    I worked at Humanscale full-time (More than 3 years)


    Humanscale is a great place to work. Humanscale is not an easy place to work. Humanscale hires sharp, bright people and provides excellent training. While some might not be happy about it, Humanscale has high expectations. Think of it this way, if someone is hired to play on a professional sports team, they are expected to deliver results. If you come to work here, it’s a compliment on your abilities and potential, be prepared to perform. Humanscale products are world-class from a design and performance perspective, they are second-to-none. If you are willing to work hard, have fun and be rewarded…this is a great company to work for.


    Not for mediocre talent or those unwilling to work hard. Not for those who are afraid of competition, internally and externally.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to evolve, with both processes and products. Provide feedback to valuable employees. Maintain consistent levels of inventory.
