I have been working at Herman Miller full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

One of very few companies that lives to be 100+ years old. Leadership that is agile, even when it comes to tough decisions. A centuries old institution that isn't afraid to reinvent itself.

Cons

The industry as a whole has suffered of late. Herman Miller has had to make some tough choices in order to stay in the game. Now, as business grows, departments find themselves short staffed and are finding management afraid to add necessary people.

Advice to Management

When charting the course for the future, don't forget about our past, and what has made us great.

    Pros

    Personal respect, environmental sustainability, carreer growth, pro growth and open to change.

    Cons

    Lack of a defined carreer develope program in sales.

    Advice to Management

    You need to sell employees better on the why you are making decisions and allow grace in the buy-in period rather than role a plan out with a "my way or the highway" attitude.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Good brand recognition. Investing in the company and not sending jobs out of the country.

    Cons

    Driven too much by shareholder profits. Dwindling benefit package is driving people out. All raises are offset or driven down by fees or rising health insurance premiums for poor coverage. Better options available for health insurance.

    Advice to Management

    Look at some better alternatives for our health insurance. Start looking again at the value your employees bring to the company.
