    No opportunities, micromanagement, toxic work environment.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsGood benefits; health insurance, dental, etc. HR staff are helpful when they're not covering for workplace harassment to avoid a law suit. Otherwise, not a lot of pros to be had at HFC.

    ConsEverything else. Underpaying employees, treating them like dirt, having them jump through ridiculous bureacratic hoops. Toxic reviewing with unsubstantiated claims from third parties (not supervisors or peers, just mystery people named to attempt to lend credibility. Managers make a rule today, change it tomorrow, and stand over your shoulder everyday. No technological advancement. Penny wise, pound foolish operations.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
