    I have been working at 52 Limited for more than a year

    Pros

    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...

    I have been working at 52 Limited

    Pros

    I have had a great experience with 52 Limited and have especially enjoyed working with Jessica. She has great energy and was able to find an excellent opportunity for me quickly. I would recommend 52 Limited to all in my professional network.

    Cons

    There are none to note here.

    I have been working at 52 Limited for more than a year

    Pros

    The team at 52 Limited is unquestionably fantastic. More than one team member has helped me navigate the competitive job market in Portland with a dedication I haven't seen from many recruiting agencies. They are attentive, empathic, & driven to helping you find the right professional fit.

    Cons

    It can take a while to find a job. A lot of factors are outside the scope of 52 Ltd though. Clients change their minds, but 52 has done a great job communicating throughout the process. If you feel like someone hasn't reached out, send over an email, and you should hear something back soon.

    I have been working at 52 Limited full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I loved working with 52 limited as my agency for my contract position. It was my first experience working with an agency but I felt that they had my back the entire time. The team consistently followed up with my questions and made the process so easy. Even after my contract ended the team was still there to refer me to different jobs they felt I was qualified in- regardless of my future with 52 limited I will always...

    Cons

    There are no cons- 52 is a relatively small, boutique agency which is why each client is catered to and cared for.

    I have been working at 52 Limited

    Pros

    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...

    I have been working at 52 Limited for more than a year

    Pros

    This is the best contracting company I have ever worked for. They make you feel like an employee and an individual, not just a body to fill a vacancy. I worked with Amanda, who is absolutely the best recruiter! Amanda made sure I matched with the ideal position and wasn't afraid to take a chance. I can't say enough good things about this company.

    Cons

    Due to the hard work everyone put in, I was quickly converted to a permanent position with the client. I did not get to work with 52 Ltd very long.

    I have been working at 52 Limited full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    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 worked at 52 Limited

      Pros

      TL;DR: 52 Limited is super professional, and you can tell they actually take pride in their work and put great effort into helping the right candidates find the right positions. A total breath of fresh air compared to most of the other tech recruiting firms out there. When I was searching for a new web development position this past summer, I had a lot of recruiters contact me, nearly all of whom were completely unprofessional...
