    I have been working at HireMinds full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Working for David is like having your own personal life coach and instead of paying someone, he pays you. He will keep motivating you year after year to improve on what you want to improve on and keep you accountable to what you need to develop further (if you want him to). He is the definition of servant leadership. His mission, year after year, is to surpass his personal and business goals and help those around him do the same. He is a "coach" by nature and understands people - how to motivate & inspire and how to course-correct when needed. What keeps me here? - Professional growth and development. Every day, every month, every year is different. New companies, new technologies, and new paradigms to work through with clients, candidates, and colleagues. - Our team is amazing! Recruitment and Executive Search is a difficult business. I wouldn't want to do it with anyone else in the world than the group of folks HireMinds has brought together. We love what we do, we laugh and have fun with each other, and our clients & candidates appreciate what we do for them. - We just moved into WeWork's largest build-out in the Northeast with amazing views of Boston and the "harbah" and the espresso is great!

    Cons

    Hard to come up with any. It really is an amazing place to work.

    I have been working at HireMinds full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I've been with HireMinds about 9 months and am really happy I made the decision to join this team. Unlike many staffing agencies, we are truly allowed to focus on our job which is to find great candidates for our clients. We are not bogged down with meetings or required to meet metrics that do not align with our goals. Equally important - the culture here promotes and supports teamwork, learning, growth, and success. It's an environment where you can work hard, have fun and...have your life too. Strong, honest, leadership and supportive, smart, teammates. No drama here.

    Cons

    We'll need a bigger lunch table soon!

    I have been working at HireMinds full-time

    Pros

    It's a smaller shop with a ton of personality! Since starting I have learned so much which has continued throughout my time here. As opposed to larger agencies, here you feel very supported and heard, not only by your colleagues but also the CEO. Upper management is always willing to listen to any concerns and implement ways to fix those problems. Since starting my career in recruiting, I've learned quickly it's hard work but it' nice to have people around to make it more fun on those tough days, along with helping you nurture your career as a whole

    Cons

    Nothing to report at this time

    I have been working at HireMinds full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I started at HireMinds as a new recruiter and had no prior experience in the industry. The willingness of senior leadership to mentor has been remarkable. Not only have I learned from the Senior Director in the Biotech/Pharma Department, but also from senior employees in Marketing and Finance. David has been a key component to my success and drive within the company and I applaud him for taking an interest in every employee's work and personal successes.

    Cons

    There are no cons for working at HireMinds; however, the position requires personal drive and 100% effort each day in order to be successful. This is not a job that will allow you to sit at your desk and watch netflix all day.

    I worked at HireMinds full-time

    Pros

    Team is nice. 2 stars are for them.

    Cons

    Owner sells position with promise of training and support and fails to deliver. Recruiters (seasoned and new) are fired biweekly with no warning.

    I worked at HireMinds full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I was essentially brand new to recruiting when I joined HireMinds, and I was impressed by how willing the senior recruiters were to help on-board me. I made a lot of money and some great connections that I still leverage. A huge benefit to working at a boutique agency like HireMinds is that once you're up to speed you can start bringing in your own clients, and work both sides of a deal. If you went to work for one of the larger search firms in town they would make you wait years before giving you that opportunity. HireMinds has a tremendous reputation, and I can certainly say they've earned it.

    Cons

    If you're willing to put in the work you can make a lot of money. This definitely isn't a job where you can put your feet up on your desk and sit on Facebook all day though.

    I have been working at HireMinds full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    HireMinds is THE place to be if you are a creative, marketing, strategy or communications recruiter! I have recruited in this space for more than 15 years and keep kicking myself for not joining sooner. I am surrounded every day by a group of true professionals. The experience ranges from less than a year to more than 10 years with HireMinds alone and I am able to learn from and be pushed every day by every member of the team. It's a welcoming and nurturing culture, but it is a sales job! If you aren't afraid to work hard, love recruiting and want to be surrounded by the best, this is the place to be.

    Cons

    There are challenges in every recruiting job...the biggest challenge here is that my fellow recruiters are so good that I need to hustle that much more to get to the best candidates and clients.
