I have been working at Harte Hanks full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

The board of directors has ensured that the company's balance sheet remains healthy - and delivers to the shareholders. Their debt is low. Their cash and assets has historically been managed well. They have attracted solid (if affirmation-inclined) management.

Cons

Trying desperately to squeeze every last dollar out of their Shopper division as it circles the print-media drain. A series of layoffs have taken the organization beyond sustainable levels. Current management is operating out of rear of retribution if they do not toe the line clearly set before them by upper management and the board.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to manage the business with a global perspective - keeping in mind that your people are a great asset. Also, figure out a way to exit, or transition the Shopper market. Otherwise, this historically-profitable segment of the business will erode to the point that it drags down the entire organization.

    Leadership has improved in the last couple of years. Employees are more empowered than they used to be, and senior management is becoming more proactive. Analytics becoming more sophisticated

    Cons

    Work culture a little chaotic. Still too many employees going through the motions and not being held accountable in some deparrments. Not enough investment in bringing in the best of the best

    Continue to invest in good people, it will be worth it! The difference between the strong and weak employees is wide
