    I have been working at Hamptons International (More than 8 years)

    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.

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    Great training and support structures in place for an ever changing work environment. Happy friendly people who know how to laugh.

    Hamptons is starting to reinstate its own identity and move away from Countrywide in the 'Post Platt Era'.

    Cons

    There is a lot of red tape and sometimes the lines of communication are totally blocked by it. However, in the 'Post Platt Era', there is a move towards managers being given back the freedom to run their own office.

    Advice to Management

    More transparency from senior management. The board of directors need to be more accountable for bad decisions which would make them act more swiftly to rectify them......!

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

    Pros

    The people and the culture are what make Hamptons such a special place to work and that runs through all offices and departments. The desire to do the right thing is everywhere

    Cons

    Some of the communication could be clearer and there can be a desire to manage by spreadsheet

    Keep up the good work! Spend more time in the network and less time in meeting rooms

    I have been working at Hamptons International full-time

    Pros

    Still enjoys an image from the past and some residual kudos

    Cons

    Chauvinistic, ageist and punitory attitude

    Advice to Management

    Listen more, ask more, learn more. Promote fairly and on merit. Recognise experience and talent especially when it comes from 'outside the box'. When did we stop trying to motivate staff and decide whipping them was better? When did we start managing our people by spreadsheets and bottom lines? In the words of Richard Branson - look after your staff and they will look after your customers (sic).

    Structured working pattern and always an opportunity to progress if you want it.

    Cons

    The lack of transparency at times is frustrating. We are all adults here so why not act like them.

    Advice to Management

    With recent changes to senior management its difficult to suggest anything towards the senior team at Hamptons at present.
