    This industry can be filled with ego-maniacs and amateurs but H&P has somehow found the best of the best at all levels.The talent is smart and diverse and includes big thinkers and data gurus

    Global opportunities are awesome. Offices everywhere!

    Great reputation with clients and in the industry

    The perks of being part of a holding company

    Flexibility

    Cons

    H&P brand is going through a real evolution and it takes time and requires patience and trust

    Technology could use a face lift. Macs!

    Advice to Management

    Encourage your teams to be "out there" in the industry so that H&P gets more presence and recognition. Look for talent in unusual places

    H&P attracts smart, talented people who genuinely care about doing great work. The people in our office support each other, have a lot of fun, and work incredibly hard to wow clients and do meaningful, innovative work.

    Cons

    Because we're in the client service business, volume and pace of work can vary and be unpredictable at times.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in and support our people because they've always been the reason for our success.

    Pros

    Innovative methodologies and creative output delivered to clients

    Leadership doesn't know what they are doing and they don't have a clear vision. There is little to no work/life balance.

I am very grateful to call Hall & Partners home and i am looking forward to the years to come!

    I have been working at Hall & Partners full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    H&P has a great culture and wonderful people. Though this is my first job out of college and I've only been here less than a year, I feel as though my voice is heard and I make a valued difference. With social events such as the summer party and Friday Night Drinks, it's been really fun working here. I also enjoy the free food/snacks.

    Cons

    Our space could be better; it looks a bit drab right now.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! You've got a good thing going.

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

    Pros

    The people are friendly and (for the most part) genuinely like each other. Very comfortable office atmosphere. Good laughs shared. Feels like a team.

    Cons

    Training and onboarding is not good. Long (LONG) hours. Nowhere near enough staff to get jobs done in normal business hours. (Thanks, Omnicom!) Also middle management is subpar. They don't show that they actually care about those junior to them, take on more work than they can handle in order to look good to their bosses, and aren't afraid to push unwanted work that they believe to be "below them" onto those junior than them even though they have nowhere near capacity to take it on.

    Advice to Management

    Trainings. Actual trainings from day one- not just shoving work onto the newbies, saying "figure it out because everyone is swamped." It's vital in order to sustain company traditions and keep morale up. Also, upper management, ask around the office as to what's really going on, bc most managers and directors are just showing you their good side to suck up.
