    I worked at Harte-Hanks Shoppers as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great communication
    Smart and professional supervisors
    Decent pay

    My supervisors were fantastic at working with me as a remote contractor. They were easy to get a hold of and very good to work with on every project. I never felt confused on what my expectations or obligations were and they were keen on making sure I knew of things I had done well or politely yet critically pointed out ways to improve my writing to better match their desired outcomes.

    Cons

    I had an inconsistent workload, but I was a contractor to help with overflow writing assignments so that wasn't unexpected. My contract ended more abruptly then I would have liked as the company decided to take revise their writing needs.

    I worked at Harte-Hanks Shoppers full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Compensation is third world. Good benefits. If you can afford them Good training available to younger people. If your over 50 they try and weed you out after 3 years of service.

    Cons

    It's not about people ( employees) It's all about shareholders and the all mighty dollar. Promotions are few far and in between. This place is like the ghetto.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing is constant but change. Senior Management needs to roll with the changes. Quit laying off at the bottom and trim some of the fat at the Top.

    Pros

    good opportunity, good in house training in previous years

    Cons

    becoming a publicly traded company completely changed the culture
    slow to respond to the online aspects of the business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be more aware of what some of your leaders are actually doing day to day and how they interact with their direct reports, lots of favoritism, intimidation, improprieties

    I worked at Harte-Hanks Shoppers

    Pros

    Good place to work up until 3 years ago. The benefits and pay are fair better can be found elsewhere. Work from home.(which means work all the time).

    Cons

    First, let me say I quit after over a decade with this company. It was a good place to work until they put in new upper management 3 years ago.

      The Company let tons of people go. Leaving only a few managers, sales reps and very small support staff to handle all the business.
      Upper management is out of touch. They copy others, with no innovation. They are always behind the 8 ball.

    The only thing the Senior management seems to be good at is figuring else who they can lay off and or fire people. They are really, really good at this!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think it's hopeless. This is an old school company run by "good old boys club". The company and the board are controlled by family members. They only way to succeed is if it is sold to someone else with some actual vision.
