    Offshoring programming / DP
    Senior management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lack of serious leadership. Partners and Managing partners are out of touch with the true operation, and do not loop global leadership in with the issues that we are having.

    Operations and Researchers are always at odds.

    I worked at Hall & Partners as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    As an intern, this was a fantastic working experience. There was real-world application, great clients to work with, and a real learning experience for a college student. It was a fun work environment with lots of social opportunities as well.

    Cons

    The employees are cliquey - invite interns to lunch too! Don't make us feel badly for being young. That's the point.

    I worked at Hall & Partners full-time

    Pros

    It aspires to be a place where innovation and creativity are valued, but often pragmatic considerations take priority which can be disappointing. The culture is great as people are fun and smart - so it's a social environment. Open seating that provides for the flow of ideas and dialogue. Great place to work, especially entry level.

    Cons

    As it's grown, there is less of a focus on smaller clients which are often more creative and interesting. The push is large engagements which hinder creativity and lead to an off the shelf approach - something that is against H&P ethos. Morale is questionable at times as there is an inconsistency in what the company wants to be vs. what it is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep a close eye on morale and treat people fairly and as evenly as you can.

    I have been working at Hall & Partners full-time

    Pros

    Employees try hard to make it work by investing significant effort. Most are decent people.

    Cons

    MISMANAGED: Operates day-to-day in reactive vs. pro-active mode which results in much wasted time.
    NO COMPETITIVE EDGE: Offering has become commoditized. Meeting business goals is a daunting challenge without having a unique point of differentiation.
    GROSSLY UNDER RESOURCED: Unable to fill open positions (bad reputation on the street). 1 person often expected to do the job of 2 or 3.
    POOR LEADERSHIP: "find a way to get it done" is the attitude without any critical assessment or recognition of deficiencies in the environment that often make achieving goals unrealistic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Get the organization staffed appropriately
    2. Develop a sustainable plan to compete on something other than price
    3. Get ahead of the curve with operational practices
    3. Be honest and transparent with employees and clients!

    Pros

    The people are amazing; your coworkers are bright, hardworking, ambitious, and still fun. The work is relatively interesting depending on your project at the time.

    Cons

    It is definitely hard work and the hours can be a little demanding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Notice the people that put in more time and get amazing results

    Pros

    Great exposure to Fortune 100 and 500 clients. Supportive team environment with bi-annual reviews. Fun atmosphere, company culture, and coworkers. Not as many office politics as other companies within the industry.

    Cons

    Work can be tedious and demanding, especially since there's a tendency to understaff. Experience is entirely dependent on the office location - some offices are currently running better in terms of staffing and culture.

    Pros

    Employees get a lot of training and mentorship.

    Cons

    Communication from management is lacking and overall company vision/direction is unclear or at best mixed. There has been a lot of employee churn at all levels both involuntary and voluntary. Low morale due to downsizing and unexpected layoffs.
