    I worked at Hudson Advisors full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Worldwide reach through one of the largest private equity firms in the world. Career opportunities are high as a result of the significant employee turnover. The benefits are amazing!

    Cons

    Job responsibilities can be overly siloed (very boring). Revolving door and many employees were/are paranoid about losing their jobs. Difficult/rough place to work. Lots and lots of big egos, extremely limited on empathy. Too bad!

    I have been working at Hudson Advisors full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The only pro is pay and bonus.

    Cons

    Insurance has gone up. Management is a mean-girl mentality and they find enjoyment in exerting control and fear for loss of job as they fire at the drop of a hat. It has become a place where every penny is spared for those below management but those in management can wine and dine, travel, receive pay increases and promotions several times throughout the year.

    Pros

    401k match 7.5% You don’t have to do any work and still get promoted if you have good relationship with your manager

    Cons

    It’s all about office politics here. Your ability and experience is irrelevant with your title or pay. Many people with Manager or VP title don’t know anything about the business, and they spend 90% of the time playing office politics without doing any work. Don’t trust anyone in this company because they are ready to stab anyone. And don’t finish your work too early, because they don’t appreciate your hard working and will only increase your workload if they think you can take more.

    Great pay, and food work life balance

    Have to wear suite and tie everyday. In IT this is unheard of. The culture is becoming too formal. They also have a policy against working from home.

    I worked at Hudson Advisors full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are great although the 401k match vests after two years. Their compensations tends to be on par or higher than average.

    Cons

    The headline says it all. Working and walking to their offices is like a trip back to 1990. I was a child in 1990 but I can only image. From top down things are micromanaged and processes are inefficient and some completely pointless. Not to mention their aging technology and .net apps. Yes, they still have a sever room. The culture and company are not in line with a modern day work environment: most of their employees are older and have longevity there. Their turnover rate is high.
