    I worked at Hologic

    Pros

    *Great products; most are best in class
    *Your work contributes to better health for women worldwide
    *Knowledgeable colleagues
    *Investment in infrastucture
    *Profit sharing and good benefits
    *Town hall meetings used to communicate to employees on a regular basis

    Cons

    *Have personally seen few opportunities for promotion
    *Male-dominated upper management
    *Performance evaluations are flawed; they use "forced ranking" to stay within budget. If you don't know forced ranking: Typically, the top 20% of employees are rated "A", middle 70% are "B" and bottom 10% are "C", regardless of the quality of individual performance. Using forced ranking: If one were to rank all living Nobel laureates, 10% of them would be "C" - they'd be given no raise or promotion and might even be encouraged to look for another job. This is a highly demotivating system and the reason I'm moving on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I had high hopes for the women's leadership initiative. A year or two has gone by since it was first introduced and It is a bust. As time passes and women get the hint, they will leave Hologic. You can talk about change, but if you don't take any action employees lose faith and will leave. This can be very costly to the organization. Also, it looks bad that a women's health company is run by an old boy's network.
