    Pros

    HARTING has a good team of hard working people. HR has several fun events year round to show how much they appreciation for their employees and all their hard work. Coworkers are like family. Managements concern to protect the health and safety the employees during the pandemic was and is phenomenal. They have been extremely flexible to family needs.

    Cons

    There are definitely some growing pains. But growth is needed not only for the company but for all employees to continue to have success.

    Rapidly growing and very fast-paced!

    Pros

    As a family-owned company they had a business operation that was safer and steadier than your typical publicly traded company, especially during 2020 where many companies were laying people off. Additionally, they were growing pretty rapidly. This overall growth has resulted in quite a bit of change - change in focus on growth markets, change in processes, change in structure, change in customer base. But this change was exciting and allowed for opportunities to grow, in terms of scope of role, newly created positions, and internal promotions.

    Cons

    The fast-paced environment isn’t for everyone. This phase of their business was communicated clearly during the interview process though. In a mid-sized company like HARTING, it’s great that good performance goes very well noticed and rewarded, but so goes noticed poor performance. If you’re looking to just go through the motions and be under the radar, this might not be the best place for you. If you’re looking for a challenge and opportunities to grow, then it will be the right place.

    Rapidly growing successful organization

    Pros

    If you are looking for a place to grow your skills and enhance your credentials while making an impact, HARTING is the right place to be. Also, if you bring some expertise, and strong ideas, there are opportunities to be had. The organization has several experts in their respective fields (Sales Operations, Supply Chain, Engineering, Innovation, Marketing, Sales…) so if you have the drive to want to learn and grow you have amazing colleagues to be mentored by, and bounce ideas off. The people at HARTING are another great aspect of the company. Nearly everyone there wants to win. This attitude comes from HARTING’s approach of investing in their employees who are hungry for growth and better opportunities.

    Cons

    No major complaints. All organizations have to make improvements in some areas at any given time. What I like about HARTING is that they take the time to recognize these needs rapidly and act on them.

    Low Employee Retention

    Aug 9, 2021 - Anonymous Employee in Elgin, IL

    Pros

    Generous benefit package including PTO.

    Cons

    Poor Senior Management Team. Newly implemented management changes have chased out an average of 1-3 great employees a week for several months straight. The Senior Management Team fails to rely on their assigned leaders. Instead, they insist on micromanagement as a part of their daily routine. Inadequate Training. No open door policy. HR is not an unbiased party to assist employees with internal matters. Confidential information regarding health or personal matters are not kept within Senior Management or HR. The office politics are suffocating to the rest of the staff. Constant fear of job security. Over the last 2-3 years the atmosphere has also turned extreme unprofessional. There is an unspoken internal club that resides within the front office. Without a membership, your daily contributions to the company's success will forever go unnoticed. Managers with poor behavior and ongoing history of treating employees poorly are rewarded with new promotional titles, and given a higher power and protection to behave badly. The morale within the office environment continues to drop each week with the continued poor behavior. How many great employees have to leave for a 'better opportunity' before someone tries to make some changes to retain the talent they initially searched for?
