    Thank for the review!!! It is both an honor and humbling to part of such a great team. Regarding the traffic, I met with the Mayor of Waltham and she said she is trying to get a monorail built ... More

    I have been working at Bowdoin Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've only been with the company for a couple years, but in my short time here, I have been able to make a true impact. Unlike other companies, Bowdoin empowers you to take real, ambitious strides that advance your career. I have received more out of two years here than I probably would in 5 years at a larger company where I was just a number. That combined with the flexibility I have to do my job (WFH days, etc) make Bowdoin a diamond in the rough compared to other recruiting firms!

    Cons

    To work at Bowdoin, you have to be a go-getter. If you're looking for the typical 9-5, this is not the place for you. If you want to make a real difference at a company and set yourself up for success later on in your career, then Bowdoin is definitely worth your attention!

    Advice to Management

    Continue focusing on career development, especially for entry-level hires.
