    Pros

    Hackett delivers great value to its customers. Smart people, lean teams, a desire to complete projects on time and under budget.

    Cons

    A focus on utilization, quick to lay off people on the bench, shortage of investment into solution building. All of that helps with financial stability and longevity but hurts retention of good resources and hurt differentiate the company.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at The Hackett Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Project work is exciting & challenging. Decent pay.

    Cons

    As others have pointed out, the leadership is weak. I've had to tolerate time card manipulation for the sake of utilization goals. I've witnessed layoffs that were purely political. Strategy seems nonexistent and each practice lead build a fiefdom.

    Advice to Management

    Get a grip on the practice leads and establish a vision. Don't allow parallel technology disciplines to exist. Communicate and give confidence to the employees that the micromanagement of utilization is going to end ASAP.

    Pros

    They talk about the opportunities for bonuses. When you are hired get it in your base pay because you will never see it.

    Cons

    No bonuses are paid out for 80% of folks.

    Advice to Management

    Senior leadership is a joke.

    Pros

    Have some really smart people that know oracle software. Most team members are very helpful

    Cons

    Management only care about hours worked and utilization. Ask consultants to bill extra hours at quarter end. Currently under bidding on projects to get work - thus staffing them at the below reasonable staffing levels. Wondering why they do no finish on time or the project isn't the highest quality. Have a bonus program that has not paid out in 10 quarters. Be careful if you give notice, if you not on a project... you will be booted immediately and not paid for the notice period
