    Used to be a great place to work...

    Engineer (Former Employee)
    Hutchinson, MN

    ProsHTI was a great company -- spent 19 years there. In the later years, it got a little depressing with constant threats of layoffs. But speaking from just a company point of view: competive pay (with the cities), always treated with respect and integrity (as a woman engineer), challenging projects, great benefits. Always opportunities to move around within the company, training was supported and encouraged.

    ConsNot sure the medical division was the right avenue for company growth.

    Advice to Senior Management.

    An under-diversified company that moves at the whim of the tech industry.

    Process Development Engineer (Current Employee)
    Hutchinson, MN

    ProsWhile working at HTI I had a great relationship with my manager and supervisor. Overall I really enjoyed my experience. This being my first job the company was helpful in bringing me up to speed and supporting me through my first few difficult projects.

    ConsTechnology tends to be a boom and bust market; HTI is no exception to this, in down times there is very little job security in the company and this can make everything very stressful. The company has invested a lot of money in 2 ventures recently and has been disappointed in the payback on those investments. Both product timeliness were too aggressive and the company has struggled to capitalize on their investment during this rough economic time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMany of the life time employees had seen this type of business cycle before, this one felt worse because it coincided with the recession in the general economy but as in the past this recent bust cycle for the company seems to have hit bottom. I believe HTI is here to stay though a greater diversification in product line is needed in order to stabilize the employment cycles that the company sees.
