Pros

Operational management is very competent. They know how to attack and win markets. Acquisitions actually make sense, although a bit slow to integrate.

Cons

Too many employees who served their time given promotions and management responsibilties for no other reason than technical achievement in the past. No clear direction for professional development, especially if you are stuck with a bad boss who has "done the time". Somewhat of a butt-kissing culture.

    I have been working at Hologic full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    An entirely new leadership team has been brought in over the past few years, and have saved a company on the brink of a breakup. A turn-around driven by better leadership and execution without many new products is truly impressive. Reduction of debt, a new focus on international growth, and an enhanced R&D pipeline position the company really well for the future. The products are also life saving, and I'm proud to work for a company that makes a difference. Compensation is very competitive, and high performers are rewarded. If you are just an average performer or want a 9-5 checked out job, chances are you won't be successful here.

    Cons

    For a company this size, some of the basic processes and systems are fairly archaic. There's been some progress on this in recent years, but there is still a lot of room for improvement. The company has lost some talented people to competitive companies, and there is some risk associated with their recent cynosure acquisition. Time will tell if it's a fit in the portfolio and if it will deliver the expected growth.

    Advice to Management

    The company really needed to invest more in their Diagnostic R&D pipeline, and their overall international business. Pay down debt a little slower and invest in there areas. That will deliver organic growth for the benefit of the patients that need our products and the investors who expect us to deliver on our performance commitments

    I have been working at Hologic full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Amazing purpose and products and services are second to none
    - People are good - smart, dedicated, sense of humour (mostly!)
    - International division is just gaining momentum, so there is a chance to influence and shape the business - processes, direction etc.

    Cons

    - "International division is just gaining momentum, so a chance to influence and shape the org"... which means some processes and systems still need work; it can take longer than it should to get the basics done. On the flip side, people are helpful and mask some of that. Some people like this 'start up' feel, but it isn't for everybody.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on pushing forward. All the efforts are starting to make a difference.
