Pros

Great place to work with solid management community, compensation and mentorship. Also provides great opportunity for professional development and networking.

Cons

Sometimes the hard-working culture makes work life balance ridicule. Specifically, it is difficult to balance school and management responsibilities. Also must learn to manage friendship and work relationships professionally.

    Pros

    The people you meet are incredible. The opportunities for innovation and entrepreneurship are outstanding. Everyone wants to help and is more than willing to meet and talk with you. And, best of all, it is a vibrant and fun work environment where everyone more or less loves the work they are doing.

    Cons

    The pay is not the best, but it is only a part-time job. Sometimes, you will have to work a ton in a given week and earn way more than you are paid whereas other weeks it may be slow and you may not work as much. Overall, it balances out though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A bit more recognition for a job well done. The status quo is hard work at HSA, but it helps when you are told that the work you are doing is appreciated.

    HSA is simply the best business experience offered to college undergraduates anywhere in the world.

    Pros

    -Run a multi-milliondollar business with other teenagers and young adults
    -Earn more than in any other job as a student
    -Gain easy access to HSA alums, HBS professors, and other prominent business people
    -Have an incredible summer and a blast throughout the year

    Cons

    Because of the many different student-run agencies within HSA, the hierarchy of the company in general could be more transparent. Also, the most interesting parts of HSA (million-dollar deals, etc) are really only known by upper management and their select confidantes, while most managers are not privy to the coolest things about the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the company's hierarchy and inner workings more transparent. This would increase loyalty to the company and provide even better business experience to the students, which is the company's very mission.
