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

    Pros

    Safe work environment, co-workers are like family,

    Cons

    Don’t show appreciation to employees who work hard for them. They promote new hires instead of dedicated employees that are always there for them. It’s more about who you know instead of how hard you work for them.

    Advice to Management

    Pay better attention to your long term employees and show them appreciation. Promote from within. Listen to what your hourly employees are saying not just assume your ways are always the right way.

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

    Pros

    Hill-Rom has a lot to offer. They recently acquired three companies within a four-year time span. This has led to growth in multiple business segments. The sky is the limit in terms of the potential growth. The senior leadership is focused on a growth which will catapult them into other segments of the medical industry.

    Cons

    The negative aspect of the meteoric growth is redundancy of resources. That coupled with a down turn in their rental activities have forced them to implement a corporate restructuring and made the organization leaner. I truly believe that the company is headed in the right direction but as the uncertainty and the government continues it will be interesting to see where the business goes.

    Advice to Management

    New your focus on expanding the portfolio and getting rid of low profitability product lines.

    Pros

    Fast paced environment where your performance is compensated well. The outlook is good given they just bought three companies in four years.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, there has been recent corporate restructuring due to a changing market.

    Advice to Management

    Don't believe all the metrics placed in front of you. Patient safety should be paramount not good looking metrics and a soaring stock price.

    Pros

    Working within the hospital making a difference. Having an awesome manger who makes the worst times great. Being active and on your feet all day its a workout.

    Cons

    High turn over, being the ugly stepchild to the company sense we make pennies to the service centers, the only advancemt within A2 is an asset manager.

    Advice to Management

    Start supporting A2 like you do the service centers and maybe you would see some major improvements with turnover and growth. Actually create a marketing program for A2 this only helps hill-rom have embeded techs within hospitals to get sales reps leads with hospital needs before they go to our competitor.

    Pros

    Great culture, values and respects employees, our work makes a difference

    Cons

    The frequency of layoffs is demoralizing, internal communication within our department needs to be improved in general

    Advice to Management

    Director of R&D should spend more time to understand the actual contributions, abilities aand impact of the many talented staff. Some really talented people are vastly underutilized.
