    Pros

    Great learning experience. They treat you like an equal, and not just that you're an entry level employee.

    Cons

    Many teams operate very differently, and your experience largely depends on your team.

    Pros

    Great pay, decent benefits, talk of recognizing culture problems

    Cons

    Inability to communicate above your manager, managers will attend culture training and then not even 5 minutes into the next meeting will belittle their most senior. The company overall needs to diversify, your 1 big client is obviously looking to diversify. Takes forever to do anything that requires a decision, mgmt avoids decisions and confrontation at all costs.

    I worked at HAVI full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits! 4 months of summer hours, daily lunch credit, health insurance more affordable than many employers. Smart, nice people to work with.

    Cons

    Short sighted objectives for growth. Not committed to new business development. Lack of executive leadership so senior managers do what they think without support creating disjointed efforts which is confusing internally and externally.

    I worked at HAVI full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Relaxed environment full of smart, well-paid, easy-to-befriend people who enjoy a beautiful office, good work-life balance, fantastic benefits, and plenty to do. Yes HAVI is “offshoring to Poland for cheap labor,” but there’s more to the story: they’re delayering, joining SME & Account Management roles, and refocusing on global growth. Will it work? Who knows but at least they’re trying something. It’s hard for anyone to look in the mirror and say “I’m not being accountable,” so it may take a little time to see real progress from leadership, but I bet they’ll get there eventually.

    Cons

    Instead of developing genuine (honest) client relationships with long-run services, some department’s “growth strategy” focused on short-run gimmicks for quick revenue with misleading & easy targets. As a service began to fail, someone would heroically arrive with a new (equally ineffective) offering to save the day, then they’d get awarded or promoted and transferred elsewhere. Rinse and repeat. Over time useful solutions were replaced by layering, finger-pointing, disengagement, and favoritism. There are no “bad-guys,” it’s not a big conspiracy, it’s just the age-old story of an unaccountable culture fostered by a lack of vision. Leadership seems aware and are trying to address the issues but until they figure it out you’ll either get thrown under the bus a lot or be one of the throwers.

    I worked at HAVI full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great Benefits. Wonderful building and offices.

    Cons

    Does not truly have a truly open door policy. There is really no room for failures hence it hinders creativity or lowers the chances someone submits or presents new ideas.

    Pay, benefits, flexible work schedule and great office.
