It is a very respectful workplace. People are very genuine, kind and authentic in their business relationships.

HNI Corporation

Engineering

January 1970

This man is everything that is wrong with large companies. As a manager he was reprimanded for speaking down to and demeaning female employees yet he was somehow able to not only retain his job but get promoted to plant opperations manager. Since taking the helm of the HON CSO plant three managers have left and 7 engineers have left. I personally have not had a manager or even lead engineer to report to in 8+ months, leaving me and several other reporting to him directly. In that time I have never received any coaching oboe has he taken any time to learn about my background and qualifications. This led to several comments in meetings where he made backhanded comments about a project I was working on where he (without every looking at me) chastised the status of the project and my abilities, despite the project being on schedule. It wasn’t until he finally came to a meeting I set up (after he had failed to show for four previous meetings) that he understood the status and that I was qualified to develop this new process as I had souly run a large part of the affected department in my previous role. He has openly demeaned and talked down to several employees in front of the entire office. HNI as a whole is great but whatever you do stead clear of CSO & a manager.

Maternity leave in the US is buried under policies and legal jargon. I was lead to believe I had a full 26 weeks of paid leave for my first child. Sadly, I was called THE DAY BEFORE I had to return to work indicating that my maternity leave had ended. To add insult to injury, the company sent me a rectal thermometer the same week as a 'gift' for my newborn. Theyre archaic, lack innovation, and I strongly discourage young women in the industry to not EVER consider coming to this company. Its where jobs, careers, and talent go to die.

    6 paid / unpaid

    They will lie to you and say you have 100% pay up to 6 weeks and weeks 7-26 are at 70% of your pay. They will tell you to talk to their claims administrator, for more details. She will simply repeat that first sentence verbatim. You actually wont know how much time you are allowed off until AFTER you have your child and AFTER your doctor certifies the forms that she sends them. If youre unluckly like me, your HORRIBLE claims administrator will send these forms to your doctor 10 days before your 6 week prenatal followup appointment and then 3 days before your appointment they will call you and say that your uncomplicated vaginal delivery only warrants you 6 weeks of leave. They will also lie and say that HPE has this information documented, but when you call HPE HR to verify this information they will just send you back to administrator. I lost all faith in this company when I had less than 24 hours to find daycare for my child. I gave serious consideration to being a stay at home mom and SOBBED when I had to drop my baby off at daycare 20 weeks sooner than I had planned. Its heartbreaking to know that my daughter won't get to spend her first few months of life with her mommy....because HPE is too busy under-paying the 10 some odd women who are actually of child bearing age.

I haven’t experienced any sexual harassment, people here are generally nice and polite. If you have family and kids, they do respect that. However, the maternity leave policy is terrible compared to other tech companies, and the pay is really low, pathetically low. I haven’t seen anybody who got promoted ever since I started working here.

Do not work for this company. Carefully read the negative reviews on Glassdoor and a pattern of inauthenticity, discrimination, and unfairness emerges. The CEO pretends to care, but his actions are louder than words. For evidence, I would suggest all women to read the reviews on Glassdoor and Owler carefully, paying especially close attention to the negative ones as they are usually the ones that are from actual employees and not implanted by the company's HR department.

    Not punish whistle-blowers and those who offer objective, constructive, and evidence-based criticisms. Not play favorites with men employees and ignore the concerns from women employees. Actually improve diversity instead of just virtue-signaling with no follow-up.

    Plex offers flex hours for most positions, allowing you to arrange your schedule to fit your personal needs. Some positions, such as tech support, have more rigid hours due to the nature of the job.

It's a waste of time to try to talk about sexual harassment incidents; you'd need to stick to talking about sexual assault incidents, and then the conversation would still be pretty long. And of course, I couldn't even start with the daily discrimination and hostile work environment. Just google this place, and don't make the same mistake I did of thinking it's gotten better. Instead understand that what's been published is only the very tip of the iceberg, and at its core, this company is based on the exploitation of women of color.

There is a strong bro-culture at this company, with pretty well defined cliques. How well you do here has more to do with whether you befriend the right people or not, and less to do with quality or quantity of work.
