    I have been working at Hologic full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    How logic has provided me a great work environment, incredibly smart and passionate people to work with, The resources I need to succeed, and the opportunity to blaze my own trail.

    I find the executive leadership team to be incredibly passionate, engaging, and inspiring.

    Cons

    While there has been a complete change in all leadership positions I find that some very tenured employees are naysayers which can slow productivity.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to maintain the unique culture and environment!

    I have been working at Hologic full-time

    Pros

    Excellent products, great people, strong CEO, senior management good with a couple of exceptions

    Cons

    If HR Leader doesn't like you, you're gone, a favoritism culture. We keep doing surveys on engagement but I don't see any improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all employees like they are important and that they matter. HR should lead the way.

    I have been working at Hologic full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    great products in most divisions, growing and focused on development of cool new products that are useful for our customers, in product development there's a generally good, focused and well-integrated office culture

    Cons

    uncertainty about future / additional layoffs or staff changes contributes to a stressful cloud of uncertainty over groups that have experienced reductions in headcount, 4ft cubes are a terrible idea and reduce everyone's productivity due to distraction.

    Advice to Management

    communicate confidence about staffing levels cross-functionally, invest in professional development, especially soft skills for manager

    I have been working at Hologic full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Hologic is in a good industry despite current regulatory changes and challenges. Hologic’s products are superior to Roche and the competition.

    Cons

    Employees are not invested in at Hologic. There are no Develoment courses to help you grow in your position or understand what you need to do for the next level. Promotions are not based on performance but favoritism by your manager.

    Advice to Management

    Put a program together for employees to continue to grow and develop. Otherwise we will leave and go to the competition.

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

    Pros

    Hologic has changed for the better in many ways in the 4 years since I left the organization. It has emerged from much of the turmoil of the past to be one of the strongest biotechnology companies with significant presence in San Diego.
    Some of the key strengths include:
    Strong leadership team
    Clear commitment to growth and performance
    Exceptional products based on innovative science
    Fantastic people, very smart and committed to making a difference

    Cons

    Large complex organization which can sometimes make it challenging to balance priorities.

    I have been working at Hologic full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good products with strong market share in most categories we compete in. Have been successful in growing our way out of a terrible debt issue created by previous management.

    Cons

    Too much emphasis on shareholder value.

    Raises have been non-existent for 5+ years. High performers don't even get raises that match traditional cost of living. They make it up with one time, but strong, bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    I would prefer to not focus on share prices and instead on true productivity and let the share prices reflect the creation of value. Instead too many decisions are made to bolster the appearance of short term profits at the expense of long term productivity. A more long term approach to shareholder value would return the focus to stable business infrastructure and efficient productivity. Growth without proper infrastructure will lead to an inability to support said growth.

    The return to profitability has been remarkable. Reward the strong performances with raises that reflect individuals contribution to the turnaround.

    I have been working at Hologic full-time

    Pros

    Flexible hours
    Lots of overtime
    Company car lease and company phone.

    Cons

    Little to no job growth opportunities
    Get hung out to dry when anyone else in the company makes a mistake
    Difficult to unplug when at home
    Lots of overtime

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so afraid of autonomy. Lots of added work because management is afraid of service’s proximity to customer. Not enough support.
