    I have been working at H5 full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great work life balance.
    Excellent leadership with smart growth strategies.
    Committed and talented co-workers.
    Management transparency into company revenue and health.

    Cons

    Not well known in the industry.
    Does not provide collection or managed review, which can deter some clients.
    No international offices.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Majority of the employees are long-timers (or lifers!), which speaks to the company culture and leadership. People work hard, not because they're forced to, but because they care.

    I worked at H5 full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A great company that walks their values. Respect (client and co-worker), Professionalism & Expertise. It's expected and delivered. If these are not your core values don't bother to apply. You will be involved in engagements that are current news and the services provided really matter. Some days you will be exhausted but always feel your efforts were important.

    Cons

    I was a remote employee and collaboration with the teams I needed to be involved with was fine but missed the coffee room chit chat. (Not so much company specific rather just a remote position)

    Advice to Management

    Be creative vs. scientific - for marketing.

    Pros

    Company is willing to invest in their employee.

    Cons

    Sales and marketing is on the conservative side.

    Advice to Management

    They should expend their services beyond legal industries.

    I worked at H5 full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    None I can think of.

    Cons

    Read all the reviews. I think there's a clear indication that H5 is trying to bury negative reviews. There's no way someone wrote a review the same day as an incredibly negative one got posted.

    I worked at H5 full-time

    Pros

    Not a single one ever.

    Cons

    Manager clearly played favorites due to living with one of his employees + their wives being married.

    Team member threatened to assault me unprovoked.

    A new team member started and on his first day and quit after seeing how our team was managed and treated each other.

    Literally no documentation and you will be berated if you don't have knowledge specific to the company.

    Running 20 year old tech.

    Requires working once a month for 20ish hours straight during an over night stay to the data center.

    Very friendly and personable culture!
    CEO gave a speech on diversity that was personal and heartfelt

    New employee training needs a little improvement

    Advice to Management

    Don't change your leadership by example and integrity. I am proud to be aboard and following your vision

    I have been working at H5 full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Collaborative co workers. WFH is an option. Benefits pretty competitive. Workforce comes from diverse backgrounds.

    Cons

    Sometimes highly educated people appear aloof. People can walk right past you without saying anything. A little too quiet sometimes. When on PTO, you should be on PTO to re-charge.

    Advice to Management

    401k Matching is pitiful. Have Regional meetings so remote workers get face time.
