    I worked at Hill-Rom full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They hire right out of school with little experience

    Cons

    Very negative environment
    Low to no advancement opportunity
    High turnover in management
    Dishonest practices
    Very negative unappreciative management
    You have to be careful not to allow yourself to be "thrown under the buss"
    Management expects a rigid schedule and expects daily overtime
    Management refuses to pay overtime - (I had to contact department of Labor and did not get paid until 10 months later)

    Advice to Management

    Get the company's act together, I would recommend that anyone employed here leave immediately for a job at any other company.

    Pros

    There are no pros. This place is a disaster.

    Cons

    Bar none, this was the worst job I’ve ever had. Thank god the last CEO finally left – he couldn’t hide how bitter and angry he was. But I imagine trying to keep with the company’s slash and burn cost-cutting will drive anyone mad. Sadly, as long as H-R employs an army of lawyers in Chicago and overcompensate bad leaders, then it doesn’t matter if employees don’t have the tools to do their jobs. My manager hated giving people bad news so he’d tell me to do it for him – and then tell everyone I was behind the reason for the bad news. It was also my fault when he got caught willfully violating policies or spent too much money even though I warned him. He refused to spend money on updated equipment to replace old/broken stuff but would go out and spend lavishly on leadership team dinners. I have never seen anybody lie so much in my entire life. This manager is gone but I blame leadership for keeping him on after a major product failure. As long as you make your numbers at this company, nothing else matters here. I’ve seen this company keep on terrible leaders for decades yet the company won’t fire them. I’ve seen this company play games to make leaders quit or offer full retirement to make them leave quietly. Human resources is pretty weak here.

    Advice to Management

    At least try to pretend that you care about employees.

    Pros

    Good products. Patient Surfaces are an unsung heroes in the Med Surg, Critical Care and Long term care facilities. The pressure ulcer prevention surfaces and the percussion /vibration are awesome from the caregiver viewpoint, but these products don't get the recognition due

    Cons

    Middle Management is finally catching on to the CEO's call to Quality and staying on the right side of regulations.
