    I have been working at Hill-Rom Holdings full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    On a local level management allows flexibility in work schedule to alow for dealing with life events. There is generally a good cohesive team effort. Work conditions are generally not too arduous and the work environment is clean.

    Cons

    Over the past few years it seems that the Hill-Rom culture has changed. Understandably every company has performance measures to meet. Over the years is seems that more emphasis has been on hitting the numbers and less focus on actually doing the job and keeping the customer happy. Limited variety of specific jobs unless you are able to relocate to another region.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move the Ivory tower back to Batesville. What is the cost benefit of having the C suites in Chicago (cost per sq feet) over being in Batesville where the hub of operations has been since the company's founding??? Focus more on the customer and doing the job effectively and focus less on increasing the measures to the point to where they are nearly unattainable.

    Calibre of management has improved over past 5 years.

    Move everything to Chicago. Batesville HQ hurts talent acquisition.

    I have been working at Hill-Rom Holdings

    Pros

    Industry leading, internationally growing company, which provides opportunities for those who seek them. Great company to gain experience in the medical device industry. Decent compensation plan including significant YE bonus. Stable employer for high performing folks - most employeers are long term (15+yrs)

    Cons

    Hill-Rom continues to be perceived negatively by many long-term employees who are slow to accept that we are a public, not a private company. Senior management presents an ever-changing environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Visit the facilities, and understand what is really happening before making drastic changes.
