    Pros

    HNI culture is very welcoming. There is a lot of opportunity to grow within the company and challenge yourself

    Cons

    The headquarters is in a very small community

    Advice to Management

    You are exposed to senior leadership. As an intern, I was able to present my findings to several Vice Presidents and the CFO.

    Pros

    Give you lots of work and responsibility as an intern.
    The culture of the company is great.
    The leadership is helpful and the lunch n learns from MCR (HR) is good.
    Lots of things for interns to do.

    Cons

    Location. But close to Iowa City and Quad cities so it is not that bad.
    Sometimes miscommunication in management so as an intern I had nothing to do.

    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
