    I have been working at Hunter Industries full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Awesome work/life balance. Great company culture. Offers competitive education reimbursement opportunities and training.

    Cons

    The only down side to working for a great company, there's not a lot of turnover. Room for advancement can be challenging.

    Pros

    Great company and great people! Really enjoyed working here. The company truly cares about its employees and is a top notch employer.

    Cons

    Like any privately owned family corporation, there are some internal politics and it takes a while to get certain things approved.

    I worked at Hunter Industries full-time

    Pros

    - Great culture. Employees are happy to the point of arousing suspicion. I had never been at a company with employees that smile so much before working at Hunter.
    - President/CEO honestly seems to genuinely care about employees.
    - Gym on campus (San Marcos HQ).
    - Excellent holiday party.
    - Profit sharing.
    - Excellent 401(k) program.

    Cons

    - I didn't feel that salaries were quite as competitive as they should be. Profit sharing is considered part of one's salary, which shouldn't be the case.

    Advice to Management

    Hunter is honestly doing an excellent job at keeping their employees happy. My only recommendation to management is to consider raising base salaries and possibly doing away with (or decreasing) profit sharing.

    I worked at Hunter Industries full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Secured 40 hours a week (no overtime) good benefits and good profit share by the end of the year, own gym for employees that's great (thanks).

    Cons

    LOW PAY salary for molding employees. Big company that is growing quick and don't appreciate the main head of the company (molding) new management don't have idea of how molding runs.

    I have been working at Hunter Industries (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hunter as a whole seems like a fantastic place to work no matter what department you are in. I see happy employees here, and I see people staying for a much longer time than what I've seen at any other company I've worked for.

    Speaking specifically of the software development (mob programming) department, it is absolutely extraordinary. It is a phenomenal situation where you can learn and grow a ton, and with a strong focus on quality and software craftsmanship, you will likely write your very best code. Every developer serves as both mentor and mentee on a constant basis. There is a strong focus on leveling-up every single person on the team. I cannot possibly recommend any other company higher.

    Cons

    No work place is a complete panacea, but Hunter Industries comes closer than I ever thought possible. Mob programming is certainly not for everyone, so you should consider that aspect carefully. If you want to grow as a developer, I can't imagine a better paradigm in which to do so.

    Advice to Management

    The current director of software development is an incredible asset. I sincerely hope that upper management realizes how strong he is at keeping developers happy, motivated, and ultra-productive, and recognizes him appropriately for his contributions.
