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

    Pros

    Great people and a lovely working environment. MD is very approachable with ‘open door’ approach. Hard working colleagues who don’t back stab each other. Good benefits and flexible working with strong tech support.

    Cons

    No office is perfect but generally issues resolved promptly.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Robert Walters full-time

    Pros

    ・first advice from your co-worker "DO NOT trust anybody" ・always kept busy working environment - no time to take a rest ・lots of companies events - and gossips are around everywhere

    Cons

    ・strong micromanagement This is a scam company! Strongly high turnover rate. About 10 to 20 new employees are recruited every month, and only 1 or 2 will stay after 3 months. If you do not survive, you will be fired instantly. - Yes, the company think you are a robot. I highly disrecommend!

    Advice to Management

    Stop being a scam.

    Pros

    Great working environment - given both autonomy to get on with work, whilst support is there if needed In-house training is of an excellent standard, really helped coming from a non-recruitment background Really good career opportunities, RW are big on internal progression and rewarding people for the work they put in. Definitely a meritocratic environment

    Pros

    Awesome colleagues, fun and team-focused work environment, weekly happy hours, and overall just a great company that cares about you, your growth, and your future!

    A few outdated and old school processes

      Entrepreneurial environment, where new ideas and approaches are encouraged. Great team environment, with incentives which help to create a fun working environment.

      Pros

      Autonomous and Mature, yet fun working environment Provide mobile phones and laptops enabling you to work from home They understand the value of building relationships with clients and candidates and give you the freedom to go ahead and do that with very few limitations

      Cons

      As with all recruitment businesses, it's longer working hours in comparison to a basic 9-5, however, time goes quickly when you're busy and you enjoy the environment you work in.
