    I have been working at WinterWyman full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    - Organized onboarding for new-hires and existing staff - Transparency throughout the firm - Competitive Compensation Structure for sales staff - Fun committee, Community development committee, Health & Wellness Committee -- they have it all! - Above average tenure within the staffing agency - Lots of room to grow and be challenged - Executive team has an open door policy

    Cons

    - 401k and benefits are average. Wish this could be more competitive or the company would explore different alternative plans where we don't fail the 401K testing each year for HCE. - Recruiting is a hard business, so the people who tend to turnover do so before 2 years because staffing isn't right for them. - PTO maxes at 4 weeks after 5 years. Would recommend adding an extra week after additional time. - No equity...

    Pros

    Great culture, lots of opportunities to give back, social outings, etc. Great place to start a career and build some business skills, and they promote high performers.

    Cons

    Recruiting is tough and very numbers driven. It isn't for everyone, but if you are motivated to make money, this could be an option.

    I worked at WinterWyman full-time

    Pros

    WinterWyman is filled with some of the most tenured individuals in the industry. The people are incredibly genuine, not only to each other but to candidates and clients. By far, my favorite part about WinterWyman is the company culture. Despite the potential to be cut throat, the culture is phenomenal. Yes, everyone wants to do well and there is a sense of competitiveness to do well within each team, however there is...

    Cons

    The con is not so much about the company as it is about recruiting as an industry. There are people who leave WinterWyman after 1-2 years, but it is more so due to lack of interest to be in the industry, and not due to WinterWyman.

    I have been working at WinterWyman full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    amazing people, some of the smartest and most talented in the industry, do things the right and respectable way; competitive yet supportive environment - I feel more cared for (mentally, physically, emotionally) than I ever expected to be at a workplace. I don't have enough good things to say about WinterWyman.

    Cons

    if you don't do well in a competitive, sales driven environment then recruiting may not be for you. but i don't have any "cons" for WW.

    I have been working at WinterWyman full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    From my personal experience the recruiters were extremely enthusiastic and accomodating now I'm not sure if once an assignment ends if they try to get back to work quickly or brush you off

    Cons

    None as of late, I'm happy

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and the office decor is very appealing.
