Robert Walters Melbourne Level 41, 385 Bourke Street Get Directions
I worked at Robert Walters full-time (More than a year)
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.
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.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Robert Walters (Melbourne) in January 2015.
3 stages - behavioural and social - initially had a phone screening, was asked to attend an interview with manager and associate director, then met director for second round, then had a social interview with team
