    I worked at Hunter Douglas (US) full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and OT! But you aren't appreciated enough for the work that you do (if you are a great employee). Great opportunity to move into a lead position but that's it!

    Cons

    Bad raises...2% over all. Don't matter if you do a better job then the person sitting next to you. No appreciation towards the employees-management tries; but moral remains low.
    No advancement to supervisor/manager position unless you are favored!

    Advice to Management

    Quit favoring people. Take action and discipline people!!-Don't wait years to discipline people! Get to know your employees and the work that they do!

    Pros

    This company offers great benefits for the area and there are always events designed to boost the very low morale that employees experience here. People are generally nice and helpful as well.

    Cons

    Hunter Douglas is a rapidly growing company but unfortunately, upper management did a terrible job keeping pace with this expansion. I worked on the phones performing customer service and calls were in queue from start of day to finish. I was frequently rushed by management to get to the next call despite already averaging 60-70 calls a day. It didn't take long at all for the burn out to set in or for stress to spill over into my personal life.

    Advice to Management

    Hire Hire Hire or else you will always face high turnover and little return on the extensive training program this company deploys for new hires.

    Pros

    Benefits and pay at the salary level is good. Great place to move up in a company due to growth.

    Cons

    Hourly employees get paid very poorly and it causes a lot of turn over. Much of the organization is ran by women who struggle with authority complexes.

    Pros

    Hunter Douglas has a great benefits package. It is a healthy, stable company from the standpoint that it is a market leader and has substantial financial backing. It isn't a publicly traded company so doesn't have to conform to the demands of Wall Street shareholders.

    Cons

    It's been a great place to work but in the past few years there is a changing of the guards in upper management that has created a shift in the culture that isn't exactly on the + side. The notion that the company cares for it's people has faltered a bit which is unfortunate.

    Advice to Management

    The hierarchical style of management isn't going to attract and retain new and younger talent.

    Pros

    Great benefits, good job for a young adult trying to make it in the world. They train well and will advanced you according to your own accountabilty. If you go to school and plan to get a career that HD provides they will give tuition assistance. Good variety of different cultures in employees. Company picnics and perks that benefits familys of employees. No turnover rate. Comes with great training. Most employees been there for more the 15 years.

    Cons

    Like most companies they have a lot of politics. Current management in HBU is by far the lowest it will get through all the years i was there. Not really what you know, but who you know. Some employees only look out for THEIR best intentions in most cases, so consider that a warning. I had a great experience there until management ruined that for me.

    Advice to Management

    Some of the higher ranked Management is great. Plant managers in HBU is the worst management ive experienced in my life. They sure do know how to be fake when they need too. And know how to talk down to you when nobody is a witness.
