    I have been working at Robert Walters as an intern for 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 ManagementAdvice

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

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

    Pros

    -Good training
    -Nice team environment
    -Smart co-workers
    -Better long term career prospects than other recruiting firms

    Cons

    -Can be a bit stressful....but that can be said for any sales job.
    -Although it depends on the team and the office, the environment can be very KPI driven with a surprising amount of micromanagement. Sometimes you will find people scrambling more to hit their KPIs than to bring in revenue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep hiring the right people!
