    I have been working at Hologic full-time (More than a year)


    How logic has provided me a great work environment, incredibly smart and passionate people to work with, The resources I need to succeed, and the opportunity to blaze my own trail.

    I find the executive leadership team to be incredibly passionate, engaging, and inspiring.


    While there has been a complete change in all leadership positions I find that some very tenured employees are naysayers which can slow productivity.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to maintain the unique culture and environment!

    Negative Experience


    Interview? WHAT interview? I didn't even get a CHANCE.
    I knew someone who worked at Hologic, and they put in a good word for me with their boss. After being given the boss's contact into, I heard from this acquaintance that (supposedly) their boss was "definitely going to call me", that I "had a good background, I would definitely get hired, let alone an interview."
    ...Believe me, I'm not naive enough to believe that *blindly*, but this person absolutely *insisted* that their boss was going to call. Over a span of about 2 months, I sent a few e-mails to the boss with my resume and called & left a message once. I heard NOTHING back, despite my acquaintance's insistence that "he was definitely going to call". It's not the first time a company didn't do ANYTHING to contact me back, and I was getting tired of this little 'game', so I nearly gave up. My acquaintance gave me another person in HR to contact, who also knew me. She was very nice, gave me ANOTHER person to contact (some recruiter within the company), and again made false promises of phone calls and "If you don't hear from them, let me know!" I 'coincidentally' haven't seen this woman since, and (shocker) haven't heard from this contact person once.

    ...Look, I've had quite a few job interviews over the last 15 years or so, and about a hundred more companies that never once contacted me. To not be contacted ONCE (despite MANY attempts to reach SOMEone in the company) is not something that's new to me. However, you might want to mention to people within the company to not 'promise' prospective employees/interviewees anything if you have NO intention of even TRYING to contact them at least once. I know companies often get flooded with resumes, phone calls, and e-mails about jobs from hundreds of people, but those people ALL took time out of their day to contact them. If you ARE going to 'promise' something to someone and have NO intention of even giving them an interview (whether they're not qualified enough, or what have you), then at least take (literally) 60 seconds to send even a generic 'thanks, but no thanks' message. Sometimes a job interview can mean the WORLD to someone, and it's nice to at LEAST be shown a little respect as a fellow human being to let them try. ...Especially after some of the low-class behaviors I've heard Hologic employees doing ON THE JOB sometimes... (rude to other building employees, making a mess of public areas) it's insulting that THEY can get a full-time job there, and I can't even get a CHANCE to prove myself. Very disappointing.
