    my time at miller

    Market Manager (Current Employee) Stamford, CT

    Prosthe trainig at HM is great, upper management does a great job to make sure you are adequetly supported and armed with the tools and knowledge to be succesful. there was never a sense that i was thrust out to the world and left to my own devices. great support team and structure and a sense of family among the sales team.

    Consin the beginning it can be very difficult to navigate the structure ofthe company and to find the people you might need to reach in order to accomplish your objectives.

    Advice to Senior Managementbegin to seriously invest in the young memebers of the workforce as well as bringing in young fresh blood to the company whose values align with your own. otherwise you wil be playing a shell game with folks from other manufacturers as the existing workforce ages out and you run the risk of losing what it is that makes Herman Miller great and unique. the people who truly believe in the core values.
