    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 for, and stay at RW for the long term and that is replicated with success and potential career progression across the board. On a site level, the ethos that has been in operation in Birmingham over the last few years and the plan for the future is something that any consultant will be able to buy into. Autonomous working - you are not micromanaged, expectations are there but if you are driven and self-motivated as you should be in recruitment you will succeed.

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

    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.

    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.
