Pros

It is a very large stable company. They have health beifits, profitsharing. And there are still a lot of great people who work there.

Cons

Currently poorly managed, with respect to human recources. They just don't care much, if any, about the people that work for them. HON used to be more about being a good place to work, and employees were treated as, what they called "Members" Now the term "Members" is more like a slap in the face. Because being a member of somthing would indicate that you were part of somthing that you felt you belong to, and possible might have an influence in helping the cause of the company. Now people are treated as if it was their fault the company might be experiencing financial difficulty because of the economy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Most people understand that the economy is bad, and that we need to cut corners and raise productivity, but that is no excuse to treat people with no respect. Let us help. Acknowlege the fact that that "you" the management don't have all the answers.

    I worked at HNI full-time

    Pros

    People are excellent / managers are good with a great work ethic / the business units; Allsteel, Hon, etc. are solid businesses. Rapid Continuous Improvement culture is

    Cons

    The biggest obstacle to progress is the CEO, Askren. An individual who shows no respect to people, bullies them and acts condescending. He rules by fear and position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be willing to stand up to tyranny. HNI will be better when the CEO is retired, and people are again truly valued.
