    Pros

    I've always enjoyed working here but it seems like the safety and overall culture is improving year over year. There is a feeling that the people are most important now, rather than the product. We now get 8 days notice for Saturday work and management seems interested in our feedback.

    Cons

    Planning and forecast management needs some work. I see leadership trying to explain why we are working 9 hr days and saturdays after just having a cut friday, and you can tell that they are frustrated too

    Advice to Management

    Better forecasting models

    Pros

    HNI has an awesome culture. Members are encouraged to provide honest feedback and make a real impact. The sky's the limit as far as career growth goes - HNI is very willing to take reasonable career advancement risks on members who prove they can think like owners and add value. There are many career opportunities due to the number of operating companies that roll up under HNI. The comp is competitive and the benefit package (especially healthcare and retirement benefits) are very generous.

    Cons

    Sometimes, because HNI is so decentralized (many operating companies), it can be challenging to get traction on new initiatives. A healthy appetite for change is there throughout the corporation, it just can be difficult to get quick consensus on the approach to organizing and deploying change throughout the decentralized organization.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the emphasis on good culture and business growth going!

    Pros

    Great people from the top down. Member culture is tied together with company profit sharing and overall good company benefits. Split and Focus business units are keenly focused on their target customers and marketplace, product development, and organizational structures are aligned to perform well. Company is a force in the mid market.

    Cons

    Split and focus business structure is highly challenged to move up market to larger, national and global customers. Faced with internal politics, compensation, and organizational structure issues to bring together all companies to pursue larger accounts.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to develop members and offer growth and development opportunities

    Pros

    While working in the IT Department I had great gratification that I was able to help other people with their everyday problems. The production personal and office personal were great to work with.

    Cons

    Very stressful at times but that was all part of the job. I believe some people were probably paid more then they were worth, based on job performance.

    Advice to Management

    I have no complaints what so ever about my boss or supervisor. They were both great to work with and very good at listening and giving tips/advice on the job.
