    I worked at HIC full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great place as far as products made and the people that work there.

    Cons

    Communication. It should start at the top and waterfall down and it does not.

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

    Pros

    Great health benefits (low premiums), 401K with matching, tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    technology outdated, manual and tedious accounting processes, compensation below industry standards

    Advice to Management

    Spend more money on improving IT systems to provide ways to streamline and automate accounting/financial processes. Many people in accounting/finance would have to work long hours due to outdated financial systems. Also, stop pinching pennies and compensate employees fairly and invest time and effort in boosting employee morale. A lot of employees seemed unhappy.

    Pros

    Good health benefits and 401k; relatively laid back working environment

    Cons

    Force Japanese work culture down your throat, management has no business in their respective group (they've just been in the company long enough), terribly boring work and completely unstructured. The accounting / financial reporting practices will ultimately land someone in jail.

    Advice to Management

    Fix your internal process, standardize something at this place...

    Pros

    Organized company, excellent staff, clean professional looking office. Top notch system in terms of office space/furniture. Admin assistants need more to do than just wait for the phone to ring and the mail to come in.

    Cons

    Admin assistants dont have enough work to do around the office. Morning duties are to change the lighting, start the coffee, change the night answering machine to the daytime hold machine. Then around noon you wait for the mailman. When he comes in you need about 30 minutes to go through the mail. After that you wait to leave at 5pm.


  5. "Good place to work"

    I worked at HIC full-time

    Pros

    The people are great. The work is challenging.

    Cons

    There were implementation problems with SAP which caused high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be better about work deadlines when implementation issues are there.

    Pros

    I can't think of any pros except that it was a job. Coworkers were borderline criminals, management bragged about loving to fire people, get in fist fights, smoke marijuana and more. Not sour grapes, I never knew that a company like this could exist in the healthcare market.

    Cons

    This company has no regard for human life, safety or the medical diagnostics. The management wants boxes sold and doesn't care if they are used or not. CEO stated that he will fire anyone and has within in first 30 days. Disgusting coworkers who smoke, put their shoes on an eating table and do not know basic hygiene.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the healthcare business. Stop putting your sales people in harms way and requiring them to harm their own reputation and patient care for the "company". Upgrade your vehicles, get a reputable reputation and get a new CEO and new middle management. Stop throwing your employees under the bus to save your skin.

    I worked at HIC full-time

    Pros

    Companies compensation and benefits are good.

    Cons

    Work life balance, hierarchy and management should enhance it's vision.

    Advice to Management

    Hierarchy has to be revised and followed up.
