    Pros

    A company whose goal is to care for patients and their caregivers.

    Cons

    Senior management is a turnstile, with no apparent strategy for organic growth and no evidence that they are capable of generating it. What a pity the new CEO felt he knew enough to dismantle all the momentum the former management team had established. Now earnings and financial engineering seem the only things that matter.

    Advice to Management

    Leave and let someone who knows what they are doing take the reigns.

    Pros

    On a local level management allows flexibility in work schedule to alow for dealing with life events. There is generally a good cohesive team effort. Work conditions are generally not too arduous and the work environment is clean.

    Cons

    Over the past few years it seems that the Hill-Rom culture has changed. Understandably every company has performance measures to meet. Over the years is seems that more emphasis has been on hitting the numbers and less focus on actually doing the job and keeping the customer happy. Limited variety of specific jobs unless you are able to relocate to another region.

    Advice to Management

    Move the Ivory tower back to Batesville. What is the cost benefit of having the C suites in Chicago (cost per sq feet) over being in Batesville where the hub of operations has been since the company's founding??? Focus more on the customer and doing the job effectively and focus less on increasing the measures to the point to where they are nearly unattainable.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, good people, ethical and focused on helping patients
    Effective products are attractive to facilities
    Indiana lodging looks beautiful in the winter

    Cons

    Strategy changes yearly
    Executive leadership doesn't stick around long
    Declining hospital spending makes high price product less attractive
    Products do not directly generate revenue for facilities

    Advice to Management

    No point. Ultimate goal is clear.

    Pros

    Batesville is a great small community with wonderful schools, parks, athletic facilities, and easy access to the Cincinnati and Indianapolis.

    Cons

    Doesn't care about the employee just profits. Doesn't consider giving people chances in other work areas just lays them off. Always have your resume updated if you work for Hill-Rom.

    Advice to Management

    Management has created a culture of people looking over there shoulder. They worrying about their employment instead of leading and innovating.

    Pros

    Calibre of management has improved over past 5 years.

    Cons

    Endless cycle of cost cutting leaves everyone generally uncertain about job security

    Advice to Management

    Move everything to Chicago. Batesville HQ hurts talent acquisition.
