    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).

    Cons

    The working hours are long and clearly defined. There could be a shorter working hour definition to allow for people who need to travel to and from work.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to look to identify and develop top performers not just from a billings perspective, but people who can be long term business leaders for the group. Make sure that senior management are visible and approachable to all levels of staff to ensure that staff feel that they understand and empathize with their challenges.
