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

    Pros

    The work experience really depends on the team you are working with. I had the opportunity to work with a very supportive and passionate team who cares deeply about the team and department goals. It is great to have upper management who understands the difficulties of particular projects and assign additional support where necessary to help complete our tasks.

    Cons

    At a smaller branch, there are definitely constraints with budget, work space, and time. Sometimes you would have to switch gears and drop projects, but that's understandable in any company to have priorities.

    Pros

    Decent products and benefits. Work life balance.

    Cons

    The company keeps getting worse and not getting better. The management in place doesn’t seem to have a handle on what is going on. Most don’t understand the aesthetic industry or know what’s happening on the ground level. Capital sales team is leaving due to unobtainable goals and people continue to get pay decreases with impossible goals. Culture has been completely broken and foundation is breaking. HR doesn’t have anyone’s back. A lot of playing favorites as well. No empathy for anyone who had pay decreases with the expectation to keep a smile on their face and not worry about bills. However, the company is slipping and not making numbers, making it look bad to Wall Street right now. Midwest territory has completely fallen apart. High complaint rate of misinformation about salary and job expectations given during interviews. Many new hires on the way out already. Leadership scrambling to adjust pay structure again after mass exodus and losing top talent.

    Advice to Management

    Stop putting people in management who have no understanding of this industry and start making obtainable sales goals. Don’t expect to decrease people’s pay, not allow them to grow, and then treat them poorly that they went elsewhere due to a stressful environment.

    I worked at Hologic full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some good people, good benefits, good products on the market, work-life balance, gym, cafeteria (although $$$), location.

    Cons

    Bullies are rewarded and promoted, no real products in the pipeline for the Dx platform, no funding of research, marketing has huge turnover, people leaving the company for new pastures, annual layoffs really puts everyone on notice.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in new product development, abandon the "engagement" as no one believes in it. Commanding people to be engaged is absurd.
