Company Culture

Really trying to break out of habits left over from the 70's and 80's

Internal Communication

Too many silos of communication and little cross-communication.

Suggestions for improvement

  • A lot of effort needs to happen to improve the communication and collective successes for the company to see better success.

What I like about the company

Great people work for Hickory Springs and there is a decent balance between work and fun.

What I dislike about the company

Complete blindsided communication when downsizing. My direct manager ceased nearly all communication with me for 3 to 4 weeks before I was released. They state that they are all in for their employees, but the reality appears that they are all in as long as the families make their money first. Very little re-investment in the company and capabilities. Processes are rapidly aging out without a strong plan for staying current with technology.
