Over-stressed staff

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Countrywide takes their staff for granted. Staff leave and they never replace them, instead you are expected to take on their workload. Bonuses are poor and haven't been given for the last two years due to poor company performance.

Pros

Some great people.

Cons

Poor management, poor (no) bonuses, no sense of direction, too many bosses, the tails wags the dog.

Training ground for estate agents

You couldn’t start your estate agency career anywhere better! Listen, learn, workHard and then the world is your oyster! Yes it’s long hours and hard work but you will be recognised when you achieve

Good, supportive company culture

Good company with great management, good prospects of moving forward. All problems get addressed in the first instance, so staff can focus just on doing what they are meant to.

Mentally draining and utterly soul destroying

Management have a do as I say not as I do attitude. Staff are treated like infants and micro managed. Forget trying to get a day annual leave approved. If you are not in favour you won't get it. Poisonous, poorly paid and worst place I have ever worked. Do not work here

A Joke

They are a joke to work for. There is no logic to how the MD's operate and communicate. Long unnecessary regular conference calls. These are done as a tick box exercise and the focus is on achieving a pledge given at the start of the week which rarely reflects budget targets- so praise is given to achieving a pledge even though the pledge was lower than the budget figure needed. Complicated and long winded processes designed to make the job harder

Not secure

The Company went through so much change, most I’ll guided. Management decisions at exec level were poor and resulted in poor organisational performance and low motivation throughout

Pros

People

Cons

Not secure, poor morale, no engagement from exec

Fantastic Office Environment & Co-workers

A typical day would include completing all administrative tasks, assisting in processing lets for the month, quoting and selling insurance policies, qualifying clients in accordance with the company's criteria, finally, business and lead generation.

Pros

Great Location
