    Great team

    Consultant (Current Employee)
    Wellesley, MA

    ProsEverybody is serious about their careers. People work hard but they everybody helps each other out, We all play hard and their are no clicks. Management is very open to input, even from the newer employees. You will learn how to do things the right way. People with bad attitudes do not last. There are no office politics just do your job.

    ConsWhen you first join you will be surprised how direct people are with each other. There is no excuse making. If you don't like being introspective about your performance the meetings can be uncomfortable. Once you get used to the directness you will find it very helpful.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe focus on culture has been very helpful. Don't take you eye off the ball.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The culture is outstanding and the company has a great reputation in the markets they serve

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Wellesley, MA

    ProsThis is a great environment for a driven, hungry sales personality. The leadership group, especially the owner, is terrific and they put a great deal of effort into making people successful. The business ethics here are second to none and that comes from the top. There are always incentives and rewards in the form of dinners and company trips that are rare for this industry.

    ConsRecruiting is a tough business......this company does it's best to help people succeed, but ultimately there will be bumps in the road. If someone is not self-motivated and a hard worker, this will not be the right place for them.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great Company, Friendly People, Room for Advancement

    Recruiter (Current Employee)
    Wellesley, MA

    ProsYou will be recognized and rewarded if you're motivated, driven, and work hard. The people are very friendly and helpful, good culture, lots of flexibility. They provide an environment where what you put in is what you get out so there's the freedom to move at your own pace. Good for those who want to succeed quickly but not for those who want to just coast. Management works with everyone daily, If you have an issue or new idea you can address them.

    ConsPeople often have a lot of their plates. A lot is expected. This is good and bad, no shortage of work but sometimes spread thin.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMany types of people can succeed there, they could open up a little, take a chance on people versus erring on the side of caution.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good People, Great Place

    Contractor (Current Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsEasy-going, professional. They will definitely work with their contractors to keep them happy, within the constraints imposed by the contract with whatever company you are placed at.

    ConsSome things sometimes slip through the cracks. Simple things sometimes get overlooked. There sometimes is a little more attention paid to the bottom line than to the personal needs of employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCheck in with your contractors and consultants more often. "No news" is not always "good news" and often a remote employee is reluctant to make waves for fear of teh reprecussions, wither to the employee or to one of the companies involved.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
