    I worked at Robert Walters full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Employed for 2 years at RW. Worked with very talented and hard working group. The managing director/president sat in the same room as we did, and therefore was always available to speak with and give great advice. He set a solid example for all to follow.

    Cons

    The only con was not RW's fault.
    The USA went into a recession and I moved on to a position with one of my clients in Real Estate in NYC.
    The money is there for the taking if you put in the effort at RW!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing all those great client events!
