Featured Review

Current Employee - Manager

I have been working at Robert Walters full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

- Responded to the pandemic in phenomenal way all things considered - Able to keep everyone employed during an unprecedented time, whilst most other recruitment companies were making lay offs - In... the center of a booming market, consistent flow of business coming in from clients, new and existing - Supportive leadership with a flexible approach to the way we now work in response to the changes in demands since the pandemic - Opportunities are there if you want them, work hard and ask for what you want next, even if it can't happen right away you'll be given guidance on how you can get there - Diversity initiatives are there and you can tell there's meaningful work been put into this strategy in the past 18 months - Huge push on work life balance more so in the last 18 months than ever before - Unbeatable culture, collaborative and fun !

Cons

- For a while there was uncertainty about what the new normal would look like and took us a while to figure that out - The market is challenging at the moment with a candidate short market, so we... have to work a bit harder to close people but we're empowered to do what we need to in order to make it happen

Advice to Management

- Keep doing what you're doing and listening to your employees and you'll create an market leading team!

Consultant

I worked at PeopleSearch

Pros

Everybody has to pass the same quarterly KPI system which is common in recruitment practice.

Cons

- Horrible environment (micro-managing, no real leader, using the same old KPI system to measure success for every region without taking into account its different circumstances ) - Just want to use... people there is no mentorship no training (HR is complied by interns) - As in a money-driven business, seems like the sole goal of this company is to recruit, use and then throw people away without even compensating properly (only send out bonus when quarterly sales passing 3 times payroll cost including tax) - All the promises before hiring was never redeemed or actualized. Everybody is lying and trying to trick people including line managers and HR.

Advice to Management

If you cannot afford enough human capital then start with a smaller team. This bad recurrence of reputation will only kill the brand before it actually tries to reach the goal of using people. If... you don't have satisfied employees how do you expect to have satisfied customers.
