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

    Pros

    A collaborative and friendly atmosphere within the office as well as an expansive client pool and database offers an excellent opportunity for any Consultant to succeed as long as they put in the hard work.

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

    Pros

    With over 8 years in recruitment Robert Walters has been a surprising breath of fresh air! Behind it's corporate image is a business that supports you and allows you to run your desk as you see fit. No KPI stick, no core hours, but the flexibility and autonomy to build long lasting relationships with candidates and clients alike.

    Cons

    In an environment that encourages autonomy you need to be extremely self-motivated so someone who is reliant on strict structure and direction may struggle.

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

    Pros

    *Training *Team spirit *Support from managers *Clear targets

    Cons

    *Fast pace can be tricky for some people *Sometimes too much KPI oriented culture

    Advice to Management

    Pay managers for leading the team, not for both: Being a consultant and leading a team. Possibly managers are too busy to properly concentrate on leading their team.
