    I have been working at Robert Walters full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I had heard mixed things about Robert Walters as a global recruitment business. But the San Francisco office is fantastic.

    -Really good training
    -Partnered with VC companies to give great clients
    -High performing office
    -Great incentives and clear structure
    -Nice view of the Bay Bridge.
    -Great people.
    -Mac books
    -Quarterly parties/events.
    -Clear promotion targets
    -A company that is actually global. I have worked for big international companies before and they are not a unit, Robert Walters is. You will have opportunities to relocate internationally if you do well for 2 years.
    - Experienced leadership who guide you every step of the way.

    Cons

    There is nothing I could say here that would not sound a bit petty given all the pros. Yes it would be nice to not always start at 9am on the dot and be good to be able to check personal email on the work computers. But in the grand scheme of things I can not really fault the place.

    We don't have all the thrills of some of our tech company clients, but they have built a solid environment here.

    I worked at Robert Walters (More than a year)

    Pros

    The founder and the President of RW NY (KK) is a great manager, always here to help, encourage and bring new ideas.
    The team is international and really good at what they do, always in a good mood.
    The office itself is amazing and the possibilities to grow are real.

    Cons

    According to me, the only Cons is that RW is a British listed company... but it is also a worldwide leader! You can't get everything ;)

    Advice to Management

    The Management is doing great for more than 15 years and for sure it will last for long!

    Pros

    The business has so much growth potential and so to join at this time couldn't be better!
    The team profit share creates a very collaborative environment making it an immediately welcoming workforce to enter in to. There is a good feel for flexibility and some really strong billers to learn from. It will be a challenge but one I'm very much looking forward to succeeding in. Offices are pretty spectacular too!

    Cons

    Working in Times Square means buying lunch out each day can become expensive so it's a good idea to be disciplined enough sometimes to bring your own food in!

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to ask current employees for feedback and keep evolving!

    I worked at Robert Walters full-time

    Pros

    Great team of people, global opportunities available.

    Cons

    KPI driven, highly competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Encouragement and positive reinforcement goes a long way. Managers should focus on their team not their individual billing.

    Pros

    Great company culture, excellent training, quality systems in comparison to most competitors.

    Difficulty balancing administrative tasks with production responsibilities.

    Stronger support for top producers would lead to more time spent on production vs administration.

    I worked at Robert Walters full-time

    Pros

    Strong corporate infrastructure and training/support of those entering the recruitment industry. Good brand recognition in many markets. Diverse industry coverage. Opportunity for career advancement likely, though not within the organization.

    Cons

    Once past the 'novice/beginner' level, the 'intermediate' level can be quite tedious in terms of challenge/reward for those looking to make a career there. Performance metrics tend to focus too much on actions even when achieving strong results. Can be good for those who need micro management but not for those who don't.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation could be less opaque.
