    Used to be a good place to work. However, the company is going in a totally different direction.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Muscatine, IA

    ProsI've been here a long time and I know the business.

    ConsThe legacy system is being replaced with a third-party, packaged software. Not sure where my place in the new environment will be. Communication is lacking in the direction of the department. People have started leaving the department in droves. During the recession, the department had a wage freeze. Now that business is picking up, we would like be compensated for our service during the recession. Raises seem to be worse than before the recession. We are asked to take on more responsibility with no compensation or additional title. People are getting fed up.

    Advice to Senior ManagementValue your employees. Treat them with respect and compensate them for their dedication on making the company profitable.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Lost its way

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe company still is financially sound and still has a large market presence.

    ConsToo many acquisitions that fail. The company doesn't seem to know what to do with them except shut down facilities. High risk for you if HNI acquires your company. Two classes of employees; those in Muscatine who will keep their jobs if at all possible. If you're not in Muscatine, you are the first to go.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou need an actionable vision, not just general platitudes. Overhead costs are killing you; too many VP's and empires inside the company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    It started out great, but has deteriorated immensely.

    ProsI've been here for 14 years and it's close to home

    ConsThey are out sourcing their software development. I'm a software developer.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCare about your employees more.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
