    Pros

    Robust intellectual property built on 20+ years of benchmarking data and research that is highly respected by most Fortune 500 CFO's

    Cons

    Outside benchmarking other capabilities and lines of service are good but far less known and less mature. In those areas project opportunities and talent may be thin at times.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership needs to invest more time being visible and accessible to staff and should consider ways to provide more cross training and cross selling for staff.

    I have been working at The Hackett Group (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Work/Life balance is good, even with the weekly travel required of consultants
    -Majority of people I work with are great. Extremely knowledgeable and easy to get to know.
    -Clients and assignments provide a wealth of opportunity, even for younger consultants; exposure to the client is excellent.
    -Assignments are challenging, but not to the point where you are set up to fail
    -Cross-practice coordination is becoming more and more common, allowing for resources to be utilized jointly
    -Outlook for the company is very good

    Cons

    -Compensation is well below average unless you come from a Big 4 type consulting firm. Even if you are a top performer
    -Benefits are average: health/dental/vision and PTO are ok, but 401k is very low.
    -Being a smaller firm, you do not have much choice with client assignments

    Advice to Management

    If you claim to pay to attract and keep top talent, then back that up by paying market rates.
    Otherwise, keep doing what you're doing. The business performance speaks for itself.

    Continue to provide opportunities for personal development and growth. Bringing the team together is always appreciated and helps build a good culture.

    I worked at The Hackett Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you're looking to work for a top notch organization in the consulting industry. They don't get any better than The Hackett Group. I worked in Business development for approximately a year under Pat West. Pat is the consummate manager. Very caring, very knowledgeable. This seems to be the common thread with everyone that I encountered during my tenure here. The positions are remote and as long as you deliver quality, they don't bother you. Even when you struggle (as everyone in sales does on occasion), the entire team is there to motivate and assist in every way possible. If you're reading this because you're considering employment with this organization - don't pass this one up.

    Cons

    Pay is rather average, but with hard work you can make it up in commission.

    Sales environment is matrix. You're sharing accounts with several different practices within the organization. This will take some getting used to.

    Career advancement opportunities for this position are scarce

    Advice to Management

    Stay true to your mission and culture.
