    I have been working at Hamptons International part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I started to work for Hamptons Int. beginning of 2018, coming from a small estate agency I was overwhelmed with the compliance they had into force. Soon settled in with management ensuring that I felt part of the team, identifying areas of improvement in order to better personal and professional growth. Very happy and content working for them and would imagine myself a very long term career with Hamptons.

    Cons

    Some of the training modules I nearly fell asleep on however not all of them!

    I have been working at Hamptons International full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Amazing culture based on respect, aspiration and loyalty. Incredible people, amazing opportunities for career progression and really good ‘word hard, play hard’ culture. Awesome trips for top performers too!

    Cons

    Parent company still has a LONG way to go, although this has a minimal impact on the amazing culture and strong values of Hamptons. Basic salaries are rubbish, but overall earnings are really good.

    Advice to Management

    Be bold, be brave and maintain parent company involvement at minimal levels.

    Pros

    Friendly teams, good atmosphere in nice locations across the country.

    Cons

    Salary is not very good, should be about a third of your take home with commission but the market is really struggling so be prepared to live off your basic regularly.

    Advice to Management

    Increase basic salaries!

    Pros

    Great people and culture. Amazing support and training and great career pathways. So many people stay for a long time which shows what a good company it is. So many people who leave come back or miss working for Hamptons.

    Cons

    Pay could be better in some roles but people love working for Hamptons so much they do't go elsewhere.

    Don't need to advise anything as they are doing a great job.
