    Pros

    The people are the best part. Smart, creative, friendly, you will make professional connections and probably personal friends here. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Training is sorely lacking for certain positions. Not all those hired for non-entry level positions are actually at the professional level they should be.

    Advice to Management

    This is already happening, but encourage and reward growth. Seek a diverse range of clients.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Hall & Partners full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people. H&P had at the time some of the best people I have ever worked with. They made it truly special. The work and clients were interesting but what made it special was how I looked forward to coming to work with such exemplary people.

    Cons

    Got too top heavy. Constant changing and shifting leadership team made it impossible to establish tone for NY office. Lacked natural leaders. Global CEO treated employees like children while asking them to behave like adults.

    Advice to Management

    Find a new global CEO. Stop trying to be Millward Brown. Or stop advertising yourself as a unique alternative. Remember that the people are what made Hall and Partners great. But if you chase them away you'll end up being another has been MR firm.

    Pros

    Friendly people, easy to work with, a solid market research company with really strong qualitative research.

    Cons

    It is a fast moving / changing industry and there are many new innovative ways to collect data and conduct market research. H&P was a bit slow on incorporating innovative ways and new data sources into research

    Advice to Management

    Do not ignore innovation, bring in new methodologies.

    I worked at Hall & Partners full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very creative approach to advertising and communications research. Can genuinely claim to have been thought leaders and pioneers. Back in the 90's.

    Cons

    Unfocussed, undisciplined, directionless, autocratic, poor processes and in attention to detail.

    Advice to Management

    Omnicom should ask the Global CEO why the average tenure of Managing Partners and Partners is less than two years.
