I worked at HAVI full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Depending on the team, your coworkers might be very nice. They are not slaving at the desks all the time, and happy to eat at the company's cafeteria. In my experience, I worked in an analytics role, and my team eat at the inhouse cafeteria quite often. It is like a school lunch. There are also a lot of corporate events, good place for networking or just enjoying yourself.

People tend to be relaxed as well. By 5pm, no one is at their desk. In the summer, summer hours allow you to take half of Friday off, if you compensate it by working an extra hour on several other days.

Cons

As a big organization, HAVI has many teams and sometimes teams don't necessarily align on the same objectives. That's why there might be politics involved when it comes to who is doing what and when.

    I worked at HAVI full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    HAVI Group owns several companies including HAVI Global Solutions, The Marketing Store and HAVI Global Logistcs. Employee benefits are above average and they encourage education. Salaries are generally market competitive, but see CONS below on long-term job security.

    Cons

    Overall, the company pays fairly and depending upon your position, might pay over market, but in the past 4 years, the only way the can balance the salaries versus client compensation is they've been laying off many of the experienced and higher paid staff. Many people seem to "move onto other opportunities" when in reality they are pushed out.

    Advice to Management

    Why bother doing exit interviews when you do nothing with the feedback about poor management that is still with the company.
