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

    Pros

    A well established company with international opportunities

    Cons

    In recent years, the Singapore office has seen massive turnover at all levels and current management is poor and unpopular. The nature of the company means its a place for people to start their recruitment careers, and then move on. This is principally because its low paid both in terms of salary package and commission. The comment below that its an excellent place to work is clearly by a Manager/Director who is in denial. Morale is the worst I've ever experienced, as is turnover. There are better places you can start your recruiting career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As with the previous comment, no advice is given because nothing will change. This is an office in terminal decline.
