I worked at HNI full-time for more than a year

Pros

Friendly workplace, ample opportunity to improve skills and grow beyond initial skills. Great training for entry level employee.

Cons

Culture is dated, not a lot of younger employees, but they are actively working on this. Also, many employees live out of town meaning fewer locals to make friends with. Depending on the team, extremely complex and old systems to support. Very confusing for entry level employees. Especially when on call.

    Used to be a good place to work. However, the company is going in a totally different direction.

    I have been working at HNI full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I've been here a long time and I know the business.

    Cons

    The legacy system is being replaced with a third-party, packaged software. Not sure where my place in the new environment will be. Communication is lacking in the direction of the department. People have started leaving the department in droves. During the recession, the department had a wage freeze. Now that business is picking up, we would like be compensated for our service during the recession. Raises seem to be worse than before the recession. We are asked to take on more responsibility with no compensation or additional title. People are getting fed up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees. Treat them with respect and compensate them for their dedication on making the company profitable.
