    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....

    Advice to Management

    No, but they give excellent advice.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    Advice to Management

    The work-life balance that HireMinds has created is outstanding! I think having open discussions with employees regarding the culture of the company has been beneficial and it is refreshing to walk into a positive environment everyday. Please continue to provide feedback and guidance to new employees to allow them to succeed!

    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...

    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.

    Advice to Management

    You have the talent and a great culture. If you focus on maintaining both, HireMinds will continue to be one of the best boutique search firms the Boston Metro area.

    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...

    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.

    Pros

    Best leadership I've ever worked for. Most managers push people to turn results...this leadership pushes people to improve themselves at a wholistic level, which ultimately drives results without the typical grinding pressure.

    Cons

    A few minor things here and there...but nothing that would be a reason to leave or not join the team.

    Advice to Management

    Your coaching, consulting, support, and positive enthusiasm is the far and away the best I've ever experienced in my career. Thank you!!

    Pros

    HireMinds is by far the best agency in town! Not only do they work with the best clients, represent stellar candidates but truly value their employees. As a tenured employee I have seen HireMinds continue to grow and elevate their employee's and company's success. HireMinds is not your typical agency....they care about their people, employees are more than just numbers and dedicate the resources needed to get...

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

    Pros

    HireMinds was a fantastic place for me when I was starting out. It introduced me to a ton of new experiences and skills I doubt I would have found in another environment. Also the company is set up in such a way that you get direct access to clients, which is awesome. You also get access to the senior-most members of the HireMinds team and their expertise. People are remarkably approachable and insightful, which was crucial...

    Cons

    In general recruitment is a fraught process, so you deal with a lot of stress via the candidates you manage and the hiring managers your help. That's a given. Recruiting is also a sales process, which means it comes with a very quick pace contingent on high volume calls. HireMinds is very beholden to numbers, which makes sense, but sometimes a the preoccupation with stats was over-competitive and discouraging. Luckily...

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for helping me through some remarkable lessons. I know that a big part of my personal success was working alongside smart and motivated individuals with good humor, so I'm hoping things haven't changed too much. My main advice would be around making sure the environment remains open, transparent, and casual.
