WinterWyman – Why Work For Us?


Whether the job market is booming or busting, WinterWyman has been recruiting top talent for our clients over the past 40+ years. In good times, that means finding leaders and specialized talent who may not be looking for new opportunities. In down times, it’s matching the right person with the right job so a critical hiring mistake doesn’t compromise a business. No matter the economic conditions, WinterWyman has become the career partner for organizations, powerhouses and start-ups across the Northeast because of the quality of our candidates and the strength of our reputation. 

We specialize in providing contract staffing, contingency search and executive search services in the areas of Accounting & Finance, Human Resources and Technology with a heavy concentration in New England and Metropolitan New York.

How we do business

As a talent acquisition firm, client companies pay us to fill open roles with candidates who meet the present qualified requirements and are the right cultural fit for the organization. Our strength is in identifying - and recruiting - the best candidates for the job. Because of our vast network, industry knowledge, proprietary database and proactive sourcing technologies, we can produce candidates far superior to those sourced by other methods.

What sets WinterWyman apart from other firms is the caliber of our staff. Our employees are tenacious and strategic recruiters and search consultants with a hunger for helping our clients find the perfect talent. They come from a variety of backgrounds and thrive in a fast moving, team –focused environment. It’s no surprise that the average length of tenure for our employees is seven-plus years. Our team members enjoy coming to work every day and we are proud of the work they accomplish.

We help others with one of the most important aspects of their lives – their careers. We recognize that our reputation is our product, and our actions and behavior add or detract from it. While ours is a serious business, we try not to take ourselves too seriously. We enjoy a strong camaraderie and love to have fun. This isn’t a “dog-eat-dog” atmosphere; we take ownership of the morale of the company and try to bring out the best in each other.

Recruiting can be a tough career, and we realize that. That’s why we hold signature events each year like our employee golf tournament, holiday party and summer outing. In addition to the weekly community service events we participate in (see “Giving Back”), we’ve also enjoyed Office Olympics, corn hole tournaments, scavenger hunts, corporate runs, cook-offs, dress-up days, ski nights and sporting events like Red Sox, Bruins and Celtics games.

Additionally, we have a robust wellness program which features health clinics, fitness challenges, monthly educational workshops, healthy cooking and cleansing demonstrations and on-site yoga.

Our employees come from a variety of backgrounds and thrive in an atmosphere that offers extensive training and development, outstanding earning potential, a commitment to community service and a dedication to providing best in class services. Led by a senior leadership team with an average of 18 years with the company, the median tenure for our employees is more than seven years.

It’s not at every company where you can walk into the CEO’s office and pitch your idea. Here, we welcome it. In fact, last year we implemented a Think Tank initiative where all employees with less than two years of experience at WinterWyman were divided into small groups and were asked to think, strategize and present to executive management their ideas on how to improve our organization. While some of these ideas are currently in motion, others have already been implemented.

Here, our rookies learn from our veterans and vice versa. While our training and development program is robust and ongoing so new hires can dive in with two feet and learn the business, our veterans are learning from our recent college grads how to be more work efficient and how technology can improve our clients’ and candidates’ experiences and interactions with us.

More than 90 percent of our employees participate in company-sponsored community service activities and programs during work and personal time. That’s because it’s part of our corporate charter to give back.

We believe that companies, like individuals, must assume their share of responsibility as local and global citizens. Our employees have been fortunate in their careers and educational opportunities and we feel strongly that we have the obligation to give back. Our Director of Community Development oversees all volunteer services, committee activities and donations. Some of the organizations we have supported through community service projects and donations include:

American Cancer Society / Hope LodgeCystic Fibrosis Foundation
Birthday WishesFranciscan Hospital for Children
Boys and Girls Club Junior Achievement
Charles River ConservancyMultiple Sclerosis Society
Comfort Zone CampRosie’s Place
Cradles to CrayonsSpecial Olympics

Since 1972, it has and continues to be our sole mission to be the premier talent acquisition firm in the Northeast markets we serve. Clients and candidates continue to view us as trusted advisors who listen to their needs and consistently make matches that endure.

    I have been working at WinterWyman full-time (More than 8 years)


    - Organized onboarding for new-hires and existing staff
    - Transparency throughout the firm
    - Competitive Compensation Structure for sales staff
    - Fun committee, Community development committee, Health & Wellness Committee -- they have it all!
    - Above average tenure within the staffing agency
    - Lots of room to grow and be challenged
    - Executive team has an open door policy


    - 401k and benefits are average. Wish this could be more competitive or the company would explore different alternative plans where we don't fail the 401K testing each year for HCE.
    - Recruiting is a hard business, so the people who tend to turnover do so before 2 years because staffing isn't right for them.
    - PTO maxes at 4 weeks after 5 years. Would recommend adding an extra week after additional time.
    - No equity as part of the compensation plan. The company only has profit sharing that's very minimal for sales staff.
