    Thank you for your review. I’m glad you’ve enjoyed our fast-paced culture, and, indeed, we’re proud to offer industry-leading training to all our people. That said, your comments about our culture are disappointing — it’s true that, at our core, we’re a sales organisation and we set high expectations for our team, but I’m also committed to offering our people a fun and supportive environment where they can do their best work. I’m more than happy to set up a confidential conversation if you’d like to discuss your comments or concerns in more detail—feel free to email me at jeremy.sampson@robertwalters.co.jp.

    Thank you for your review. The flexibility we offer our employees is just one way that we’re committed to supporting their health and wellbeing, so I’m troubled to read that you don’t agree. It’s important to me that our behaviours reflect our company principles, and so I’d appreciate getting some further details about your experience — if you like, you can email me at monty.sujanani@robertwalters.com.sg to set up a confidential discussion.
