    Great people - no vision

    Manager (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsGreat people, interesting work, chance to learn, good opportunities for training

    Consno vision, one size fits all approach to employees that have different skills and jobs, management often seems to be wearing blinders.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMaking money or just growing is not a vision. You will get better work and more satisfaction out of employees if you treat them as individuals and not as identical cogs.

    Low morale these days - people are leaving in herds...

    Support Services (Current Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsGreat people
    Good work/life balance
    Good benefits
    Heavy emphasis on local community activities

    ConsPoor pay not in line with market and slow process to advance
    Too many and continuous organizational changes

    Advice to Senior ManagementSenior Management needs to be more consistent and become more in tune with what is actually going on at the various offices across the country. Morale has plummetted across the firm this past year with the new operating model. Something has to be done to motivate people again - they are leaving in herds.

    Work your butt off for no reward

    Manager Consulting Services (Current Employee) Dallas, TX

    Prossome of the people are nice, talented, and genuine
    fun beer chugging culture

    Conssalary + benefits. they will give you excuses all day long as to how they are paying 'market' rates and why they can't pay you x.
    leadership & management are all talk and full of excuses. they play favorites and it shows.
    can't get their act straight to really become a big 4 like they want.

    Advice to Senior Managementvalue your workers, stop being subjective in promotions and salaries and ratings, pay your workers, stop making excuses and giving us bs. everyone under the VP level may seem like they admire the VPs, but deep down people are untrusting of anyone over VP.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good people, third-tier consultancy

    Manager (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsThe fellow consultants are fairly warm hearted and professional. Before losing many of the top guys, good deal of industry expertise and years of experience at the firm.

    ConsThe management is completely scattered. Was disappointed in the lack of communication and paths for advancement. Compensation is far below market average. Don't know if this was a cultural issue with the senior management from Japan (which to be fair was very nice to work with), but would not advise HC as a good gig. Other support services were minimal. Company has experienced a lot of brain drain in recent years -- many of the better people have left for other gigs that pay market.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSenior decisions seem to be made in a closet and communicated poorly.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    an okay place to park your career for a few years

    Consulting Manager (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

    Prossmall consulting company with greta quality of consultants.
    The oroginal company Tactica was superb, which went downhill after acquisition of Anderson consulting team which took over the company and brought a lot of favoritism in play
    comparable benefits

    Consa lot of favoritism and disregard for hardworking consultants when it was time for promotion. Promotions were based on your selling skills rather than delivery skills.

    Advice to Senior Managementbe fair, reduce favoritism, provide a career path for technically solid consultants instead of trying to make them salespersons.
