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

    Pros

    I've worked through several contracting companies, and Hollstadt is just head and shoulders above them all. The care that they take in screening consultants, giving us what we need to succeed, and keeping the clients happy is exceptional.

    Cons

    Focus is on large corporations. This may be a good thing for some, though I would prefer a bit more variety.

    I have been working at Hollstadt & Associates full-time

    Pros

    I have worked for Hollstadt & Assocates for almost 2 years. This company treats employees with respect and really value our skills and values that we use at Hollstad & Associates clients every day. There are many training offerings that keeps consultants current in the market place. The management team walks the talk of the Hollstadt & Associates values or First understand, Be humbly confident, Do the right thing and Grow and prosper. I've worked for other consulting companies and none are close to Hollstadt & Associates in the dedication to their employees.

    Cons

    I do not have any Cons regarding Hollstadt & Associates.

    Advice to Management

    Continue on the path of encouraging employees and communicating to clients about the Hollstadt & Associates model of excellence.

    Pros

    Hollstadt has some of the best people I've met in the industry. Their recruiters care about their consultants and the sales folks care about their clients. They've been able to attract some great talent in the Twin Cities.

    Cons

    Leadership seems to have tunnel vision and is focusing on the wrong thing. They need to stop trying to teach people lessons and start listening to their concerns. Hollstadt has seen over 50% attrition in the last year or so losing great internal employees to competitors and other industries. Their reputation isn't what it used to be and it's concerning.

    Advice to Management

    Re-read the values you have written on the wall.

    I worked at Hollstadt & Associates full-time (More than 3 years)

    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 Management

    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.
