Featured Review

Current Employee - Senior Consultant

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

Pros

Great training and development culture

Cons

Not many, the work can be challenging but that's a positive.

Former Employee - Senior Consultant

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

Pros

I was a Senior Consultant in the Melbourne Office. Overall excellent culture, people and team. The friends you make there will be friends for life. Structure and best practice habit... development, legacy accounts, brand name. Ability to build a genuine career for yourself and earn a 6 figure salary within 1-2 years. Excellent Director in charge (Melbourne) that genuinely cares for his staff.

Cons

Similar to big 4 in terms of progression timing which is discretionary, bonus are discretionary (but fair). When you start billing higher numbers the bonuses start becoming less and less... competitive, however for 90% of consultants the bonus structure will actually benefit you in comparison to peers. Can be smoke and mirrors for progression opportunities, often it is down to timing and 'waiting' for the right progression slot to open up.

Advice to Management

Provide better pathways for people and opportunities to develop them after 12 months. You've lost so many great consultants to competitors due to little things like not being able to provide a... straight answer for progression opportunities or compromising with negotiations as opposed to not coming to the table at all. Don't burn bridges when people leave the business, wish them well and keep the relationship.
