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

    Pros

    Great Team spirit, Flexible working and incredible Client base. People very friendly and a lot of very senior Consultants who have a great network and Industry experience. Have hired some excellent people in the past 6 months who are very quality driven and genuinely care about the levels of service and quality of work. Crossover between Walters People and Robert Walters is great - lots of cross selling. Management... team is really strong, with great reputation.

    Cons

    Coming from an Industry background, it takes time getting used to the highs and lows - you can control the process as well as possible but still you may not get the result you need. However a lot of support is given to new starters with really good training program, so expect this will even out over time !

    Advice to Management

    Keep your levels of enthusiasm - it is great to work in a place where everyone wants to see you succeed !

    Pros

    Good training, autonomy and genuine people.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of change which has impacted the environment. To compensate, management are taking on too much work and not delegating.

    Advice to Management

    Take a step back, hire experienced professionals and delegate. Invest, grow and value the talent you have.
