Pros

Few. The co-workers were really nice and friendly. They had microwaves.

IT was very knowledgeable but overworked due to there only being two of them.

Cons

Lots.

If you are not a friend of the boss, there is no chance for a promotion. It is all about favoritism even if you are the best at your job and prove it month in and month out.

Supervisors were not prepared for their role. They complained all the time about all the work they had to do, even though their work consisted of a few phone calls and some PTO time plotting.

Outsourcing was rampant. In a span of two days, they laid off 8 people so they could keep the people in Manilla for cheaper labor.

They decided to save money by getting rid of eating utensils. Really.... Eating utensils were the first thing to go?...

If you needed to use the bathroom, you had to plot that time and if you went over the allotted time for "personal time" (8 minutes), you got an incident on your file.

    Pros

    The best reason to work at Harte Hanks is because it's a job and the people that go through what you go through there. You can relate.

    Cons

    The supervision sucks and they only enforce the rules and only certain rules when it comes to favoritism. I was a lead on the floor doing great and upholding the company standards knowing and performing my job well when I was replaced for someone who could supply the person above my supervisor will pills to get high on. I thought it was a work place but for some it's just a cover up.

    Advice to Management

    It may be about who you know but what does it benefit to know someone if they are hurting your company more than helping it.

    Pros

    Great people on a sinking ship.

    Cons

    Managment years ago lost sight of the fact that this company was built by servicing small to medium size businesses. They now treat the local accounts very poorly and only concentrate on major accounts so that they might hit next weeks or months budget. The local accounts have been mistreated for years now and the piper is due.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. You have alot of dead weight middle managers.
