    I have been working at Harbor Compliance full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I came to this company tired of being underutilized and unchallenged in my old role. At Harbor Compliance, I feel like I’m at home. The people here are some of the brightest and most dedicated I’ve ever worked with. The whole company has a figure-it-out mentality and truly cares about giving their best effort, no matter what role they’re in. It’s a small company, so your impact is felt on a daily basis. The leadership team from the top-down care deeply not only about the business being successful but also about making sure that the people who work here feel like they are supported. They encourage people to talk about things that they think could be improved, so I had to learn to speak up more, and it has helped me grow.

    Cons

    If you’re not comfortable with hard work and rapid change, this isn’t the place for you. If you’re not able to speak up in a productive, candid way, you will probably not be as successful as others.

    Pros

    Exciting growth opportunities, being part of a winning team, excellence everywhere. The people here are absolute experts at everything they do. Our desire is to build a business where our purpose is not about making money. Success to us is helping our clients to allowing them to accomplish their mission by eliminating their compliance concerns.

    Cons

    So many more opportunities to help our clients than we can get to - what a great problem to have.

    I worked at Harbor Compliance full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    1. I liked my co-workers. 2. You can crack the interview quite easily by making big promises similar to those made by them to you. 3. The CEO might pop-up from nowhere at any time of the day and ask about how things are going, I don't know if that is a pros for you, not for me atleast! 4. They set an ideal example for companies you want to stay away from

    Cons

    1. Micro-managed company, you will almost feel the CEO has eyes on you 24/7 2. No health insurance, no bonuses, they might promise you big time but none fulfilled 3. Under staffed all the time, no hiring because they ran out of space, even after they got new space the situation is still same 4. They want to pay penny and expect $$ amount of work in return 5. No work-life balance, employees are burdened with tonnes of work and the list goes on...

    No real cons beyond wanting to have more people to continue to take on the ever-growing business.

    "Fast Growing Company!"

    I have been working at Harbor Compliance full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Exciting company to work for. Great team of professionals who care about doing a good job for our clients. Everyone works well together and is willing to do what it takes to get the job done. Owners really care about the employees and have continued to add new employee benefits as the company grows. Flexible work schedule and nice office building.

    Cons

    The pace of work can fluctuate greatly with the fast growth and need to hire more staff. Company will only hire top performers, which is a good thing, but it can take longer to find the right people.

    "Incredible potential hampered by executives"

    2.0
     

    I worked at Harbor Compliance

    Pros

    Harbor hires excellent people. The community of individuals that makes up the company is deeply positive and motivated. Whenever possible, people work together and genuinely support one another's growth. The work the company does is honest & useful.

    Cons

    Micromanagement & meddling by the CEO interferes with productivity, morale, and overall comfort. "Growing pains" can only account for so much. Harbor demands a complete buy-in from employees, promising flexible hours and room for advancement, but their tendency is to refuse these requests for good, bad, or no reasons at all. Departments regularly struggle with morale. HR is constantly swamped due to high turnover. Upper management is writing the book as they go, rather than having a plan for their exponential growth. Beware promises of future advancement and pay increases based on an increase in current duties.

    I worked at Harbor Compliance full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I enjoyed my co-workers. I was actually able to learn quite a bit about this niche industry

    Cons

    The leadership sets completely unrealistic expectations, fails to communicate clearly and transparently, and the organization seems to have no real direction. The way people are managed lacks professionalism and the company is clearly still trying to find its way when it comes to assessing performance. The best thing I learned while at Harbor Compliance is what 'not' to do when it comes to managing a team.
