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

    Pros

    Most of the systems and process are well organised and smooth. Although organising billing to clients and dealing with backend finance team can be tortuous.
    As a manager it is easy to motivate/demotivate your staff by paying them more/paying them less than they deserve in their bonus
    Decent training for staff, although most employees have previous recruitment experience
    Large numbers of staff to feed information off and big name in the market

    Cons

    Misogynist boys club
    Being "one of the boys" is viewed more highly than performance or general input to the business
    Client relationships are not very strong and PSA/SLAs are generally poorly negotiated
    Terrible staff retention and choice of new hires often very poor
    Aggressive and rude behaviour by management (and subsequently by staff) is only frowned upon
    Bonuses are rarely equivalent to what would be paid to a commission based consultant
    Generally very negative environment to work in - very very low staff motivation and happiness so very tough for managers
    Highly transaction based recruitment style

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand that treating your clients and staff so poorly will eventually mean loosing all client relationships
    Most should resign - others should go on leadership coaching courses
    Understanding recruitment without understanding business creates a transactional environment

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
