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

    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.

    Advice to Management

    None

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

    Pros

    Co-workers are friendly and very helpful when they're not saddled with ridiculously heavy work loads. Overtime is nice too.

    Cons

    The company is constantly bragging about how much they're growing; they're generating more business, servicing more areas, and buying up smaller companies. Instead of hiring more help to account for the growth, they're laying people off and constantly putting the extra work load and demands on their already overworked staff.

    Advice to Management

    I've been told by numerous former employees and long tenured employees that the company used to be very fun to work for. They used to put great emphasis on fostering a positive and fun work environment, but these days, they're like any other corporation; all they care about is their profits. There are much worse jobs out there, but there are much better too.

    I have been working at Hill-Rom full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work hours/locations - as long as you're getting things done, management typically does not mind where or when. Good social environment. Company is growing and investing in new technology.

    Cons

    Heavy-handed processes can be slow or cumbersome. Company still has a lot of baggage as a "device" company instead of an "IT" company.

    I have been working at Hill-Rom full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good health insurance cheaper than most places

    Cons

    I work at the Plano TX branch, by any means avoid working for that particular location, 16 people have left in less than a year.. Micromanaging and a lot of unprofessionalism. If you call in sick and bring a doctors note you get an occurrence point. Even with a note. If someone hits your company truck they always say it’s your fault and that it can be avoided. The job title its wrong because once you start all you do is deliver beds! Not repairs its a delivery job. Alot of promises to get you in and once you start everything promised changes. Miscommunication is a big issue here and organizational skills. Training should be in Batesville Indiana but apparently they haven’t sent any employees for the past 2-3 years.

    Advice to Management

    Look into management at this location asap. Before all the employees start leaving, 16+ people in less than a year? Who is the problem here??

    Pros

    Nice place to work, full of talented people. Has good benefits, and an HR organization that wants to help. Top leadership is progressive. International operations, and growth through acquisitions.

    Cons

    Relentless drive for cost-cutting, constant reorganizations, divestitures, plant closures, etc. resulting in a shell-shocked and complacent workforce. High turnover, and low morale. Low company loyalty. Three COOs in 30 months.
    Every new executive brings own "boys' club" in, driving more turnover and cynicism.

    Advice to Management

    Stabilize the organization.
    Stop allowing every new VP to bring his own boys' club on board.
    Create continuity of culture and strategy.

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

    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.
