    Pros

    great people, coworkers , decent benefits , sick time , vacation , holidays , STD and LTD etc...
    good balance to work / home life . management is accomidating and reasonable aside from constant restructuring. new management and CEO looks like hes making a change so far and is doing good , hopefully he returns this place to what it once was .

    Cons

    instability , little to no advancement , poor raises barely covering cost of living which is combined in the overall performance review , very cliquey have to be in with management to move up or get any advancements, management is not even present in most sites as they are local to other sites and have little to no visibility so not sure how they can proper evaluate employees they aren't supervising. constant reorganization in management , little to no job security profit sharing has ceased and benefits are slowly declining , workloads have quadrupled due to restructuring and layoffs and bonuses have been non existant in the last few years . health insurance has been constantly on the rise and the cost has been passed onto the employee . management has their own cliques and those who are part of it are the ones who get ahead and get promotions while the rest suffer .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    support and accept feedback from those who work hard for you and go to bat for them when review time comes and when needed on managerial matters related to policy etc.. and recognize them regardless whether their in your circle or not . not discriminate and play favoritism .

    Pros

    there are no more pros to working here anymore,unless you are one of carl icahns people,otherwise dead end job

    Cons

    every year they take more and more from employees,no more profit sharing,benefits keep going up,and this year no raises,again,unless your a good ole boy.This is the lowest of the low this company has done to its employess.I highly recommend not coming to work here unless you like being lied to,under paid and over worked,empty promises...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We know what your up to,build the brand up,get stocks up and then sell,thats what Icahns people do,known fact.Funny how he brought in all his people from Johnson and Johnson.It amaze's me how greedy you guys really are.Instead of giving the people who do the actual work a bone to help us make a living,you keep it all to yourself and come up with b.s excuses that theres no money,meanwhile,how much are your bonus's?Exactly!Complete disgust amongst all of us trying to earn I living.I could go on,but you get the point.

    Pros

    The company is large and has lots of resources at your fingertips in terms of learning practical laboratory skills and diving into the biotech industry.

    Cons

    Culture could change. Everyone seems bitter, stressed, and angry. I think the company needs to learn to value its people over its systems.

    Pros

    Legacy Gen-Probe were smart and work schedules were flexible. There were high expectations but high rewards too. Hologic seemed to have a strong product portfolio and strong Asian sales market.

    Cons

    After Hologic takeover there were layoffs and company culture took a huge hit. Now it may be better since the integration has occurred a few years ago. Not a lot of growth encouragement either, I think upper management was concerned with other things to worry about provide training or opportunities internally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to communicate integration strategies and overall company strategic direction.

    Pros

    There are many talented, committed people working for the company. The strength of the company truly is the quality of the employees.

    Cons

    Career development, mentorship, work/life balance, compensation, upper management, and employee appreciation were all sub-par. In fairness, there had been MUCH instability in the company the past few years. Many rounds of layoffs, projects cuts, and constant change among the VP, GM, and CEO ranks made working there very difficult. However, there weren't enough reasons to encourage employees to stick it out with the company. Additionally, there were very few reassuring signs that better times were on the horizon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create stability within the organization and make the employees feel as if they are committing to a company that's committing to them.

    just enough corporate culture to make things slow

    Pros

    Great people within departments, new CEO is taking the company in the right direction, lots of opportunity since the acquisition shuffled senior management around.

    Cons

    Horrible benefits for 2014/2015, got rid of the bonus structure Gen-Probe had in place, communication between departments can be stressful at times, no company activities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back decent benefits, do something to increase morale
