    I worked at Haworth full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great people (worker bees). Beautiful environment and nice cafeteria for all employees.

    Cons

    Leadership is egocentric and and does not care about the actual product- only how fast they can churn it out... any any cost

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the value the founder had- care for your workers! Make quality a priority.

    Bonuses, and that’s pretty much it

    Pros

    Access to online training modules.

    Cons

    Salaries are based off of corporate location (Michigan) regardless of state where an open position is offered.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees according to their state’s cost-of-living amount. You’d be able to retain more talent that way.

    I have been working at Haworth full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits are good, relatively standard for a company this size. Most people are fun to work with. Beautiful campus, if you work on the tour route. Environmentally mindful. Generally a good company to work for. There are definitely opportunities to further education, advance in your career, and make horizontal moves throughout the company.

    Cons

    They are VERY bureaucratic and slow to change. They are still learning the importance of fighting for employees to keep and to recruit, so turnover is high and at the pace they move it is nearly 6 months to a year before a member is replaced. Pay is not competitive- not even for truly valuable employees and team members. The executives are very out of touch, most metrics are simply driven (at any cost) to look good...

    Advice to Management

    Executives- get in touch with how your manufacturing actually runs, not what it should be or what you have assumed. HR- loosen the purse strings and be willing to pay for valuable people! A 2% raise is not appropriate for someone who exceeds expectations time and time again! Open up to new college campus recruitment methods and get the company name out there. Students don't want to bother with a company they know...

    I have been working at Haworth full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The people you work with are incredible overall, great values, spirit and work ethic. The family values are still held in high regard by many.

    Cons

    As with any large company their are people who do not embody those same characteristics aligned with the core company values.

    Advice to Management

    Look for ways to expedite the process for those who do not embody company values, to ensure the top talent is able to continue to perform.
