    Former Employee - Human Resources/Payroll Positions in Boston, MA

    I worked at WinterWyman as a contractor (more than an year)

    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.

    I worked at WinterWyman full-time (more than an year)

    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.

    I would not recommend working for this agency, as they do not provide any benefits or health insurance.

    I worked at WinterWyman as a contractor (less than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Great people, great culture. WW understands that a happy employee is more profitable than an unhappy employee and does their best to make sure that everyone, both senior and junior, has the opportunity for a good work/life balance. The CEO is outstanding. He addresses everyone by name and takes a genuine interest in how you're doing, even if you've only been there for a few days.

    Cons

    The training program is good, but could use some work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management is excellent. Newly promoted managers could receive a little more guidance on how to manage their team and their own desk simultaneously.

    The only real con is that most of their assignments are temporary.

    Winter Wyman is an excellent placement company with a wide range of clientele. I had no issues whatsoever getting multiple interviews and was placed right away. The recruiters really go to bat for the contractors and I had a very positive placement experience.
