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

    Pros

    Great place to start a recruiting career from the beginning or refine your recruiting skills and learn from people who have been in the recruiting industries for many years! Prior to joining RW, I had 3 years of inside sales experience and found RW as a great opportunity to make a career switch into a field driven by relationships & networking in person. It gave me exposure to a wide variety of business industries,...

    Cons

    - Long hours but truly it’s a sales job (and compensated accordingly which is nice) so that’s not anything outside of what you’d expect with other similar jobs - the harder you work, the more it pays off. - It’s a bit of a learn by doing type of job, you will mess up at some point but be open to feedback with management and learn from mistakes. - Tech platforms weren't the latest and greatest as you'd expect being...

    I have been working at Robert Walters full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    1. Office Culture - we are a small but mighty Team at the moment, and the culture is really wonderful. We work hard, but it is very collaborative and team members are recognized and commended for the hard work they put in. As we continue to grow, we look for people to join the Team who have values that mirror ours, who we know are good humans and who we know we'd like to spend time with! Diversity of thought and experience...

    Cons

    1. Large Public Corporate Company - this has its' advantages and disadvantages depending on what you value and what's important to you. But my nature of our size, there are parts of the culture that are a bit more "old school" in nature. Keep in mind, this is coming from someone who came from the start-up/ entrepreneurial world. All that to say, RW US leadership is quite progressive and for the last year has been implementing...

    I have been working at Robert Walters full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Out of the companies I've worked for in the past, RW is one of the best. With the opportunities that they provide as far as learning and global mobility, it is by far an exceptional organization with a lot of room for growth. Personally, I can say that recruiting is not for everyone. As such there are some bad reviews based on their individual experience, however, if you are dedicated and focused then you will go far...

    I have been working at Robert Walters full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Excellent leadership from the President and senior managers. If you work hard and are dedicated you will be set up to succeed . Career development is promoted within the firm and the commission structure is uncapped. New employees are always given time to produce and benefit from both on the job and off the job training. The office is designed in a way where hard work and performance is rewarded and this is evident as...

    Cons

    It is hard to think of any cons really. Recruitment as an industry can be challenging but Robert Walters provides a great environment to help recruiters through tough markets.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be put off by turnover. If you dedicate yourself and work hard you will succeed in this office.

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

    Pros

    - casual work environment. It's very hard to think of any pros given how far behind this environment compared to others.

    Cons

    - no career development - boys club management team - managers care more about their billings than there team. - none existent bonus's - no collaboration or direct vision - be careful they don't sell you on false benefits

    Advice to Management

    Create more collaboration across teams so everyone can be successful and be rewarded with bonuses no just the managers.
