    I worked at Robert Walters full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people and a lovely working environment. MD is very approachable with ‘open door’ approach. Hard working colleagues who don’t back stab each other. Good benefits and flexible working with strong tech support.

    Cons

    No office is perfect but generally issues resolved promptly.

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

    Pros

    Motivated colleagues who are driven to build their careers. Highly intensive work environment, but will be great if you are motivated to learn the following business skills: contract execution, deal execution, client negotiation, business development, relationship building, sales. Supportive internal training programmes to help you achieve what you want to achieve in your career here.

    Cons

    Number intensive. KPI driven so you will be under constant pressure to achieve this.

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

    Pros

    -Able to make a lot of money quickly (If you put in the effort) -Pretty relaxed work environment (Besides dress code..) - Expensed dinners/lunches with clients and candidates at really nice restaurants

    Cons

    -The job is really repetitive (Call/email people about jobs..that's 80% of your job) -Can be pretty high pressure/stressful environment -The team you end up on really affects your work environment and style. Some managers are really cool and let you do your own thing (As long as you make enough money), but some can be really strict and micro-manage. You should definitely ask your potential managers what their management style is like. -Have to wear suits everyday (If you're a guy).

    Advice to Management

    Don't make people wear suits everyday..pretty old-school.

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

    Pros

    The company invests in their people seriously. Managers are great at least the one I'm working with. Not transactional and a very team based working environment. That's the best part as everyone is helping you and vice versa.

    Cons

    Not any as such. Just needs to be more open to work life balance culture and bring in slightly more mature employees

    Advice to Management

    Continue being this way with slight improvements to be the best place to be

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Robert Walters full-time

    Pros

    ・first advice from your co-worker "DO NOT trust anybody" ・always kept busy working environment - no time to take a rest ・lots of companies events - and gossips are around everywhere

    Cons

    ・strong micromanagement This is a scam company! Strongly high turnover rate. About 10 to 20 new employees are recruited every month, and only 1 or 2 will stay after 3 months. If you do not survive, you will be fired instantly. - Yes, the company think you are a robot. I highly disrecommend!

    Advice to Management

    Stop being a scam.
