    I worked at Herman Miller full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The people. Only good thing about this place. You’ll meet hard workers and good family people. Other than that RUN!!!

    Cons

    Haha this place is a con. Gave them 10 years, they gave me unemployment. They don’t care about you or your family. Only the next promotion or bonus they can grab. Leadership takes more and more and then dumps the scrap onto you.

    Pros

    Great benefits like quarterly bonuses and corporate discounts. Health insurance through Aetna is a lot better than the one I came from. People that work here are very family friendly.

    Cons

    Company is based in Holland which means if you live in Grand Rapids its a half hour drive.They need better communication from upper management with their employees.
