    I worked at Hudson Global as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Working in a non-micromanaged environment with convenient access from 7th St. Metro station or street parking just over the 110 if you prefer to drive and park for free.

    Cons

    Great recruiter everyone interviewed with left office for position in another company so one has had to deal with out-of-town recruiters that may or may not have stopped by office to introduce in person.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Local recruiter in same office who knows everyone brings the best people in.

    I have been working at Hudson Global

    Pros

    There are a lot of very smart, hard-working people here who are genuinely nice and eager to help.

    Cons

    Morale is in the basement. We keep losing money, but nobody seems to know why. The recent proxy battle was very expensive and largely fought to protect the senior leadership team's jobs. They all need to go. They make a ton of money the lot of them, but have no vision or strategy for the organization. No one is steering the boat, and the boat is sinking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please, do us all a favor and resign.

    I worked at Hudson Global full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Limited bureaucracy, some good people, (apparently) real commitment to the corporate values

    Cons

    No consistent direction - rather than a strategy, it seemed to be a "flavor of the month". Even when the economy improved, the company couldn't get on top

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop making excuses, blaming others. Accept that you can't fix it and step aside to bring in someone who can.
