  1.  

    Hollstadt & Associates is a management consulting firm that puts employees and contractors first.

    Current Employee - Project Manager in Minneapolis, MN
    Current Employee - Project Manager in Minneapolis, MN

    I have been working at Hollstadt & Associates as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    I've worked for many consulting firms, and Hollstadt is by far the best. They have a fairly intense and lengthy interview and candidate vetting process, yet this serves to ensure they only work with A players.

    Cons

    Available roles are fairly limited, (primarily BA and PM), yet I believe they've expanded to Quality Assurance, and Security Consultants recently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on doing what you have been doing. The focus on only working with the cream of the crop will continue to serve you, your employees/consultants, and clients well.

    I have been working at Hollstadt & Associates full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent at Relationship Building.
    Training events offered throughout the year that range from soft skill training to hard skill training.
    Re-Marketing is a high priority. 6 weeks before end date, I am seeing opportunities for my next role.
    Great consultant events that care about the consultants.
    On site consultant lunches for current consultants - great networking.
    Friendly office staff.

    Cons

    Nothing - Leadership knows what to do and how to do it right.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue doing what you are doing!

    Pros

    Less bureaucracy than their big name competitors. Well known in the Twin Cities.

    Cons

    With the founder leaving the company, it feels as if the company is present itself as one of its big name competitors. Recruiters don't seem to be as personable as in years past. They're definitely not nearly as bad as some of their competitors but not nearly as personable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be careful as to not deviate too far from your "home town" roots. Don't let your front line employees unknowingly give the impression that you are just another staffing firm.

    Pros

    Very supportive company and willing to go the extra mile to ensure your success. Training provided! Hollstadt has a solid reputation and strong relationships with both it's consultant base and clients.

    Cons

    You manage yourself to a degree so if you don't manage time well, that could be a con.

    H&A - a good place to work

    I have been working at Hollstadt & Associates

    Pros

    - They work hard to place the right consultants with the right skills to the right position. Achieving this best fit is best for everyone and helps the company maintain its reputation in the Twin Cities.
    - They offer plenty of training and peer feedback sessions that help to not only learn new skills but also to hear about other projects from peers.

    Cons

    I think pretty much the standard ones for a privately owned consulting company:
    - most of a consultant's time is at the client site so it's hard to keep connected to the main office personnel
    - It's a small company so tactical changes happen rather quickly. Coupled with above, a consultant isn't always knowledgeable about what company priorities really are.
    - lack of a profit sharing plan

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open to expanding consulting services to a wider range of industries. H&A has a good reputation and could be successful beyond just IT and management consulting.
