Previous CEO (BB) was great. Very engaging, training was readily available and offered. Family mentality. Good work life balance.
Once TPG took over, things decreased rapidly. It was obvious that money was more of the motive versus caring about their employees.

As one of the oldest staffing firms in the Northeast, there is a lot to like about WinterWyman. Solid training program, good systems/tools, and decent culture.
Everything at WinterWyman is a moving target. While there, the market started to boom in the mid 2000's, so management changed the compensation plan which negatively impacted employees! Philosophies and business objectives always seemed to be in flux. CEO was an accountant by trade, and had never "run a desk". As a result, his management style seemed extremely numbers oriented at a granular level. Not to say numbers aren't important, but he tended to want to boil everything down to a metric, even a metric that missed the point (like the TPLQ system). Too many people who have been there too long and have a sense of "ownership" at many accounts. Junior people often complained that they couldn't easily move to the client side of the business because of this. Finally, the long term career prospects are terrible. Becoming a manager of people at WinterWyman is a thankless job. The financial incentives are poor, and even after you have successfully trained and developed someone who is a superstar, senior management can and will take them away from you on a whim. While some of the senior level people at WinterWyman are solid, many are just those who won the war of attrition. They were people who were mediocre performers who chugged along and just lasted longer than those who got out before them.3WinterWyman Response9y

I am three years out of school and I'm the only one of my close friends that hasn't "job hopped" - for a millennial, that is saying a lot! WinterWyman is a successful mix of "old school" (instilling values like taking the high road, having a good work ethic, and maintaining moral ethics) and "new school" (adapting to a rapidly changing marketplace both from a business strategy perspective and keeping up with advancing technology). Sales is not for everyone and they get that. But, they also recognize people who mirror the company culture they promote and if that person is in the "right bus, wrong seat", they'll work with you to find a more comfortable position. In fact, that is a practice they encourage. The corporate staff is friendly, approachable, and not looked at like a "cost center" which happens so often in other sales environments. The company has at least one sponsored (by the "fun committee") every month and numerous community service opportunities that everyone is encouraged to attend. An annual community service day is organized that everyone attends.
The old school values that WW does have has more positives than negatives, but WW could attract and keep more talent by loosening their dress code restrictions and offering a more flexible work schedule to more than just moms with kids. Millennials have come to expect more "perks" and that is simply the market we live in. At some point, its time to get on board. Again, its not WW's fault that Waltham is such a busy area. Flexibility in these two areas would go a long way in competing for the new talent the company needs to maintain its rapid growth.WinterWyman Response8y
Thank you for taking the time to write such a thoughtful and insightful review. You make some very astute observations about our culture and how we could be better at courting and retaining millennials. As you mentioned, we are under a period of growth and actively recruiting for several entry-level positions so your advice couldn’t come at a better time. Retention is critical to our success and I would be very interested in speaking with you confidentially. Please reach out if you feel comfortable. ~Michelle Roccia, EVP, Employee Engagement, 781-530-3070, firstname.lastname@example.org
