    I have been working at Hudson Advisors part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Nothing to appreciate.They gave fake promises..but nothing worked as per they said. salary, appraisal, duties and responsibilities.Nothing was followed legally. complete cheating management. Especially the HR

    Cons

    Nobody followed professional ethics.HR is more important to them than their employees. They have fired a lot of good employees already.literally harassment on employees.no respect. no values. a irresponsible leadership

    Advice to Management

    Don't get fooled by the reviews here. They required you to place a review here in Glassdoor and it should be a five star review or else they will also dismiss you like the rest of the employees without any warning. DON"T GET FOOLED BY THIS COMPANY. THIS COMPANY IS THE WORST.

    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.

    I have been working at Hudson Advisors full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - You get to work with and learn from talented, highly skilled people. - The salary is above average. - There are a performance bonus and increment scheme. - Christmas parties are the absolute best (one of the reasons I stayed). - Direct management is easy to work with and reasonable. - There is an investment in people.

    Cons

    - Upper management is completely disconnected from the workforce. - It is a "boys club" culture and who you know to get ahead. - Promotions are difficult and almost none existing unless if you are with the "in- crowd". - The good people do not stay long (a few months or a year) and they move on. - There are a lot of people that want to be in charge, however, no one wants to take responsibility. -... Communication is severely lacking (from upper management) - do as you are told cloak and dagger stuff. - Independent thinking outside the box is frowned upon. - There is a lack of knowledge sharing, and it is an "everyone for themselves" culture.

    Advice to Management

    For the business, it is like the ship is adrift, with no one at the wheel. Employees give 100% however this is not recognized by upper management (the C level management). Employees are treated as disposable - the COO announced two months ago that about 70% - 80% of the internal IT function will be outsourced, almost an entire (global) department is made redundant. This is a recipe for disaster, creating fear and... anxiety in other departments. I would not be surprised if a lot of staff leave next year (loyalty to the company = 0). There are numerous examples on the web why outsourcing fails, in this case it will be: a) If this is done as a cost-saving exercise going with the big-bang approach (wiping out frontline customer-facing services) this WILL fail. b) Lack of communication with the business. All I can say is Good Luck, the people that you are loosing and the commitment they put into the business, you will not easily find again and an outsourced company will not give you the same service level or commitment. The damage has been done and there is no turning back from this. Companies that failed because of the above mentioned: -- J.P. Morgan and IBM -- US Navy and EDS -- Virgin Airlines Grounded by IT Provider Navitaire -- Royal Bank of Scotland I hope when this fails all upper management and decision-makers are made to walk the same plank, like what the people sacrificed for the gamble did.

    Great pay, and food work life balance

    Cons

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Ger rid of the ties... you can't hire the best people if you can't offer the best environment.
