    WinterWyman was a simply fantastic workplace.

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

    Pros

    As a contractor with the company they are very concerned about your adjustment into a company.

    Cons

    If you work as a contractor, you may encounter some unprofessionalism if you choose to leave.

    The details of your contract are floating in space. You are told you're free to leave. If it doesn't work out and when you actually decide to, it's the end of the world.

    Employees seem to get disgruntled easily and take this out on their clientele.

    Advice to Management

    I think that it is important to treat all employees with respect no matter what decision an employee has made with your company. If an employer feels that their employee is unprofessional or they are upset over a decision they have made then emotions should be kept out of it. If the employee can handle that better, then maybe the employee isn't the problem. Also be clear on details of a contact, that way neither the recruiter or contractor are in the dark. When it comes to recruiting it would be best to leave emotions out of it, in business nothing is ever guaranteed. Contractors especially know this, so recruiters should be on board.

    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.
