I have been working at Hospira full-time for less than a year

Pros

I enjoyed working at Hospira. It was a very professional company. The company gives plenty of training to make sure you feel capable of all jobs.

Cons

Hospira has lots of work to do so those in manufacturing may have to work a lot of overtime. I didn't mind because they pay great for overtime.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I like how they hire people through Kelly Services now, but some of the people hired have bad attitudes.

    I have been working at Hospira as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice office location thats all about it.

    Cons

    Nothing to learn, really there is no meaning of calling it as a "Software Company", good for people who are at the retirement age as it is a good place to rest and chat with colleagues, the internship program here is the worst than even a garage company, no opportunity of being rolled over to full time, joining here will be like risking your career, at the end of your contract you won't learn anything nor you will be in a position to crack the interviews of other companies. Its better to stay back at home, rather than working in such a company. No respect for employees. Good for people who are willing to end their career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rather than taking up meetings whole day, assign some better work for your employees from which they can learn something out of it.

    Pros

    There are small pockets of the business driving to improve aforementioned gaps and many good, talented people. If one is lucky enough to fall into one of these pockets, one can find opportunities to succeed and excel.

    Benefits are above average. Salaries are industry average.

    Cons

    These small pockets are the minority and politics will eventually overshadow the pros. If you are an extremely skilled politician, willing to adopt the ruling viewpoints, despite contrary principles and experience, you will excel. Otherwise, it will be a disappointing, unfruitful, Likely career damaging path.
