    I worked at WinterWyman full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    One of the things that stood out to me the most at WinterWyman was the people. I started at WW straight out of college and felt supported from day one within my team. My direct manager was above and beyond one of the best managers I have ever had in my career. The training was extensive and never stopped the two years I was there. I also enjoyed the various community service projects that WW was involved in. I have amazing respect and admiration WinterWyman and all of its employees. They have won 'Best Places to Work' several times and for good reason. This is a great company to gain experience and grow with.

    Cons

    Recruiting is a very demanding job which I don't think is necessarily a con, but definitely something to keep in mind. To be successful at WW you need to have an incredible work ethic and drive. The hours are long and you will sign on from home after work hours during the week and on weekends. I always felt like I wasn't able to 'turn off' from work, which for some may not be a concern, but if work/life balance is important to you than I would keep in mind that recruiting doesn't stop at 5PM.

    Pros

    I very much enjoyed the assignment WinterWyman found for me in terms of the type of work. The recruiters at WinterWyman are responsive and fair.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the work environment of the client to which WinterWyman sent me left much to be desired. Their client was overly and unnecessarily regimented to the point of inefficiency (ie: mandatory breaks even when in the middle of a project). I also witnessed rather blatant discrimination toward 3 other employees of color. The client terminated me on the project without warning because the supervisor had noticed I answered my cell phone at my desk and had listened, discovering I was talking with a recruiter. While the client was unfair, WinterWyman handled it as best as they could.

    Advice to Management

    WinterWyman may want to vet their clients a bit better.

  9. "Best Company I've Ever Worked For"

    Pros

    I've never known a company to invest so heavily, and so creatively, in their employees. Senior level management and their Directors recognize talent when they see it, and aren't afraid to acknowledge bright, smart, and driven employees. One thing I liked most about working here is that senior level management is open to, asks for and encourages employees of all expertise levels to speak up and offer up ideas. Too, as a Manager, I worked right along side executives and upper management on projects that ultimately changed the face of the company and their strategies for success. I liked how experienced managers asked me my opinions throughout projects and programs.

    WinterWyman has a robust and renowned Community Development Committee with ample opportunities to give back and volunteer, often on a weekly basis. Too, the Wellness Director serves up an active and year-round Wellness initiative where health and wellness speakers come in to share on topics and best practices. (Plenty of opportunities for your active self, too!) The Fun Committee plans annual boat cruises, Boston sports game outings, and a whole lot more.

    The CEO, Bob Boudreau is the nicest, most genuine executive I have ever known or heard of. When you talk, you can tell he's really listening and fully invested in your conversation with him. He actively participates in volunteer programs and actually wants to hear your ideas to improve the company.

    Cons

    I think WinterWyman as a whole has the opportunity to be more open to and better embrace new technologies, techniques and tools in social recruiting, productivity, internal communication boards, as well as other areas. That said, I would say they fall in the middle of the spectrum when it comes to conservative companies who do not embrace technology at all and forward-thinking, "disruptive" companies who embrace all technologies (often to a fault).

    Advice to Management

    Continue to lean on and ask less-experienced but bright and driven employees for feedback about what they are seeing in the trenches, and actively seek out their ideas. Maybe bring back "Think Tank" 2.0

    Too, don't be afraid to align with an up-and-coming local startup or sign up as a beta user for a tool or technology that could improve marketing, social recruiting, productivity, or other. Positioning WW as an early technology adopter could not only give you a competitive advantage with candidates or clients but could help you better attract internal employees.

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

    Pros

    WinterWyman is a company that really allows for work/life balance. In the staffing industry that can be something that's hard to find. There are many pros to working here including: generous vacation time, decent starting salary (especially when you are starting off and not fully commissioned yet), in-house fun committee that plans awesome work outings/events/employee appreciation, beautiful offices in both Waltham and Downtown Boston, flexibility to work from home when needed, and overall great upper management.

    I could not ask for a more supportive team of people to help me grow my career as a recruiter!

    Cons

    Health Insurance is a bit pricey and there is a 90 day waiting period to get on it even as a full-time internal employee, plus there is a 1 year waiting period for 401K matching

    Advice to Management

    Keep an eye on veteran account managers/staffing managers who can sometimes give off a negative vibe to newer people.

    Not the most diligent in looking for opportunities on my behalf. You need to be your own advocate and remind them you're actively looking for contract work.
