Pros

  • Pleasant colleagues make the working environment friendly and enjoyable
  • Frequent opportunities to work on high profile, prestigious projects
  • Knight Frank encourages graduates to work abroad at some point
  • Lots of career progression opportunities - many of the company's equity partners started out as graduates

Cons

  • Graduates do not have a lot of choice over which rotations they get
  • The competencies necessary for progression are not always made clear
  • You may find yourself spending 6 months in a rotation that you don't enjoy
  • Diversity is a little lacking at present but they are working on this
