    I worked at Hill-Rom (More than a year)

    Pros

    This was a nice place to work. They have a lot of quality people. I loved working directly with certain reps.

    Cons

    They tend to "re-organize" about every 6 months and that means lay-offs galore. It's sad to see people yiubwork with get that bad news. It's also stressful wondering when it will be your turn.

    I worked at Hill-Rom full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a good company and they have quality products. Better to have a medical/healthcare background then go in blind.

    Cons

    It's very siloed - quite literally. Everyone moves to the cubes/offices rarely to be seen again. They lay off people every year just under to avoid reporting it but enough to meet earnings goals.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire someone without the exact background you need and not train them.
