    I worked at Hain Celestial full-time

    Pros

    -Generally, a ton of opportunity at a growth company built through a series of small company acquisitions
    -Process and analytics improvement is welcome, encouraged, and rewarded
    -Driving results and producing quality work is rewarded
    -Relatively flat organization with leadership exposure if you know your stuff
    -Talent is a major drive at the organization, they are upgrading
    -Supportive leadership team that shows care for their employees
    -great people to work with!

    Cons

    -if you seek to join an organization with very defined processes and a relatively repetitive day to day job, this is probably not your place. Some see this as a con and some a pro
    -this is a dynamic industry, you have to be comfortable with change. Pro and con
    -the amount of work to be done is not for the faint of heart, be prepared to work

    Advice to Management

    -build the culture, what does it mean to work at Hain, everybody should be able to elaborate
    -continue to reward your teams and ensure there are clearly communicated expectations
    -build a pipeline of talent with development and career pathing incorporated into a plan
    -thank you for the positive change over the last year, you are moving in the right direction!!

    I worked at Hain Celestial full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good Salary, Good Products, Good People, & overall good working conditions, good health benefit package

    Cons

    Fail to live up to paying earned bonuses and discontinued stock grant program without communicating to employee. We only found out when we asked and then no reason for the discontinuance was given, but the CEO got both his bonus and stock. Many managers are the micro management type

    Advice to Management

    Learn to live up to commitments on bonuses and stock

    Pros

    Great Products and summer work hours. Leave at 230

    on Friday provided you make the time up in the week

    You work with some great people.

    Cons

    Lack of strategic direction, very short term outlook.

    Workload is nuts but you learn a lot but never caught up.

    This place is lean to the core and that is how it is. They always want to hear about what you need but do absolutely nothing about it. Hence the crazy turnover upwards of 30 percent.

    Unless you need a job, don't leave the one your are in to work here.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees.

    Turnover is crazy and it must stop - you are either not telling people what it is really like or you are hiring the wrong candidates.

    You may have issues with certain managers. Remember for the most part people leave managers not companies...address the issues don't ignore them or this turnover will never stop. Then you won't be surprised when people leave....constantly

    I have been working at Hain Celestial full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hain is an organization that values creativity and innovation, and its employees have an opportunity to make a lasting impact. The office environment nurtures ingenuity with open work spaces and collaborative meeting opportunities. Culture feels entrepreneurial in that employees are responsible for understanding and contributing to all aspects of growing the company’s brands. Employees are provided with the tools and structure to succeed, but are expected to collaborate cross functions and not let excuses / hurdles get in the way of contributing to the organization’s success. Hard-working, effective and innovative employees are rewarded with upward mobility.

    Cons

    If candidates are looking for ultra-structured and siloed job functions, Hain may not be the right fit. As mentioned, employees must appreciate and be able to thrive in a flexible, forward thinking, fast paced setting.

    Advice to Management

    I'm proud that management has kept its entrepreneurial spirit amongst tremendous market growth and success. CEO takes interest in product development and can often be spotted tasting new innovation ideas around the office.

    Pros

    Hain has the strongest brands in the organic and all-natural space. There is a ton of opportunity to think outside the box, test and learn and work with passionate people.

    Cons

    Employees need to be self-starters --not a good fit for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work on making Hain a great place to work!

    I have been working at Hain Celestial full-time

    Pros

    Potential resume booster if you can keep your sanity long enough.

    Cons

    I have yet to meet a single employee who truly believes this is good company to work for.

    There are 3 kinds of Hain Celestial employees:
    -Those who have been placed into roles they are not qualified for, and stay with the company just long enough to boost the resume. Due to being under qualified, they are very publicly unable to perform their job successfully.

    -Those who have been told or believe they may be put into one of these fast track positions they are not qualified for and wouldn't be hired to do at any successful company.

    -Those who are simply stuck due to life circumstance.

    Everyone who works for this company, even if they don't admit it, knows its a terrible place to work. Turnover at all levels of leadership is astounding.

    Bonus? That's a laugh.

    Advice to Management

    Sell. Slow down the acquisitions and organize what you have now. Pay bonuses.

    Global Leader in Natural Organic, Founder led encouraging entrepreneurial thinking, passionate employees & tons of growth and development opportunities in a super cool office in New York

    Cons

    None - some may find the fast paced nature of the business to much however it is what makes Hain so special and candidly it is also creates the positive energy and excitement amongst the teams!

    Advice to Management

    Continue the energy behind a refined business model focused on the core brands, the customer and the consumer alongside the efforts being made to acknowledge that your employees are one of your biggest assets!
