Its not a bad place to work for if your dedicated to the company
Quality Assurance Test Technician (Former Employee) – Westlake, OH – January 31, 2016
Work wasn't to bad however management would tell you that you are doing great one week, then the following week tell you that you need a lot of improvement. They also stress that you are "Happy" to come to work and if you do not appear to be "happy" all the time, you are talked to about it.
Good starter job for new college graduate but not for seasoned professional
Technical Support Analyst (Former Employee) – Westlake, OH – December 28, 2013
They say that their employees work hard and play hard, but the work hard part is a huge understatement.
The customers are fantastic and the work is very interesting. Attending training classes to further knowledge and obtaining Microsoft Certifications are a must. Working as a team is a must and co-workers are very welcoming and friendly. They provide several free items, like pop, candy, and spontaneous contests in the atrium, and on-site amenities that make life a little easier, like hair cuts, massages, travel agent, dietician, dry cleaning, car washes, etc.
For a college graduate, looking for that first job to get real world experience, this is a fantastic place to start. For those with experience, it is tempting to take a job there based on reputation that it is a great place to work, but this reputation is not enough to make up for the below industry standard pay.
Many opportunities to learn, interesting work, friendly co-workers
Management in certain departments, sweat shop work for below industry pay, advancement based on if you drink the kool-aid
This was the type of place with a huge red slide in the atrium. It was a very free working environment. We had huge projects but as long as you made your goals you were left alone. I worked as a testing developer. Basically I made sure that any new code that was written addressed the client's requirements. I also tested to the software's functionality within existing code.
Very Creative Atmosphere, Improved my coding skills
Informal, friendly atmosphere with emphasis on teamwork and providing employees with everything they need to do their jobs
IS Documentation Specialist (Former Employee) – Westlake, OH – May 18, 2013
Hyland management in general, and my managers in particular, were very good at setting goals and then enabling me to accomplish them. Although I reported status and progress regularly, no one attempted to micromanage my performance. I worked from home, so this was a blessing, because I could focus on what I needed to accomplish.
Hyland also excels at offering training. I took advantage of several internal training opportunities, and often noticed that colleagues were being sent to external courses.
My co-workers were almost all affable and responsive to my requests for information and assistance. The only area where I frequently faced difficulties was in getting others to review my work for errors and omissions.
Casual atmosphere with many fun activities, management is focussed on pleasing its customers and helping its employees.
Some times what you see is not what you get ! Smoke screen
Child Enrichment Center Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Westlake, OH – March 18, 2013
The most enjoyable part of my job had to be interacting with the children and their families. I love working with the public ! So having good co-workers is very important to me so that we have a strong team of employee's. I have learned alot of computer skills. At Hyland they always promoted the one team therory. Some departments were not treated like we were all on the same team. But bench player's . One example is that only one department out of the whole company had to take a manditory hour lunch break with out gettitng paid. Witch would have been fine except all of the rest of the company got repaid back 30 mins of their lunch breaks, per the employee's manual. One team? Middle management at Hyland need some beefing up, management classes. For the most part I loved my job at Hyland. I loved going to work very day. Hyland just got to big too quickly and the middle managenent is very weak. Making life at Hyland very different now a days !
good health care but in 2014 the heath care will change and not be as good.
I felt that I could not go to management with any questions and get an answer that helped me. I felt that I had good teammates and co-workers around me but the management side of my job never allowed me to be comfortable at my position.
