    I worked at HAVI full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Relaxed environment full of smart, well-paid, easy-to-befriend people who enjoy a beautiful office, good work-life balance, fantastic benefits, and plenty to do. Yes HAVI is “offshoring to Poland for cheap labor,” but there’s more to the story: they’re delayering, joining SME & Account Management roles, and refocusing on global growth. Will it work? Who knows but at least they’re trying something. It’s hard for...

    Cons

    Instead of developing genuine (honest) client relationships with long-run services, some department’s “growth strategy” focused on short-run gimmicks for quick revenue with misleading & easy targets. As a service began to fail, someone would heroically arrive with a new (equally ineffective) offering to save the day, then they’d get awarded or promoted and transferred elsewhere. Rinse and repeat. Over time useful...

    Advice to Management

    Middle: You get a bonus that individual contributors do not, start earning it – put your neck on the line by taking a position. Try the phrase “I think we should do [insert anything at all].” People can’t help you achieve your goals if you don’t tell them what they are. Upper: You need a Vision. Everyone in the company should be able to explain, in their own words, how their leaders plan on growing the company. It’s...

    Pros

    Great Benefits. Wonderful building and offices.

    Cons

    Does not truly have a truly open door policy. There is really no room for failures hence it hinders creativity or lowers the chances someone submits or presents new ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Help to improve innovation in the team by fostering a creative environment.

    I have been working at HAVI for less than a year

    Pros

    I am getting a lot of great hands on experience and my manager is great. I recommend interning at HAVI. The intern program is very well organized with lots of fun events to attend with fellow interns.

    Cons

    No downsides I can think of right now. There is a lot of construction in the area around HAVI right now so the commute is longer than usual but that will get better as the construction finishes up

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. The intern program is very well run.
