    I have been working at Robert Walters full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Genuine belief in building relationships with clients Teamwork mentality Always looking for the best ways to train consultants and managers Encourage ideas that will help you build your business Recruitment treated as a career rather than a sales job Great seminars and panel based events to invite clients too Excellent white papers, salary guides and market intelligence information for clients

    Cons

    Can be a little risk averse to technology/businesses that is untried (new, recently set up) however they're adapting quickly Could be better interoffice communications Interview process can be a little long though they do want to make sure you get the best opportunity and with several disciplines this can be hard

    Advice to Management

    Continue the good work to improve the working lifestyle of the consultants Continue to ask the employees for their input when launching new products Make sure that everyone within the group of companies are aware of each other (RW/RS).

    I have been working at Robert Walters full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    A collaborative and friendly atmosphere within the office as well as an expansive client pool and database offers an excellent opportunity for any Consultant to succeed as long as they put in the hard work. Having worked for two other agencies previously I would recommend RW as leaps and bounds ahead of what I have worked within previously in all areas of the business. There is a clear reason that people work...

    Pros

    With over 8 years in recruitment Robert Walters has been a surprising breath of fresh air! Behind it's corporate image is a business that supports you and allows you to run your desk as you see fit. No KPI stick, no core hours, but the flexibility and autonomy to build long lasting relationships with candidates and clients alike.

    Cons

    In an environment that encourages autonomy you need to be extremely self-motivated so someone who is reliant on strict structure and direction may struggle.
