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 Management

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.

    I have been working at Hollister Incorporated full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - amazing manager and associate level people, people that actual care about others - value face to face interactions, regardless of location - support employees traveling globally to visit customers and build relationships - take care of employees when job is not a good fit - suprising benefits (umbrellas when it rains, clean snow off cars, holiday gifts for employees children) - private, no worries about quarterly earnings

    Cons

    - very strong, unique culture that is not for everyone - formal business dress (ties and suits Mon-Thur) - not open to new ideas - slow to move and change - not able to make decisions, empowered to try but often over ruled - private, less information made available

    I worked at Hollister Incorporated (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Hollister rewards good outcomes. They require that you work smart and hard. Benefits are good and they live the immutable principle of Dignity, Respect, Integrity, and Service.

    Cons

    Sales goals are often unrealistic and unacheivable. There is a serious focus on $$$.

    Advice to Management

    Think outside the box and realistically when making business decisions and be willing to support staff despite outcomes.
