    Pros

    The new offices are beautiful. There is an opportunity to participate in Community Development projects of all types. Had the opportunity to work with some really wonderful people.

    Cons

    For a firm that often tries to avoid the Human Resources departments of their clients, they've built an in-house HR department that seems to make decisions that far exceed their abilities.

    Advice to Management

    The amount of revenue that someone generates isn't always the best indicator management ability. Worry less about being on the "Best Places to Work" list and worry more about being one of the best places to work.

    Pros

    I've had experience with two career counselors there and both really listened to what my career needs were and placed me in positions that were a good fit for my experience. They were also responsive even when I declined positions and continued to keep me in mind.

    Cons

    Some of the jobs entailed quite a commute.

    Pros

    Fantastic managerial support, great new office in Waltham, fun atmosphere. Incredibly difficult industry but gives you great experience, and probably the best company, overall, in the market. While the nature of the work is quite routine and mundane, having a supportive and eclectic team behind you makes it bearable.

    Cons

    True sales job, pounding the phones, volume is king.

    Pros

    was placed quickly in a job

    Cons

    I feel that I was mislead about the temporary position that I accepted. I was lead to believe that it could turn into a permanent role. It never turned out to be a permanent role, even after 1 year of working really hard. The company I was placed with had no intentions on bring on another permanent employee.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with who you place with your clients what you should really expect.

    People are very friendly, everyone wants you to succeed, great work/life balance. Management is very down to earth. Company has a great reputation in the Boston/Northeast area.

    Pay could be a little better when starting out but it is a recruiting firm so you have to make your own way.
