    Pros

    The company produces a good quality product with an unparalleled on time delivery.

    Cons

    The biggest downside is the company's absolute intolerance for any opposing viewpoint. If you want to work for 60 plus hours a week and keep your nose down, exhibit no passion for what you do, then this is the place for you. If you have an opposing opinion, keep it to yourself if you want to climb this particular corporate ladder.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to put the message out that you want employees to voice their opinions when you want anything but that.

    Took job with great expectations. Left exhausted & disheartened. Not the organization depicted in business literature.

    Pros

    Great people in field sales Creative design Innovation Healthcare portfolio growing Committed dealers Ability to purchase discounted Herman Miller furniture West Michigan is a nice place to vist Solid reputation in the industry

    Cons

    Cloistered executive leadership teams not serving the needs of field sales Unilateral decision making (left-brained) by executive leadership Inability to adapt to changes in market quickly Not price-competitive with many products being a response to competitive offerings rather than leading the way

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people instead of creating your own paradigms that you expect us to follow. Remember the words of the founding family and walk the talk. Inclusion and diversity are important guiding principles that I believe are getting lost to finance and control-based leadership styles.
