    I have been working at Robert Walters as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good staff welfare benefits. Free food on Fridays afternoon. Constant supply of hot and cold drinks and fruits too. Friendly people.

    Cons

    High level of stress to meet sales target for the consultants. High turnover staff rate? Usually consultants leave the company to join a competitor or to do in house HR.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to retain staff. High turnover rate affects moral.
