Company Culture

Management wants to be positive and tries to keep things open, but doesn't seem to really understand how.

Support from management

The leadership seems to be trying, but there are too many moving targets for employees to ever take them seriously. Management is far too willing to pass down non-nonsensical directives or make changes without letting the employees know.

Teamwork

A lot of people employed here flat out don't want to do their jobs for what we're paid. We all do the job anyway, and we'll help each other out thanks to the generally positive environment, but there's no great effort to work as a team that doesn't end up feeling like a joke.

Freedom to work independently

While management isn't great there's a definite effort to keep things fair.

Gender Equality

Almost everyone who was fired recently from the account I work in was a person of color or a woman. I'm left as one of several white men, and it's very strange. The company as a whole seems far more inclusive, but it's not great.

Attitude towards older colleagues

There's no reason to stay long term.

Job Security

You never feel safe in your job with so many moving targets and occasional talk about Harte Hanks losing accounts.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Employees want to do their jobs, and management has shown a willingness to move beyond scare tactics. Management just needs to keep focusing on positivity, and we need more free services if we're going to be paid like fast food workers. Free snacks would help, for example.

What I like about the company

The management seems to be trying overall, and the health plans are okay.

What I dislike about the company

Pay isn't great, not many benefits, moving targets and constant air of depression in the office hurts attempts to stay positive.
