    I worked at Hayneedle full-time

    Pros

    Great company culture, friendly co-workers, excellent work-life balance

    Cons

    Regular layoffs every few years, no 401k match, salaries are low when compared to similar jobs in the market.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people to develop loyalty. Hayneedle has been turning into a revolving door company simply because other companies provide better packages.

    I worked at Hayneedle full-time

    Pros

    The culture was laid-back and fun. Casual dress. Don't have to punch-in to a time-clock. Some of the people are really great.

    Cons

    Micro-management is very high in some departments. Implemented a productivity tracking program when our department was already understaffed by 20%. Working from home is frowned upon. The "stars" of each department are the only ones given opportunities, even if they don't have the bandwidth. If you're not a supervisor's darling and don't dedicate your life to your work, you won't move up in this company. No...

    Advice to Management

    Distribute projects and opportunities equally. Study more progressive work policies and keep an open-mind.

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

    Pros

    Hayneedle has a very laid-back atmosphere, casual dress, great people, dynamic environment (if you're on the right team), the past few years we've had summer hours where we can leave at noon on Fridays, and great work life balance.

    Cons

    Pay could be slightly better and no 401k match.
