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

    Pros

    - casual work environment. It's very hard to think of any pros given how far behind this environment compared to others.

    Cons

    - no career development - boys club management team - managers care more about their billings than there team. - none existent bonus's - no collaboration or direct vision - be careful they don't sell you on false benefits

    Advice to Management

    Create more collaboration across teams so everyone can be successful and be rewarded with bonuses no just the managers.

    Pros

    - Good work-life balance - Fun working environment - Great career progression Senior managers do their best to communicate and stay connected using different incentives – witty encouragement emails, an open door policy to speak freely about suggestions, more paid vacations days than market average, and fully stocked kitchen with fresh fruits and drinks. They are not going to hold your hand every time something...

    I worked at Robert Walters

    Pros

    Great management who cares about the staff and works hard daily to develop them. Cordial, fun work environment. Every day was a fun, new experience. Learnings and best practices are shared freely by all senior staff and leadership through both formal meetings and ad hoc gudance. The perfect place for a new recruiter just starting out or a seasoned pro looking to up their game or mentor the next generation.

    Cons

    Sales can be a tough racket. This is not for everyone but if you have the drive and the passion, the leader of this firm's NY office will make it his mission to get you to be the best you can be.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. I miss my days there immensely and wish you all the best.
