    Pros

    Great people to work with and the most responsiveness staffing company I have had experience with over the past few years. They do their best to update you on new projects and when there are delays (which are well beyond their control).
     They are also very proactive about reaching out to you when they have new projects as well as temporary or permanent opportunities. Great people to work with/for.

    Cons

    None - workflow and delays beyond their control. Very nice and experienced people to work with.

    I worked at Beacon Hill Staffing Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Not a ton to share here, but they hold a holiday party in Boston every year that is paid for by the company.

    Cons

    Where to begin? I honestly went into this position with the highest of hopes. From the day I started I had immediate regrets. During the interview process I was promised thorough training which I was adamant about having since I was new to the recruiting industry. The training I received was almost non-existent. I was referred to a few lackluster documents on a shared drive to look over and shadowed a senior person on the phone one time. Then I was just expected to jump in. In addition my "manager" was the worst example of a team leader I've ever worked under. All he focused on was hitting his own numbers and working his own deals. If I went up to ask him questions (which is fair to do as a new person) he would act highly annoyed and would barely give me the time of day. If he did offer advice, it was more just a rambling of his achievements and him bragging about how he started up the division within that particular office. There is no real organization or cohesion between the different offices across the company. Each office acts as their own company which in turn creates a lot of unprofessional treatment to employees. Beacon Hill did not have an enjoyable office environment either. I'm not saying the environment even needs to be fun, but more lively might be the right word. It was not a conducive environment for new recruiters to be successful. Each department is very cliquey (excluding a few friendly coworkers) and management is not communicative or clear on goals/expectations. Overall if you are thinking of working here, please beware. A lot of the reviews on here are fake and easily spotted. And I'm sure I will receive some generic response from HR once I post this. If you want to get into recruiting don't make the same mistake I did. The profession is a lot of hard work. I worked extremely hard at this job and people at BH do as well on a consistent basis. But if you are new to the industry and learning everything for the first time, work somewhere that will actually train and support you, and invest in your success.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is everything. Be upfront about goals and expectations. Lead by example. If you want people to come in early and stay late, don't leave at noon everyday yourself because you've been there for 10 years. Train your new employees! How can you expect someone new to the industry to find success if you don't give them the tools to do so.

    Pros

    The most professional staffing agency that I've ever worked with in the city. They got me a new job in one week and they even got me a higher salary than I asked for. They also give you the best prep for an interview of any agency I've been to. They are so good, that when I was on the employer end, I signed an exclusive contract with them.

    Cons

    There are no cons that I can think of

    Advice to Management

    None
