    I worked at Hamptons International full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The people are hands down the best part of Hamptons

    Cons

    Being part of the Countrywide network has seen pressure put on support services and taken some decisions out of Hamptons hands. Sadly that has mean the lost of resources which have made it difficult to support front line staff over the past few months and years.

  3. "Worst place and environment to work, would not recommend to anyone ... EVER"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Client Account Manager in Bristol, England

    I worked at Hamptons International full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The job itself was fine, the branches that i worked with on a daily basis were lovely.

    Cons

    There is so many cons to this place, The management, The seniors (except 1), The constant bullying and the horrible environment. Management would constantly whisper and chat amongst themselves and then wonder why you weren't happy. Management acting unprofessional in-front of everyone trying to make a point and embarrass you. Nothing was professional. Everyone felt exactly the same (unless you were in the little click), just take 5 mins to see the amount of leavers in the last two years to see how bad it was. I was told it was a lovely and friendly place to work and this couldn't be further from the truth. My mental heath improved ALOT once i left ( i didn't realise how much it was really affecting me) There is so much more i could say about this place...
