Pros

I felt they worked too hard to avoid being a responsible employer by side stepping the Warn Act deliberately by running severance programs just a hair under the number that required providing notice to employees. When they decide to cut staff, they walk in, tell you the bad news, and then immediately walk you out. You're off the payroll that very day. Terrible treatment.

Cons

No teamwork. No sharing of information, collaboration, or other ways to identify areas of improvement. At BHI, businesses work in silos, but individuals do too. I was part of a large discipline, but we never had team meetings, we never shared ideas or explored areas of overlap or duplication. When you join conference calls, instead of everyone in your office joining a call together, everyone calls from their own offices. Very strange environment.

Advice to Management

Have a conscience for your people. Earn a reputation for being a fair and reasonable employer. You earned the reputation you have as a disloyal and unpredictable employer.

    Pros

    Good pay, lots of overtime

    Cons

    Always away from family. Management where I work is not the best. They preach safety, but run you to death. Policies are too extreme. Soon there will be a policy on how to use the bathroom. LOL....they'll run you like they own ya!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Retire!!!!!! Let some new blood in the veins.
