Many great people work here, but the company works people to death.

I have been working at HNI full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good benefits, lots of room for growth, beautiful office buildings, work can be interesting, good relationships with coworkers, ability to work with fellow professionals, can get exposure to international business and other sophisticated experiences.

Cons

The company is located in Muscatine, IA, where there is not much to do. The company does not respect a work-life balance and asks for a lot of hours out of its employees. The company is very short-term profit motivated.

    I worked at HNI (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company still is financially sound and still has a large market presence.

    Cons

    Too many acquisitions that fail. The company doesn't seem to know what to do with them except shut down facilities. High risk for you if HNI acquires your company. Two classes of employees; those in Muscatine who will keep their jobs if at all possible. If you're not in Muscatine, you are the first to go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need an actionable vision, not just general platitudes. Overhead costs are killing you; too many VP's and empires inside the company.

    Pros

    I've been here for 14 years and it's close to home

    They are out sourcing their software development. I'm a software developer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about your employees more.
