    I have been working at Hearth & Home Technologies full-time

    Pros

    variety of jobs and experiences, large staff but very sociable, events and company celebrations, company involvement, variety of products and elements in work

    Cons

    People who don't care or think they're better than everyone, extremely inconsistent work schedule, very understaffed for the workload demanded, determined to constantly 'fix' things that are never broke often resulting in something broken being considered an improvement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work schedules that compliment the available crew, better compensation for the more heavily-worked and stressed positions

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Hearth & Home Technologies

    Pros

    Flexibility on professionalism. Good 401 and they're making money, doing well. Good for kids in their twenties, family members of the brand and sociopaths.

    Cons

    Crap pay. Redundant work. Yes men managers. Sole focus on profit with little regard to people. Terrible leadership from HR, marketing, sales and finance. Bad track record in the industry. Bullies and cheaters to be honest, a big budget from corporate owners, HNI is the only reason the brands under this company have survived.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop saying you're lean and give everyone a chance at six sigma certification. Don't make up your own programs, you're fake, not helping anyone.
