      As a consultant, there are very few agencies in the Seattle market that will care about you and treat you as well as Rylem will. I can’t think of anyone I worked with at Rylem who wouldn’t go above and beyond to do whatever it took to do right by their contractors. Great benefits, amazing internal operations to ensure pay, benefits and other HR functions for our consultants are always running smoothly. As far as internal operations go (Sourcers, Recruiters, Sales)- Rylem is a great place to be, but is not without it’s flaws. Rylem isn’t perfect, but what company is? Above all else, Rylem is a great place to be if you want to enjoy being at work, make great money, and build a career if you’re new to staffing/recruiting. Rylem’s training and development program is second to none. Probably it’s biggest problem is retention, due to large tech companies like Google and Amazon poaching all of it’s employees. But management has done a great job at making Rylem a place that’s hard to leave, for me at least. Rylem isn’t for everyone though. Personalities can definitely clash, and there have been a lot of negative experiences here, as some of the feedback below shows. There’s a lot of criticism, much of which is true, or somewhat true. But a lot simply comes from disgruntled employees who probably didn’t perform well, or didn’t work well with others. There certainly is a lot of room for improvement at Rylem, but management truly does make a concentrated effort at always hearing out its employees, and making improvements to the business, the culture, the policies, and anything else it can. They want you to enjoy working there, and they want you to be successful. For me, leaving Rylem was tough, but that wasn’t the case for all people. As I said, it’s not right for everyone. But it’s a great place to learn, develop, and/or make a lot of money, in place that for me was fun and down to earth. Pros: - Management that cares about you personally and professionally, and is always striving to find ways to improve. - Exceptional training and development; if you are a young professional looking to get your start in recruiting, look no further. - Highly competitive commission structure and base pay - Very laid back, energetic and down to earth culture (which will probably not be right for a lot of people) - “Work hard, play hard” mentality (I know everyone says that, but it’s really the culture at Rylem) - Amazing clients to work with a recruit for (Amazon, Expedia, Starbucks, Nordstrom, Microsoft, and more) - Free food and drinks - Awesome office space (think techy industrial look)


      Cons: - Increasing lenience on VMS accounts, which can make it hard to find opportunities to redeploy contractors at the end of their contracts - Consistency and follow-through with new ideas and policies is not strong, to stay the least - Somewhat prescriptive policies in terms of how to do your job (although metrics and numbers at Rylem are a lot less intense than most staffing agencies, from what I’ve heard) - The culture could be a con to some people; if you’re an extremely buttoned up and serious professional who strives to separate work and personal life, Rylem will not be the place for.

        Contractors and clients are generally happy with delivery of expectations. IE:(product) This experience can be attributed to an amazing sales staff and recruiting engine that truly care about the success of a candidate. Also, has great wifi connectivity, refreshments and office space.


        If your looking for a "good old boys" throw down at the local watering hole experience, this is the place for you. Nonlinear, narcissistic shouting is a blast in morning stand ups and provides for great laughs when shared with competent professionals.


        You have great advice that we will take into consideration. Thank you very much for your review!

      Those hired/rejected by MBB, how did you get the news after the first round of interviews? Via phone or email? As of now all the comms with HR were through email, so not sure what to expect. Also it has been >1 weeks since...🫠McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company



      I recently did a phone interview and it went well. A week later, I get an in person interview with HR. They let me know I will be hearing back from them shortly. On linked in, the position I applied for opened back up, is this a sign that they decided to not hire me? I’ll be reaching out soon. But just got me disappointed.
