Great product, well known brand, amazing research and resources, freedom to create your own approach to sales. Management is very invested in the companies success, and thus your success as well. The compensation structure creates a warm, team environment.


It’s a large company so it can be difficult to navigate at times, learning how to utilize resources (& even what is available to you) can take a long time.

Really great people to work with. Fair benefits and interesting work.


Low pay, and a lack of support in some areas. Whatever the board wants happens, so if your department is viewed badly by the board then there is little you can do to save it.

Kimball International - 3.1

Humanscale is very unique. We are an extremely fast growing company that continues to grow aggressively year after year; when most of our competitors are not. As an employee, you are given a lot of autonomy and tools to do your job, and if you work hard and produce, you will become very successful and career advancement opportunities will be there for you.


In order to be successful at Humanscale, you need to be adoptable, flexible, a team player and open to change. As we continue to grow and evolve rapidly, direction may alter at times.
