    I have been working at Humanscale full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I experienced a very friendly, well-organized, and nicely structured onboarding process that made my first few weeks of employment enjoyable. All critical questions and concerns were neatly and proactively addressed , and I was able to simply get to work with no worries. Weeks later, hiring my own team was a breeze. Having experienced the hiring process at other companies, the professionalism of the HR recruiting staff was shocking!

    Cons

    The factory and office areas are cramped. This company has outgrown its physical resources by at least 20%.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
