Subsidized lunch
Stability

Cons

Politics, Politics, Politics!
Lack of work-life balance
Poor vacation package
Not much opportunity to work outside what you were hired for.
Poor mentorship and high turnover.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do not pigeon-hole your employees, ask what their goals are and know their background. Many can do more than the function for which they were hired

    Pros

    Excellent benefits & location.
    At least within the IT, non-management realm, very easy work / life balance.

    Cons

    Management is clearly overworked. When you observe this, you tell yourself, "I'm fine where I am... please, do *not* consider me for a promotion, ever".
    Entirely too much focus on meetings, mood and feeling instead of actual results. Perception somehow morphs into reality instead of reality being reality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get with the times... You have a good technology stack, however your utilization of it is underwhelming.
    Meetings are fine, but, make them useful / effective. If not, simply eliminate the unnecessary meetings.

    Pros

    Depending on the team, your coworkers might be very nice. They are not slaving at the desks all the time, and happy to eat at the company's cafeteria. In my experience, I worked in an analytics role, and my team eat at the inhouse cafeteria quite often. It is like a school lunch. There are also a lot of corporate events, good place for networking or just enjoying yourself.

    People tend to be relaxed as well. By 5pm, no one is at their desk. In the summer, summer hours allow you to take half of Friday off, if you compensate it by working an extra hour on several other days.

    Cons

    As a big organization, HAVI has many teams and sometimes teams don't necessarily align on the same objectives. That's why there might be politics involved when it comes to who is doing what and when.
