    I worked at Hospira

    Pros

    Great people to work with. One of the only companies that could really say they are part of the solution to the healthcare crisis

    Cons

    Middle upper leadership - VP Levels - are stuck in the way things used to be and can't seem to find a way to change out dated processes and thought patterns. They seem to be holding on just as long as they can so they can retire with a golden parachute. As long as the good ol' boys are in control nothing will change, there will be no room for growth and creativity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your people stay because they believe in Hospira and what this organization means to patient care. Recognize that and stop following the salary and benefits trends down so that we need to look elsewhere. offer flexible paths to career advancement, TRUST your people becasue your customers trust them.

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

    Pros

    Flexible working hours.
    Good 401k.
    Relatively good paycheck.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth.
    Not good for engineers, a lot of processes that kill or slow down creativity.
    Not enough good leaders and engineers.
    No bonuses or perks unless you are high in organization chart.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re structural the way you look at engineering, allow room for growth and give your engineers a reason to go an extra mile for you.
