Looking for work in creative services? 52LTD is the only talent agency you need.May 22, 2018 - Anonymous FreelancerRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
A lot of companies talk about building a culture on a bedrock of human-centric values. Few ever live to do it. 52 broke the mold for me. Acumen meets empathy, jumps into a hotrod of grace. These people know how to land you a great job in a town that has nepotistic tendencies. 52 has spent a long time (a decade, two decades—I don't know, but a while) establishing a network of trust. They vet for quality. They're careful with their placements. They genuinely care about you as a candidate and a person. They want the right fit. Because that's the business model—a lot of PDX hiring managers once found work via 52. Whether you're new to town or can still remember when the Pearl was a smoldering ruin, hit up the good people of 52. You won't regret it. Ask for Jen Hecht, Alexis Dane, or Mary Blalock. They're the greatest!

Unmatchable care and attention to the recruiting processSep 14, 2018 - Community Manager in Portland, ORRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
When I was initially recruited, there was immediate transparency about logistics and a deep level of connection with the recruiter during our phone screening about the role at hand. Fast forward two weeks and everyone working at 52 Limited helped onboard my current team and I with incredible grace, intelligence and attention to detail! If you are looking for creative roles or a new opportunity, please look no further than 52 Limited. They are generous with their time, information and do so with a fun-loving and refreshing sense of humor. I am very grateful for the experience I was given at my current job and very much have them to thank for the beginning stages.
Truly, there are no cons.Continue reading

Great staff, great gigs — highly recommend.Apr 27, 2017 - Graphic Designer in Portland, ORRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
The folks at 52 limited made entering into the world of contracting in Portland very simple and straightforward. I felt as though I was always had someone in my court looking out for me, wanting me to succeed at all costs. They helped me through getting health insurance and made sure I always in the know about my contract was going with regular check-ins. Priceless experience to say the least. 10/10 would use again!
This isn't necessarily something that 52 Ltd has control over, but knowing when contract extensions are going to happen can sometimes feel like last minute. I know this is often on the company that is doing the contracting, but that particular experience wears on freelancers in general. However, folks at 52 were very good at chiming in as soon as any information was known.
Thank you for the kind words... connecting creatives & technologists with worthwhile work is our raison d'etre! Contract extensions are nice, but you're right that the communication timeline is sometimes abrupt. We'll keep looking for ways to smooth out that little bump :)

Fantastic Employer!Jan 19, 2016 - Anonymous ContractorRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Working with 52 Limited has been an outstanding experience. From day one, it has felt as though I've had the ultimate support team on my side while looking for a new career opportunity. They are personable and friendly; responsive and organized. Mary Blalock found a job for me right away that is a perfect fit. I couldn't be happier! Thanks so much for all your help!
No cons come to mind. This is the first agency I've worked through and it stands up to everything I hoped it would be. The job market in Portland is a tough one. It is incredibly helpful to have a company like 52 Limited in your corner.Continue reading

Best Staffing Company I've Ever Worked WithDec 3, 2017 - Anonymous Employee in Portland, ORRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
The talent manager with whom I work is super helpful, friendly, and quick to respond. Even early in the application process, I felt like I was working with a friend who was truly on my side. She gave me some tips to make my resume read better and did a fantastic job of keeping an open line of communication. Even now that I've been placed, she keeps in touch to make sure things are going well and that I'm getting the support I need. This seems to be the theme at 52 Ltd. The Talent Experience Manager has made everything super easy and responds incredibly fast to any questions. I have been recommending 52 Ltd to all my friends looking for a change.
I honestly have nothing bad to say.Continue reading
