    Pros

    Excellent training. Great working conditions and meaningful work.

    Cons

    Salary could be higher to keep the middle management on board. It costs to continue training new manager due to high turn over rates.

    Pros

    They try to make the job fun with a fun and games committee, have a strong goal for the company as well. This is a very team driven environment yet you will work on your own as well. Promotions within the company do happen, but one may question how the party was promoted.

    Cons

    Little on the boring side. Very routine job with little vairence from day to day activities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote the most productive people in your teams. Don't leave them at their current job just because they are very productive and you would hate to loose them in that place.

    I have been working at Hill-Rom full-time

    Pros

    We recently won several extremely large, nationwide and statewide, contracts that will continue to take our organization to the next level. Great compensation/benefits. Cross divisional opportunities. Grassroots leadership. Co-workers are very professional and know how to work together as a team. Extremely strong core values and policies in place.

    Cons

    We are a little behind on the technology diversification process. In other words, our competitors have grown more toward "med tech" companies. HRC has more grass roots approach that is now starting to blossom through the right acquisitions. C

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to respond to the market/field's demand and we will continue to win the big relationships. Great job with HCA & Novation!!

    I worked at Hill-Rom as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    They make (manufacture) something - hospital beds and it is a quality product. Some of the senior leadership has good vision looking down the road at coming trends in the industry. Good people and some really great folks in spots. They have excellent stickiness in the hospital room with their network that receives data from the bed and are trying to exploit that for more traction and market share.

    Cons

    Entrenched processes - they're adopting/adapting to Agile (a bit late), but this mgt process is not really affecting (yet) how things get done. The worksphere is extremely silo'd - they are craftsmen and don't really know what mass production is let alone Lean or Agile. The craftsmen have plenty of satisfaction because they work from the bolts on the wheels to the engine under the hood and the paint job as well (which is outdated) - but these same craftsmen are middle-level technocrats who decide what's in and what's out and senior management has lost control of them. They don't have a meatballs chance on a plate of spaghetti of making it in the markets ahead. For over 3 months I honestly could not answer the question "Who is your manager". Seriously.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get Agile in place and start cleaning house and bringing in new full-time talent vs contractors. It appears HR is a bit of a mill. They bring in a lot of talent but shed a lot as well, pretty much on a whim. There are virtually no development standards in house and while a Tesla may well be in the making, it is more likely an Edsel that will materialize. Break up the low and middle level manager cartel who decide Hill-Roms future after a few too many beers every afternoon vs in the conference room with verifiable facts at a strategy session with listed goals.
