    I have been working at Hollister Incorporated full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Dedicated to the company mission, led by the most ethical and servant leaders I have ever worked with. As the company has grown from it's humble roots, the business climate has become exceedingly complex, management has responded by recruiting very talented associates and by developing a very well thought out strategic plan. The company continues to achieve plan year over year and is debt free with a bright future.

    Cons

    The business environment is getting tough. Growth and profitability targets are getting more difficult to achieve. Management is still relatively conservative.

    Advice to Management

    You are on the right path. Increase your focus on making the changes that are required to be an employer of choice for the current and next generation. You know what you need to do. Accelerate.

    I worked at Hollister Incorporated full-time

    Pros

    Great people, 'Hollister Shares' pay off well if you stick around. Rewarding company to work for with international reach/opportunities and products that save or improve lives. They also tend to have lovely offices/buildings.

    Cons

    Not too much to complain about. All that comes to mind is how the dress code could be a bit more flexible (Referring to the men's tie and suitcoat requirement)

    Advice to Management

    Try to move forward, attract more millennials to employ, and do not require all men to wear ties to work every day.

    I have been working at Hollister Incorporated full-time

    Pros

    People at Hollister care, pure and simple. They take the time to ensure that things are done right. They are very mindful of the world around them. Senior leadership constantly try to engage with Associates.

    Cons

    Culture can take some getting used to. Hollister is privately owned and is not answerable to shareholders. Some people struggle with this at times and need to understand this is a benefit, not a downside.

    Advice to Management

    Carry on! Your leadership will not please everyone all the time, but the results and the impact on the people who use our products and services speak for themselves. Great job.

    Pros

    Hollister is loaded with employees that have entire careers at Hollister Incorporated, are the best at what they do. The pay matches the top quality talent they hire.

    Cons

    Hollister pays so well that when you begin looking for another job, most companies are paying less than what you can earn at Hollister Incorporated.

    I have been working at Hollister Incorporated (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Small feel to a global company
    -Finally relaxed the dress code to business casual
    -An ongoing effort to provide recognition
    -The building is well maintained and the conference rooms, while few, are well equipped with high end technology and monitors
    -Making headway in the digital space (website upgrades, joined social media, making efforts to share more about the company externally)
    -Good work/life balance
    -Great benefits, pension, pay and bonus opportunity
    -CEO is making strides to progress the company forward in the culture
    -On-site cafeteria with subsidized pricing
    -Good location to downtown Libertyville and near the highway

    Cons

    -There are pockets of tenured associates who are very stubborn to change
    -Slow to update digital tools necessary to be competitive in the marketplace
    -Cannot rollover leftover vacation days
    -Slow to adopt a more casual dress code that most businesses seem to have
    -401k match is not great. Focus is on the pension plan

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the change. Keep listening to Associates and act on that feedback.
