Knight Frank full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Staff is amazing. Everyone is willing to help when needed. Casual dress attire. Flexible schedules.

      Cons

      Treats their tenured employees like garbage. No structure. No training for new programs that get rolled out. Inconsistency throughout offices. So many tools to do your job, but NONE of them work properly. If you're not a broker, you're not important. Health insurance is absolutely TERRIBLE.

      Advice to Management

      Treat your tenured employees better. Give them the raises they deserve so they can make as much as the strangers you just hired off the streets that know nothing. Try harder to retain good talent. Stop being so cheap. Fix your programs and get everyone on the same page. Acknowledge staff - they're the people that are making you look good!

      I have been working at Newmark Knight Frank full-time (Less than a year)

      Pros

      Management treats employees with respect and dignity. You think this would be a given, but A LOT of companies don't. If you get your work done, no one is bothering you. As a result they have high retention/ low turnover, so as a new person, you can get lots of help and training from the more senior people, some of whom have been there for 15-20 years. I think this also translates to stability and consistency for the...

      Cons

      A lot of the workload is busywork. This is not the fault of the company, but of the clients. They all want things done in certain arcane ways, so there is a lot of redundancy and duplication of work (and so much printing!). Of course, everything is all due at the same time, so you have this big crunch at the first and last weeks of the month, and a lot of downtime in the middle weeks. Oh, and no 401(k) match which...

      Advice to Management

      Keep up the good work! 401(k) match, please?

      I have been working at Newmark Knight Frank full-time for more than 8 years

      Pros

      A well known and well-heeled firm that pays competitively when they are trying to recruit you and been on an M&A tear over the last 5 years.

      Cons

      New structure and management are driving the firm into the ground. Infighting and greed from the top down are resulting in a terrible environment lead by people more worried about quarterly guidance, stock price, and personal exit strategies than building a better brokerage.

      Advice to Management

      Get back to brokerage rather than building a ticker symbol. It's apparently not working, the market never lies.

      I have been working at Newmark Knight Frank full-time

      Pros

      Flexible schedule, laid back environment, casual dress code, leave work at the office, friendly coworkers.

      Cons

      No structure, takes advantage of it's employees by constantly adding new tasks and workload without compensation, not competitive pay, poor management, not a challenge, no career advancement, no training, and company does not want to spend money on much needed employees (no receptionist, office services, IT).

      Advice to Management

      The Dallas office needs a serious overhaul. Could be a great place to work if the time, effort, and money was put in by management.
