    I worked at HAVI full-time

    Pros

    Great teams, lots of collaboration, great benefits, meal voucher ($4), good suburban location, flexible working arrangements

    Cons

    Very slow moving management who prefer to stick with older technologies, slow to move to agile, attempting to be a consulting organization without the right people or processes, very little data management, no 360 reviews, most managers manage up, scapegoat mentality, too many consultants, somewhat toxic environment for growth, only good if you are in the circle.

    Advice to Management

    Look at industry standards and best practices when it comes to technology and data and take some risks besides only investing in materials.

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

    Pros

    Great co-workers, decent benefits & pay

    Cons

    Leadership is totally out of touch with the actual organization & never descend from their ivory towers. Little to no upward mobility, if available they'll dangle it in front of you for years. Stuck in a corporate environment not dissimilar to "Office Space". Also, expect to work every weekend & night. All culture in the company totally disappeared when new ownership/management took over.

    I have been working at HAVI full-time

    Pros

    At HAVI, the people are the best part of the experience. From senior executive, to first level, HAVI has some of the friendliest and most collaborative people I've ever worked with!

    Cons

    The work day and work loads can get very heavy. HAVI's slogan is "Deliver the Promise" and we always do. This sometimes means long hours on conference calls in 3 different geographic time zones.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to appreciate the hard work of your very passion employees. Employees LOVE our company.
