Featured Review

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.

Former Employee - Marketing Executive

I worked at Investigo full-time for more than a year

Pros

With Investigo's open desk policy, the company is highly transparent across the whole business and with Senior Board members. Investigo are great at rewarding hard working staff who deserve... recognition with their quarterly high achievers trip abroad. Fun social culture, quarterly internal whole company events allow employees to interact outside of their initial teams. A big charity focus with multiple fundraising events organised throughout the year for all employees to participate in, which are not only so much fun but also contribute to a great cause. The support teams are fantastic in providing timely, quality support to the consultants as and when required. Fantastic marketing team who go out of their way to support consultant requests. They organise regular networking events and insights from industry experts for clients to the highest quality. Management team will provide great support in developing employees skills.

Cons

Hard to say! Although there are already a number of senior women in the business, it would be awesome to see even more senior women in the company.

Advice to Management

As the company grows, be mindful about maintaining the great culture and the open, transparent working environment.
