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

    Pros

    The company invests in their people seriously. Managers are great at least the one I'm working with. Not transactional and a very team based working environment. That's the best part as everyone is helping you and vice versa.

    Cons

    Not any as such. Just needs to be more open to work life balance culture and bring in slightly more mature employees

    Advice to Management

    Continue being this way with slight improvements to be the best place to be

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

    Pros

    Excellent training Great team culture Supportive environment

    Cons

    Lack of career progression Long hours - unhealthy work life balance Traditional recruitment style

    Advice to Management

    Overall a great place to start your career, it definitely suits a certain type of person. Management need to focus on career development for their existing staff, move them around and expose them to different areas of the business if they ask for it, don't keep them in their industry sector and expect them to perform well, listen to your staff and their needs. Get rid of the old school mentality of being chained to the desk from 8am - 6pm and also get rid of the ridiculous KPI's. You are losing good people because they feel like they are not developing or growing in their career. Keep up the great training, positive working culture and continue to change as a business. Continue to support managers to look after their staff and if you reward people effectively they will put in the effort ten fold.

    Pros

    Team culture and environment, superb training, lovely working atmosphere and great people. Work life balance - flexible approach to working.

    Cons

    Others may think team based bonus to be a 'Con' but it encourages people to work together which sets RW aside from other recruiters in London.
