    I worked at The HON Company full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    If you are fresh out of college, the solutions account group used to provide a great launching point to professional development.

    Cons

    Ever changing leadership, favoritism from the MCR and no clear vision for the future.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites and put people in positions with legitimate business experience for that role.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at The HON Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Product offering is broad with options at reasonable prices.

    Cons

    Didn't always value my opinion about how to best service my customers.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to people you bring into the organization from outside. A lot of internal promotions and moving people from one role to another without necessarily being qualified for the roles.

    I worked at The HON Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company is good for a first job out of college. You get to work with great people for the most part.

    Cons

    If you stay long enough they load you up with additional responsibilities and a greater workload without any significant increase in title or salary. Also, the location is less than ideal.

    Pros

    Very thorough training program. Coworkers and management always willing to help out. Very cooperative environment.

    Cons

    45 hour work weeks are the norm. Often, more time is required.

    Advice to Management

    Be up front about how much overtime is asked. Other than that, I think the department is ran pretty well.

    Pros

    Production workers are always open to you stepping in to learn, help

    Cons

    Too much turnover so you end up with managers that shouldn't be managing and very little direction on improving because you're just trying to keep your head above water.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on developing your biggest assets!
