    Pros

    Good people. Opportunities to go to different service center (float). Good training program.

    Cons

    Management is all about the numbers (workorders) have to be creative without faking it. Vechiles heavily monitored for speed and safety (Elog).

    Advice to Management

    To much enphasis on the numbers. Some service centers understaffed for to long. Upper management seems out of touch with the day to day operations in the field.

    Decent benefits. EAP resources nice.

    Cons

    Destruction via Restructure
    Attempts to promote diversity and inclusion for a company this size are laughable and ridiculous

    Advice to Management

    Engage fields service and sales people- not their managers. And listen openly for honesty not what sounds good.

    I worked at Hill-Rom full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Hill-Rom has a laudable mission to "enhance outcomes for patients and their caregivers."

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the company went downhill after going public. Just about every quarterly financial report brings about either hiring freezes, layoffs, and another round of cost cutting. Health insurance is absolutely terrible and very expensive. Employees are expendable, and contractors are even more so. I have seen so many contractors be told they'll be converted to full-time after 30- days, but 30-days turns into 60, 90, 120-days or never. Management is overpaid and treats employees poorly. A former VP bragged about he added a wine cellar to his house and had an expensive oil painting in his office, but couldn't be honest with people to save his life. Culture has become extremely toxic - employees have to fight with each other over scarce resources.

    Advice to Management

    Re-invest in your business. Stop overcompensating management who don't meet basic standards of integrity.

    Streamline processes and templates and listen to people outside of Batesville

    I worked at Hill-Rom full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Some of the best teams I have ever been involved with.

    - Good pay.

    - Nice bonus structure.

    Cons

    - Benefits, just OK, heavy cost to the employee, also, changed to an HSA ONLY, no PPO option any longer .

    - Not all teams are held to the same standards.

    - Sales are never held accountable

    - No longer value EVERY Customer, just the Enterprise Customers ( the HCA's of the world).

    - People either hired into, or promoted to management is often based on the Good Ol' Boy network, making them extremely incompetent.

    - An extremely "Click'ish" culture.

    - Very poor Installatiin Contracters are often used

    - In many cases, the company is extremely unethical.

    Advice to Management

    Change. Follow the standards that have been put in place and proven, for all projects because when everything is a "One Off", nothing is a "One Off", it is simply the new standard.

    - Hold everyone accountable, including yourself and your peers.

    Hold all teams to the same standards as other teams are held to.

    - Lastly, start giving a damm once again, for more than revenue and stock value alone as there are many things that are equally important, however they can not be measured in monetary forms
