Pros

Cool challenging projects. Success is rewarding knowing you are creating good things for patients and caregivers. Good dsign and analytical tools.

Cons

Too many people to please, proceedures, and project constraints are cosistantly unreasonable, unless you are on a project that is favored by management. Favortism, and nepitism creates an almost maddening toxic enviroment that will eventually burn you out. They favor new engineers for new hires. Management will progressively make it harder and harder on you. Computers are outdated. Award systems for good work are broken or nonexistant.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fair treatment is needed. Need to listen more to employees. A few managers need to be let go for their demoralizing treatment of their employees.

    Full speed in many different directions! Some managers are understanding, but that doesn't eliminate chaos and overload

    Pros

    Hill-Rom's corporate offices are located in a small town with surprising resources. Everything is easily accessible. Schools are very good. You will get to know your work peers because you will interact with them in other places as well. The company is supportive of the town and vice versa. It is a great place to raise kids. You will meet some fantastic people, especially at the lower levels of the company where you find "locals" who have been here a long time.

    Cons

    Morale is very low. Layoffs created situations where those left have too much work. The load and the inability to successfully accomplish all of it is demoralizing. Remaining staff feels they are on the brink of being let go as well. Any planning from the top is not being interpreted well by middle management. It feels like we take off in one direction and before we finish, we start over in another direction. There is a significant "old boys club" mentality and an unwillingness to promote from within. This not only eliminates potential for career growth through promotion, but means that choice growth opportunities at one's current level tend to always go to the same few people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate more thoroughly throughout the company. The quarterly meetings do not provide a lot of information that people want to know. There is too much "spin" on the important agenda items. For example, tell everyone exactly what the plans are for moving some of the headquarters functions to Chicago so that people will know and can plan ahead. Otherwise, you look like you are lying (lying by omission even when directly confronted), and people will later say "we knew it all along".
