    Pros

    Robert Walters is a fantastic company to start your recruitment career or even join further down the line. Many people in the business are ex industry and for junior joiners there is so much opportunity to learn. Robert Walters offers an autonomous environment and the ability to quickly climb the ladder if you prove successful. You have the brand to enable you to effectively get in front of new clients and build a business...

    Cons

    At first it will feel like you are working a long day and the hours can be tiresome but it absolutely flies by and you need the time to get things done. We work very hard but also get the opportunity to meet a range of people, eat at restaurants you wouldn't normally choose and have many sporting events.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work closely with each team - keep investing in technology and ensure the working environment continues to be collaborative.

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

    Pros

    Management on the floor on most teams is good. Encourage you to get out and really get to know your market. Good offices. Very high investment in global branding and back office support functions. International opportunities.

    Cons

    They have just cut two entire divisions including some very good staff because they weren't profitable and handled it awfully. Rolled everyone out at a monthly divisional meeting and just wiped them out. Very poor senior management. Can't retain good billers. They just move on elsewhere as the salaries are higher and bonuses more lucrative. Bonus scheme is terrible. In my 3 years here only ever seen the senior management...

    Advice to Management

    Look after your key staff better. Mix up senior management. Innovate. Buy people who are good back. Fix your bonus structure.

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

    Pros

    Great team-based environment, non-KPI/Sales driven so you're not forced to reach X number of hours on the phone, instead there's a focus on quality service, strong candidates and long-term client relations which really shows in your daily activity. Good incentives including monthly and quarterly days out, very social work environment.

    Cons

    It's recruitment so there will still be elements of cold-calling clients to business develop. Dealing with incompetent HR can also be a nightmare.

    Advice to Management

    Doing well with a good focus on incentives, pay could definitely be higher to compensate for lack of commission structure

    I have been working at Robert Walters full-time

    Pros

    Great salary and compensation schemes. Great people mostly. Good progression. Good perks. Management actually care and listen and feedback.

    Cons

    The environment can be very cliquey, and there are some very pretentious members of staff as well as those who are extremely loud/look down on people.

    Advice to Management

    Try to ensure people are working equally as hard, and try to discourage the overly pretentious nature. Humility is, well. Amazing.
