  1. "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.

    I worked at HIC full-time

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are average. Commissions, if actually paid, are good.

    Cons

    Management lacks clear vision and miscommunication from management from general manager to regional managers is rife with contention which spills over into the sales force. Marketing promotes inappropriate and heavy handed sales techniques. This company has very little if any respect in the market place. The GM is a stereotypical middle aged man with a huge ego and no respect for employees and is strange at the least.

    Advice to Management

    Go to a class to update your skills on human interaction and build loyalty. Stop gossiping about each other behind one another's backs. Be leaders, have integrity otherwise you will continue to have the revolving door and chase away your best employees and continue to have extremely low moral,

    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.

    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

    Pros

    Most people are very nice and trying to do the right thing.

    Cons

    Upper management values cutting corners rather than investing in employee satisfaction and product quality.

    Advice to Management

    Happy employees = increased productivity

    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    technology outdated, manual and tedious accounting processes, compensation below industry standards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 Many people in accounting/finance would have to work long hours due to outdated financial systems.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.

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

    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.

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

    Pros

    High level of expertise of the team member
    Team spirit at all level of the company
    Good energy
    Fair and empowered people

    Cons

    Don’t really see one inconvenient to work for this major company. Everything is good for me so, I didn’t want to find something just for finding something.

    Advice to Management

    Continue what your are doing, people are happy and motivation is here
