    I worked at Robert Walters full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good on the job training, positive and team focused environment, fantastically well resourced company giving you the best opportunity for success. Great incentives for high achievers.

    Cons

    Consistently under pressure to meet very high KPIs and targets, results in long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Move away from the outdated boys club environment. Support and promote more women to senior positions.

    I have been working at Robert Walters full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Robert Walters offers a great environment that allows for a productive and collegiate workplace. They are very supportive and can provide resources to allow you to focus on the work at hand and build relationships. RW is also getting much better about flexibility and benefits.

    Cons

    It is a large organization so can take a while to figure out how to best navigate and utilize the existing relationships. Additionally, they can do more to lower their environmental footprint.

    Pros

    Encourage to be out of the office networking and meeting with clients and candidates

    Cons

    Hours can be a bit tedious (08:30 - 18:00). 09:00 would be a better start.

    Former Employee - Consultant in London, England

    I worked at Robert Walters full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some strong recruiters in the business to learn from. Managers are well looked after as they pretty much decide they're in charge of the team bonus pot, which includes their own bonus

    Cons

    High staff turnover, they take on people with no experience because they're cheap and wait for them to figure out themselves if recruitment is for them. The "discretionary bonus" system is a complete cheat, you'd earn more in commission from literally any other agency, however Walters does provide a soft entry into recruitment.

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

    Pros

    Great working environment - given both autonomy to get on with work, whilst support is there if needed In-house training is of an excellent standard, really helped coming from a non-recruitment background Really good career opportunities, RW are big on internal progression and rewarding people for the work they put in. Definitely a meritocratic environment

    Cons

    As per all recruitment agencies, the hours can be long

    - Very good training from start to finish of your time there. Always available when needed/requested at all levels. - Management is always there when you need help or guidance while also giving you responsibility to run your own desk. - People at the company are friendly and welcoming while a team ethos is encouraged making the environment a lovely place to work. - Creativity is encouraged in trying new things to succeed.

    Long working hours but that comes with Recruitment as a whole. New systems are being put in place which causes IT malfunctions from time to time.

    Keep giving flexibility in terms of work life balance.
