    Growing company with good benefits and high demands

    Pros

    I get paid well, have great benefits and have had a great career path with 3 promotions in 5 years. HMA is growing fast with great product, great vision for the future, and I have no doubt they'll just continue in success.

    Cons

    There is a heavy workload with limited headcount and resources. There is also a high sense of urgency, which can create an extremely fast-paced work environment. This can be exhausting at times.

    Great Company, Great Team

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I really like being a part of a fast moving company that is evolving as a brand and enterprise. I'm very excited about the investments the company is making in hydrogen and electric vehicle mobility. Our sales are up and we have a really diverse leadership team. The CEO has brought in some really interesting and inspired talent and we are definitely evolving as a culture and business.

    Cons

    It's difficult to identify a clear career path, because there is a clash between the old and new culture. A lot of people have been here a long time and threatened by the new direction and energy in the company. Some colleagues can be quick criticize any kind of change and lack initiative. It's also very siloed and people do share information for fear of losing their job or relevance. I wish there was more of a team spirit, but I think it's because people are allowed to be mediocre or subpar and languish for years.

    Double Standardized

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good on site gym, company car lease, good benefits, good location

    Cons

    The rules don’t apply for all. Those who are liked get away with a lot more. Exceptions, raises, promotions. Hardly anymore goes from non management to management. You see management get promoted all the time. Then they hire from outside to fill the old management positions. Either people say forever or leave within a few years. Departments don’t get along at all. Morale is department based. Some people have it great while others hate their job. The Korean/American dynamic is the root cause of the double standardized. Also the heavy subcontractor usage creates an awkward dynamic within teams. People doing the same things but not getting the same benefits and probably pay. Also, the imputed income tax on the lease is real shady. Paying tax on a vehicle I legally don’t own?

    Great working level people but high burnout due to executive leadership

    May 17, 2021 - Anonymous Employee in Fountain Valley, CA

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Company recognizes talent. HR team is amazing and tries very hard to promote internally, raise morale and listen to the employees. Work is interesting and challenging, a lot of responsibility even at lower levels - opportunity to contribute and lead.

    Cons

    Too much focus on the short-term results, achieved at all costs even if it means people burn out and quit. Every day executive leadership invents a new crisis, so there is no time to step back and think/act strategically. Then they turn around and berate you for not being strategic enough and being too reactive. CEO doesn't trust his team - he even says that verbatim like it's a funny joke. It's not. Getting involved and micromanaging every decision. 6-8 hour meetings (not an exaggeration). Not enough working level people, but company keeps hiring more executives that try to do more and more with existing strung out staff.
