    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 worked at Hologic full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great products and solid management team. Competitive earning potential and positioning versus competing companies and products. Also really enjoyed my direct management

    Cons

    Challenging to find advancement opportunities without relocating. Territories can be larger than some may find typical but that is just part of the job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep letting the field Personel do what they do best without too much red tape.

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

    Pros

    I wake up everyday knowing that I have the best products in the world that can potentially save someone's life...

    I could stop there but I wouldn't be doing Hologic justice, because even beyond their amazing dedication to providing and innovating world class health products, Hologic's Company Culture is second to none.

    Sure people say that a company culture is good and I don't know how to convey it here, but it's truly the greatest company I've ever worked for... the only thing better than the products' Hologic manufacturers is their reputation. I wake eager and hungry to impact the lives of my customers/ facilities I serve.

    Additional Pros:
    Pay is outstanding!
    Benefits are superb!
    Company really encourages thinking outside of the box and they don't discourage creativity/ originality: if you can find a more efficient/ better way of getting your job done, they encourage it!
    Continuous Education. Never stop learning!

    Cons

    I don't have a con, seriously. I've never worked harder and enjoyed the work I'm doing anywhere else, like I do now working at Hologic.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! Love the company and I look forward to the even brighter days ahead, and furthermore, to helping improve/ impact the world.

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

    Pros

    From the top down it's a group of passionate people who are committed to Innovation of life changing technologies. There is a whole portfolio of best in class products. The Genius 3D mammography has proprietary claims of increased cancer detection. These products are saving lives and improving clinical outcomes, patient experience and treatment management.

    Cons

    Any medical device company will be challenged with getting FDA approval to happen quickly. It would be a huge benefit to get technology out faster to customers and the patients.

    Pros

    Great Teams, great Leaders, great Products. Hologic delivers on its commitment of transforming patient care through innovative solutions and supports the commercial org in many great ways.

    Cons

    Infrastructure is slowly catching up to other industry benchmarks. Tools (IT, marketing etc.) are often implemented slowly and with varied successes.

    Advice to Management

    Talent development could be more of a focus and less of a PR talking point

    Pros

    Great products, passionate executive leadership team.

    Cons

    Too many senior managers and directors, too few "worker-bees". Lots of temps hired to fill in the gaps resulting in employee churn and lack of continuity in
    knowledge and expertise.

    Advice to Management

    HR/Senior Leadership team needs to stop all the useless employee surveys and take the initiative to SPEAK to the employees below the manager level to get realistic feedback about the culture and working conditions in specific departments.

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

    Pros

    The Acquisition has been as smooth as possible. Hologic has gone above and beyond to make Cynosure employees feel welcomed. All people that I have encountered have been smart, hard working and passionate. The executive team is impressive and very thoughtful in their approach.

    Cons

    There is still a lot of transition with the Acquisition, with hard work ahead of us with more integrations, but all of this is to be expected.

    Advice to Management

    Cynosure has a unique culture, which I hope it continues. Keep up the great work!

    I have been working at Hologic full-time

    Pros

    Love what the company stands for and how our technology contribute to health care and help save lives! Company has good values and is geared towards growth. Good vacation and sick time policies, although Gen-Probe's policies were better. Benefits are decent but health insurance is frustrating as the cost increases every year. Mostly very good and talented people to work with, with some exceptions. Nice facilities, although it's starting to show signs of aging. New VP of Ops has big shoes to fill but has been a great leader so far, he seems to want to get to know his employees and is good on recognition. Excited to see some changes starting to happen, but we still have a long road ahead to achieve our potential for best in class! I would love to see this company grow and become a great place to work, potential is abundant, just need to be harvested with great leadership!

    Cons

    Below average salaries! Old equipment and paper records! Top talent is not retained. Lots of Directors in Ops with long tenure that do not add anything to the organization. They do not recognize good work and are not "engaging" their employees. Actually, new leadership is needed if the company wants to become best in class! Also, there are some long term negative clock puncher employees that get away with poor behaviors and low performance, while no disciplinary action is taken, which demotivates who is trying to work hard and sends the wrong message to newer employees.

    Advice to Management

    Would love to see Hologic SD reach its potential for greatness! First of all, invest in equipment and technology, work hard to retain your top talent, offer more competitive salaries and other compensation! Do salary reviews and reward employees who work hard! Clean up the dead weight and remove negative naysayers and lower performers from Ops and QA. Ops need to be revamped. We have a good new VP, but he needs better leadership if he is to truly succeed. HR and perhaps the VPs as well should truly go talk to the workers and get honest feedback about their managers and directors. Hire more lower level employees who actually do the job and weed out current leadership of non-leaders! Ops seems to always be resource constrained, especially manufacturing. Always rushing to get the job done. Stop promoting people into manager roles that are not true leaders. Promote the ones who are! Change is needed to sustain successful growth! I really hope to see positive change within Hologic San Diego!
