    I have been working at Knight Frank full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Knight Frank is a great place to progress your career, with excellent training and personal development opportunities. Having spent nearly 14 years at Knight Frank, I have never been held back from opportunities to progress my career within the business, whilst making great friends and having fun.

    Cons

    It is difficult to find a negative about working at Knight Frank. Sometimes the decision making process can appear slow, but I think this is a reflection that the people making the decisions care.

    Good line on your CV

    Bullying, racism, snobby culture, favoritism and no recognition. No action to concerns raised and horrible psychological pressure no matter how good you are in your daily work. No transparency or decent explanation on bonus scheme. It's all about pretending not doing

    I worked at Knight Frank full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - I joined thinking it would be my long term career... it’s a good name to have on your CV. - Some of the work was interesting and a lot of the more junior staff were lovely (as well as a few Partners) - I left having made a really good group of friends, 6 of whom also left the same department as me within a few months.

    Cons

    - Massively overworked, underpaid and under valued. - Senior management favour those who shout the loudest about their achievements and suck up to those higher up the “food chain” than them. - Senior management bring in incompetent managers who receive regular complaints, have their whole team leave within a couple of months yet don’t do anything to rectify. - Supposedly allow “flexible working” but you felt scared to ask to work elsewhere or from home as they had no trust. - Empty promises of promotions when already doing a more senior role without the job title on promise of promotion. - Partners who were approachable and not above conversing with more junior staff used to constantly ask how certain managers were still working there given their feedback and why so many people were leaving certain teams and departments. I now work for a company who make all the same promises but actually follow through with them, don’t use scare tactics and have changed my whole perception (to a positive one!) of working for a large Partnership!
