    I worked at Hall & Partners full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Benefit of having a consumer and health side. New office is in a great location.

    Cons

    Very stressful place to work in. 12 hour days were not unheard of. There has been a lot of turnover as of late. Lack of diversity.

    I worked at Hall & Partners full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    While working at Hall and Partners, you get the opportunity to work on a variety of projects. Opportunities for growth if they can be found.

    Cons

    Expect to work long hours with little support. Training programs are also poor. Decent benefits, but don’t expect to use a good portion of your vacation time. Management will say the right things to try and keep employees, but little to no effort is put into employee retention.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees. It effects client relationships and company performance. Listen a little more to employee goals and concerns...

    I have been working at Hall & Partners full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Opportunity for smart thinking but really only depending on who your management is. Some really big clients which gives you some solid expertise. If you want to learn primary research then this a great place to get some experience to set yourself up for the next step in your career.

    Cons

    The company has no work/life balance and will work you till you hit a breaking point. The balance of work is not even across everyone on the team because some people are just more capable or able to conduct more, better work than others. Pay is not reflective of what it should be and is ultimately driving high quality employees to leave. The company has this vision of where they want to go as a strategic brand consultancy...

    Advice to Management

    Take value in your employees instead of drowning them and not paying them for what they're worth. Don't just "talk the talk" but actually "walk the walk" and push for the vision you're trying to go into.

    I have been working at Hall & Partners full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Company has gone through a lot of changes in the past 2-3 years. It’s reflected in the work and you will learn a lot here from start to finish. This job is not for you if you don’t like being a project manager, detail oriented, quick thinking... Depending on team, manager, and client you will have a different experience here than a coworker. God forbid you’re put on a high revenue project with multiple streams and...

    Cons

    You will be severely underpaid doing so - unless you’re coming here as a manager and above. Analyst and Senior analysts (formerly known as account executives and senior account executives) make absolutely nothing and have little room for growth. It’s so top heavy here and you have to play favorites and be cliquey to become a manager or director and above. Also we didn’t get bonuses this year. Raises in the past have been...

    Advice to Management

    Promotions should be based on merit, stop playing favorites. Retain your talent by paying analysts/senior analysts or cut the long hours otherwise you will lose the people doing all the work nobody wants to do CEO is delusional and out of touch with the business in all these attempts to make this place a “strategic brand consultancy powered by data and insights”

    Pros

    None besides the extra week of vacation during Christmas time. Fake company. Has/had smart, friendly and dedicated employees but everyone is leaving and the people who haven’t left yet will soon we are miserable.

    Cons

    Where to begin? Everything. Salary for mostly everyone is INSULTING (which is one of the reasons everyone is leaving on top of staying late to do the work no one else wants to do ), promised bonuses taken away, insulting raises. People were once happy here but those days are LONG GONE. The “strategic” business leaders are laughable, if they were strategic the business would not be performing so terribly, clients would...

    Advice to Management

    Realize this is a crisis and do something about it. Figure out a way to keep the people you have, give us (your employees) who do boring work for hours on end the money, recognition and respect we deserve. Legit do anything besides what you are doing now.

    Pros

    Extremely hardworking intelligent individuals and a wonderful culture

    Cons

    Salary not competitive enough comparatively

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice if compensation was based on work ethic and skills instead of a structured timeline and salary designed to be exactly the same for every single employee

    I worked at Hall & Partners full-time

    Pros

    The people are very smart here. People come from diverse back grounds which makes it an interesting work environment. They have snacks and beverages along with bagel Friday every other Friday. Managers and directors are intelligent and helpful in explaining processes.

    Cons

    Unpredictable work hours. More often than not, hours are long. If you are coming in as an intern, beware, there is no guarantee of an employment and they will lie and tell you otherwise to make sure they get the most amount of work out of you. Communication is poor and expectations aren’t clearly defined. Opportunity for advancement is limited and seems favoritism plays a role.

    I worked at Hall & Partners full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people here are for the most part incredibly genuine, kind, and smart. You have lots of great, honest role models to learn from especially as an entry level employee. We used to have lots of fun events that people actually wanted to attend, but the company culture has plummeted drastically in the past few months. There's good vacation and benefits. Free snacks are a plus?

    Cons

    People are leaving and they aren't being replaced. Everyone who is left is drowning. It seems as if management is trying to restructure the company on a leaner model, but hasn't yet learned that it doesn't work. The once fun, engaged environment that was Hall & Partners less than six months ago has vanished. People outwardly complain about being overworked, but their equally overworked supervisors have no control over...

    Advice to Management

    Everything you do is well intentioned, but we can't take advantage of any of it when we can't even finish our work. We're all over stressed, undervalued, and over worked. Hire more people or risk losing the ones you have left.
