    Pros

    Fantastic system to track client and candidate records, great name in the market, good team work spirit. Everyone has their specialty by function.

    Cons

    Too many KPI's to follow and track which means working longer hours. Salaries are rarely reviewed and not commission-based, meaning that bonuses are at management's discretion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it a less stressful environment by slacking a bit on the KPI's - we're all human.

    Pros

    - International network and mobility. I started in Tokyo then had the chance to open a brand new office in San Francisco after being with the company for 6yrs. In my 9yrs here, I've spent time working and training in Singapore, Hong Kong, Sydney, London, New York and have attended incentive trips in Vegas, Sth Africa, Bali and Guam.
    - Company looks after high performers very well and values them highly
    - Guaranteed base salaries that increase as you progress upwardly through the company . They are unsurpassed in the industry
    - Great culture and a really fun bunch of people to work with
    - Large company with strong brand name makes it easier to bring on top tier clients

    Cons

    - There are a lot of teams, divisions and branches inside of Robert Walters which also means that there are many micro-cultures. Make sure that your personality/work style fits that of your team members. It varies across branches.
    - As with any recruitment firm, or for that matter, most sales jobs, it's hard work with many ups and downs. The rewards are big for those who are willing to go the extra mile and can ride through the tough times.
