    Pros

    I joined the business as a very green graduate not sure what I wanted to do and 100% feel that I have landed on my feet here in RW. The support you receive from fellow team members and management is fantastic and your ideas are encouraged and developed. The sky is your limit in RW and as long as you work hard you are rewarded. I would highly recommend RW as a business and am very happy here! Recruitment isn't easy, it's hard slog, long hours and things don't always go your way but if you are willing to put in the graft, RW Dublin is a great place to work!

    Cons

    Sometimes people forget how lucky we are to work in such a great environment..not every agency is as supportive.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing! Continue to encourage and develop new starters and build strong teams. We are lucky to work in such a fantastic place!

    Pros

    Lovely place to work, I can talk to 98% of the company about anything and everything - which is great for office-wide banter and the overall atmosphere of the place.
    They train everyone with the same tools so it is up to you how well you do and if you're working hard and actually trying you can do well.
    They are always supportive for any questions or problems you might have. Which is handy if you're brand new to recruitment and unsure of what it is you're actually meant to be doing.
    Long-Term viewing: great place to grow a career, they want you to stay and become successful.
    If you are thinking about recruitment this company is the best of the best. It promotes working with as opposed to against your colleagues and follows through with it's calibre of employee. This doesn't necessarily mean you like every single person in the office but if you like 9/10 people you work with, that's a good place to be!

    Cons

    Long hours - 8:30 to 6pm which can be gruelling some days but when you actually like the workplace it feels a lot shorter!
    Fast-Paced- you will be busy. This is not a job where you can pass the day playing solitaire on your computer or having 30 minute 'tea breaks', you will constantly be emailing or on the phone while running to a meeting but the variety of everyday will really make you end every day feeling accomplished.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
    Highlighting everyone's good work on Friday wrap-ups really makes all the hard work worth it!
