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

    Pros

    My Team Leader lead by example - he was a pleasure to work for. He was mostly all business and he could also be fun. He pulled the team together. Standards were always high and he held everyone accountable; no exceptions.

    Cons

    Pay and turnover: When a large company (such as Haworth) has a staffing company on site (which they do) it's a red flag! Just realize there will be significant turnover, so keep those resumes and interviews active.

    Advice to Management

    You lost ANOTHER hard worker with a great attitude and perfect attendance who is now making money for another employer :)
    Wake up!

    I worked at Haworth full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great designs. Brand recognition, global organization

    Cons

    There is no opportunity for advancement unless you are located in the corporate offices. Salary is well under average for position and grade. Company is very centralized and positions are ripped apart and changed weekly. Just when you know what you're responsible for, they change it and this happens over and over again. This happens particularly in the supply chain area.

    Advice to Management

    Take a little more interest in the individuals doing the job. There are many in the manufacturing facilities that go above and beyond everyday to make sure product goes out and that the customer receive their orders on time. Stop worrying about meetings, 5Y's, and let employees do what they do best. You should also take note of the people who have been in one area for a long time and have completely done a 180 to get out of that area. That should tell you something about your management staff.
