I worked at Hollister Incorporated full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

You have a job with many good associates. Repeat: Lots of good people.

Cons

Management is more concerned with gaining market share in Ostomy (a dying market) then pursuing Wound care an increasing market. Integrity is a core belief at Hollister but business need trumps that EVERY time. Hollister is good at using opinion, not evidence to support its claims. CMA is the way middle management continues to stay employed.
Old school 60's -70's way of running a company. Boys club. Ideas are not heard . Change is as slow as a slug. Formal business dress, to work in the lab . Tie plus running machine = danger . If you need a job and have very few options try it but be warned.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the corporals not the generals. If something does not work ask our thoughts not tell us to fix it . or "If you really wanted to , you could do it." Good day.

    Pros

    There is a laid-back atmosphere at Hollister and there is not a hard job in the building!!

    Cons

    Management is too passive, you can get away with murder and still keep getting your paycheck. No one seems to be held accountable for any mistakes. Most managers and senior level leaders are grossly ignorant to their jobs and some flat out break rules all day!! No integrity to be found!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for better supervisors and senior level managers!!
