    Pros

    Attractive Galleria location. Frequent "Ordering-In" of dinner (explained below), and jean fridays.

    Cons

    Extremely high turnover in the Accounting / Finance area (especially Corporate office). No work life balance. Unfortunately, accomplishment is measured on how many hours you put in (not the actual work performed). Dinner is ordered in just about every night and it's a big deal if you leave before 7pm (this is considered early). Employee morale is as low as I've witnessed at any organization of this size. Most people who are still hanging around are just waiting for their share grants to vest before they bolt. The joke of the place is that it's akin to Shawshank Prison (yes the movie). Existing employees actually joke when they see new hires join the team as they take bets on how many weeks the new person will last. **Last note - the financial systems are disjointed relics of the past. Running legacy software that is over 15 years old. It's really nothing short of a circus. If you are a candidate thinking of joining HHC, join at your own risk. My advice would be to make sure you ask them very detailed questions during the interview (and don't accept an offer until they let you interview with a couple peer level employees). Ask them pointed questions about the high rate of turnover (i.e.make them explain and defend it). Hope I can save some bright candidates from making a career move they'll soon regret.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep walking over your employees and you will cement the reputation as a bad place to work.

    Pros

    conveniently located in a beautiful area

    Cons

    Corporate cultural push for the 24/7 work commitment. Lack of internal opportunties. Lack of communication and direction at all levels...very much a figure out as you go environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work/Life balance isn't a gimmick...it's what people need to perform at their best!
