    I worked at Hudson Advisors full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, pay, resume booster, and location.

    Pretty much everything else varies on groups (I was lucky to have a reasonable VP to report to with my job duties).

    Cons

    Culture, turnover, disorganized management, and either extremely busy employees or ones that provide nothing. You really can't trust anyone at Hudson and they lay people off as fast as a McDonald's drive through. Jodi really doesn't care about anything except the general partners which good for them but pretty much is terrible if you work there and pretty much are looking to out source your job or replace you with technology. Pretty much everyone is looking to get out and there have people that have quit and gone on mission trips or quit to be full time unemployed ski bums if that speaks any volume to you. The company never has events so if you ran into someone one floor above you in the elevator then you'd probably think they worked for Larry North, Zix Corp (Well they all wear jeans nvm), or Kitano Capital. Honestly I was in a somewhat decent sized team and liked most people in my team but if it weren't for that would say it's definitely a terrible place if you enjoy the company other people and a job.

    Advice to Management

    Fire Jodi, seriously she shouldn't be in charge of operations.

    I have been working at Hudson Advisors full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Professional atmosphere while also a fun environment. Many perks to working at Hudson including great team building functions and holiday parties. Terrific people to work with that know their job and also accomplish their job. No dead wood allowed to drift in this company. Beautiful offices to work in and paid parking in Uptown - not a usual perk for many Dallas companies.

    Cons

    Hudson does not use the title of "Executive Assistant" as this would require a boost in salary even though we are exactly that - Executive Assistants. The pay for the Administrative Assistants is a little below the market and the annual raises won't really make a difference in the paycheck at the end of the day as these are barely above a cost of living increase.

    Advice to Management

    Compensate the administrative team better to ensure that the hardworking talent that supports the execs remain at Hudson instead of looking elsewhere to simply make enough money to exist. This is a terrific company to work for but the salary offered and my ability to live on these wages is far more important.

    Pros

    The company offers competitive benefits and a fair salary for the job you are expected to do. The management is willing to work with employees to ensure they maintain a healthy work/life balance and meet family obligations. Otherwise, be prepared to work and to learn a lot!

    Cons

    401k matching could be better
    Huge swings in work load
