Limited opportunities

The job was OK , Limited growth potential. Company in transition that needs more growth to improve the opportunities for all. Management was easy to work with.

NY centric

Very smart company. Dedicated to growth and platform. Some favoritism internally. May not be good fit for everyone. Can also be competitive & cutthroat at times.

Appreciate the flexible/remote schedule

Overworked and under appreciated. Compensation and bonuses are not great. I have learned a lot from great coworkers and mentors. I have had experience with both fantastic management and poor management.

Do not work in HR in Irvine.

Very toxic environment, everyone is in it for themselves and HR does not defend its employees. The structure as well is horrible, avoid at all costs. You either have to be family or friends in order to make it up the ladder. Please find something else and do not work here for the benefit of your career.

Totally Disfunctional Company

They never provided guidance on targets, changed management every 6 months, and their method of hitting targets by senior management was to eliminate positions. The current management will receive bonuses, while others are found without a job, because they have no idea on how to run the business. My recommendation would be to leave the company or never go to work for such a place. I wish that I had known how disfunctional the company was prior to joining.

Typical corporate dysfunction

Was recommended through employee referral. Direct manager was decent but upper management could care less about team members. Direct manager quit and was replaced with an new manager that has a vendetta against anyone who doesn't agree with him. He was out to ruin anyone's life that got in his way and made it his personal agenda to destroy him/her. Work became very harassing and hostile environment. NKF is not a bad company but it pales in comparison to its competitors.

A growing company with some challenges

Newmark was a great company but suffered quite a few challenges stemming from its rapid growth acquisitions and spin-offs. Management shuffles led to significant staff cuts unrelated to job performance.

Back End Engineer

If you are lucky you get a 5% raise along with a bonus in the form of RSU. Working hard and proving yourself doesn't lead to higher salary or promotions of any kind.

Great job company to work with

This company was great to work with and had an amazing experience although due to recent layoffs I was let go. Company was friendly and great to work with.

Lots of potential and good people

Company cares about the clients needs and tries to do a good job. Not enough resources to go around. You have to be really dedicated and put yourself out there, with lots of anxiety you may fail and little help.

Productive workplace

Current work hours are suitable but will be changing for the worst. Change in management is currently having an adverse affect on many employees because of the proposed schedule changes with no consideration of employees input or concerns.

While the job itself was fairly easy, the culture here was a killer. The manager played favorites and would lie directly to your face. I even spoke with HR about several people and was told "yeah, we've had an issue with this employee for a while".. how it that acceptable? The only good part was the time off being paid, otherwise, unless you want to be degraded on a daily basis, avoid this place.

Account Manager needs to adjust better

The account manager made it difficult to enjoy coming into the office and completing task by specified deadlines. She was very offensive with her negative language when asking necessary questions to complete task originated and assigned by here.

Lease Abstractor dept was like family

I was at the company for almost 10 years and this was the most fun I had of any job. Teamwork, support, relaxed, and not just my department it was across all departments. Sorry they laid off my dept and subsequent departments and restructured the whole company.

When I joined NKF I thought the organization had a mature Strategic Planning organization. At the time they were almost a start-up. However, their vision was a great one.




Instability at that time

Just another toxic male-dominated culture workplace

Brokers talk crudely about other brokers every day. There's a lack of respect for the salary employees, they are just treated as robots and the brokers always think their own work is top priority. Brokers will visibly throw tantrums / yell at people on the phone. You are judged only by what you can produce. The company is at your beck and call if you produce high commissions, and will overlook bad behaviors. They have too much at stake. Hours can get long. Benefits are not good. Company is just doing ok - stay a max of two years. There's no career advancement.


coworkers are nice
