Former Employee - Technical Support Specialist in Austin, TX

I worked at Harte Hanks full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Healthcare benefits were decent
Balance between home and work life

Cons

Strict and outdated timekeeping system
Management treated employees like children with badgering supervision
Company culture is outdated, similar to what a corporate leader was in the 1980s
Low pay, difference shifted to the "one percent" of the executive management
Boss was biased to male employees, I was the only woman on my team and was disrespected numerous times

Advice to Management

If you want to retain good talent, invest in paying your employees more. Also, try to catch up to modern corporate culture, it's 2012. Archaic companies are not favorable in the post Web 2.0 era.

    Pros

    The work life balance is good. Typical 9-5 office hours and not expected to be monitoring email and voice mails after hours and the weekends.

    Cons

    Leadership is chaotic and unfocused. They focus on the shiny new object over a clear objective and strategy. There is a lack of respect for and trust of employees. Management encourages discord among employees.

    Advice to Management

    Look to and accept the market dynamic rather than dismissing it and going with what worked for you 30 years ago. Have a strategy to achieve revenue and profitability rather than that being the strategy. Hire good, qualified people and don't be threatened by them.

    Pros

    Gain experience with big name clients such as Disney, Sony, Merck, etc.

    Cons

    Taking time off from work is frowned upon. Working late is the typical day and leaving on time is looked down upon. Even leaving on time the day before I left for my wedding was said to be a "huge inconvenience". No room for errors.
