    I have been working at Herman Miller part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Herman Miller has an inclusive company culture. Everyone is welcomed and given the chance to be innovative with their different ideas. If you want to make a change you can express your opinion to management and they will give you the support you need to succeed.

    Cons

    The company as a whole is very political but that seems to be the norm for West Michigan companies. The coffee in the break room isn't the greatest , but you can always count on the tea. It's hard for me to come up with any cons for this company. Over, this this an awesome West Michigan based company.

    Advice to Management

    Bringing more women into upper management would be nice to see. As a women, I do feel fully sported by my work team leader.

    Pros

    It's been my experience that the company does a really good job of recognizing and rewarding those who put their heads down and work hard.

    Cons

    It can take some time to get change implemented. It's not to say the company doesn't like or promote change when necessary, but it's a big ship to turn and some of the processes have been in place for decades.
