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".

    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.
