    I worked at Newmark Knight Frank full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Honestly nothing. They are so behind the curve and don’t care to be any better than a frat house, boys’ club mentality.

    Cons

    No matching 401k, administrative staff members are treated like dogs. Overworked and underpaid. Only white men are worth anything to this company. Everyone else is beneath them and it’s a sick club that everyone is aware of all the way up to the top.
