    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!

    Pros

    Good manager and nice co-workers

    Cons

    Poor matching for 401k and starting salaries should match with other companies in the same business

    Advice to Management

    Increase your 401K match.

    I have been working at Hologic full-time

    Pros

    I can't say for the rest of the groups at Hologic, but for my group you will learn a lot as you will dealing with various departments such as R&D, Quality, and Regulatory Affairs. Such interactions will definitely enable you learn and pick up new skills and apply them.

    Cons

    As mentioned, this was a manufacturing position as such it was viewed as less important by upper management (at least from what I can tell) and as a result you get the short end of the stick when it comes to compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Just because you lump certain groups under the Manufacturing umbrella, doesn't mean they should be considered merely manufacturing.

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

    Pros

    I interviewed with Hologic as a temp and now I have a full-time job. There are temp roles that can lead to perm positions if you do a good job

    Cons

    When the performance review happens there are considerations for time in role and with the company that way the people will be more engaged

    Advice to Management

    Focus on what can be done now by the candidate instead of how long the person had been in the job

    Pros

    People working for Hologic are really dedicated to women's health and to saving lives. It is a very dynamic company with a lot of potential.

    Cons

    Achieving work/ life balance can be impossible sometimes. Changing the mindset of people and getting anything done leads to lots of roadblocks that need to be removed.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees that have been with the company for a long time. They have a lot of knowledge and value to contribute.

    Pros

    Great products for women. Nice group of co-workers.

    Cons

    Departments are top heavy. Not willing to add more staff to departments when needed and be pinged for not reaching goals

    Advice to Management

    Reevaluate departments and add staff. It will help retain the good workers, increase moral and not force people to leave because there is no work-life balance.
