I have been working at Herman Miller

Pros

They truly value people and are one the the classiest organizations I have ever worked for. They manufacture very high quality, however the furniture industry has unfortunately become extremely "commoditized".

Cons

They are going through a very difficult transition period trying to figure out where to go and what to do next. They are very "bean counter" driven at this point with not a single executive with a sales background and they are unfortunately losing their identity.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get sales leader on the Executive Leadership team. You are about to have a major brain drain - especially with your very disgruntled Strategic Account Management Team.

    I have been working at Herman Miller

    Pros

    Work/Life balance, competency of most co-workers, and overall reputation. Great products, great facilities.

    Cons

    political like any large company, not always inspiring - especially in current recession. calvinistic work ethic takes the pride, fun, and meaning out of work much of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    encourage pride and enthusiasm, not just nose to the grindstone. the recession has been tough, but it's not all about beating ourselves up. we have a lot to be proud of. remind us of it.
