I worked at Hall and Partners full-time for more than 3 years
Pros – Location, people, after-hours fun (in-house bar). Very agency-like. Creative.
Cons – VERY long hours, somewhat provincial (home grown), not enough with experience outside H&P, too much internal competition (us versus them).
Advice to Senior Management – Bring finances into 21st century. Need to bring in people from outside. They don't know what they don't know!
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I worked at Hall and Partners full-time for more than 8 years
Pros – Great benefits and very competitive salary at director and higher levels. Opportunity to work with some leading brands and advertising agencies. Casual friendly work atmosphere
Cons – Business is losing its uniqueness and value. Cannot compete operationally with global competitors but does not have creativity or nimbleness of boutique firms. Highly political at the highest levels (all meaningful decisions made in London) New ideas and any form of 'disagreement' in strategy from other senior management is not allowed. Thought leaders and creative thinkers who do not conform to the exact plans of the global management are forced out or suddenly resign . . .leaving a cadre of 'yes' men and women who aren't empowered to make decisions
Advice to Senior Management – Listen to mid level employees, retain super stars and fight against conformity
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Pros – People are awesome, made some great friends, young and interesting and smart
Cons – over worked, and underpaid, poor staffing plan results in stretching people way to thin and leading to burn out.
Advice to Senior Management – plan better.
