I have been working at The Hackett Group

Pros

* Great People
* Middle managment are easy to talk to
* Work week is generally Mon-Thur and not required to come to the office on Fridays
* IP is really good in some areas and it is very informative

Cons

* Constantly changing perfromance review process
* Practice managment constantly changing because COO lacks committment to retaining talented people. In the COO's mind you are just a number that can be easily replaced despite the fact that organizationally we advocate talent management.
* Organization does not practice what it preaches with regards to Best Practices

    I worked at The Hackett Group

    Pros

    Excellent project management. Every project I worked on finished on time and on budget, with high customer satisfaction. The project managers know what they are doing.

    Cons

    Poor marketing. Senior management (CEO, President) shifted strategy away from project work to subscriptions, leaving a lot of good business on the table. The senior folks were rigid when reviewing some very worthwhile projects, losing them to other companies even though the projects would have produced significant cash flow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set up a structure to take advantage of the opportunities in project work.

    Pros

    Best practices methodology, Fortune 100 clientele, global presence, experienced leadership who focuses on only bottom-line results (at the expense of field staff)

    Cons

    Leadership blinded toward activities in the field that affect employee morale and turnover. Giving "credit where credit is due" is not a prevailing philosophy among Senior Directors and Vice Presidents - - consulting managers and directors continually thrown under a moving bus. Feedback for improvement is not appreciated by leadership. Intimidation is common and professional behavior absent. The PMP program is ineffective and is not taken seriously by those who are responsible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a hard look at the Senior Director and Vice Presidents - - most do not practice the Company philosophy and are only interested in billing the client for as much as they can get away with.
