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

    Pros

    Leading edge technology, Customer relationships, Growth industry, upside for international growth, talented employees

    Cons

    Erosion of family like atmosphere
    Concern about profitability is affecting benefits of the road warriors
    Concern about profitability is changing how we deliver training and services which has been a competitive advantage
    Morale is decreasing in the field
    Implementation of new systems have been poorly managed
    The bar keeps raising in order for us to have growth opportunities and a chance to get a higher performance rating.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your field emissaries with respect. We're out there making a decent salary, love what we do and will always represent Hologic to the best of our ability, but stop disrespecting the road warriors. Give us growth opportunities.
    Stop picking people for program implementation who don't have the required skill sets.

    Pros

    Very passionate people who really want to make the lives of their customers better. Lots of opportunities if you're willing to put in the time and effort.

    Cons

    Company is growing fast and trying to become more corporate-like in its operation. Taking a while to align everyone on direction so many sites/divisions feel the stress of limited resources as they try to maintain day to day operations while transforming their areas into something considered world class.

    Advice to Management

    There is a difference between being "engaged" at a site, and being engaged with Hologic as a whole.

    I worked at Hologic full-time

    Pros

    The only good thing I can think of is that financials are going in right direction but most of senior (long term) employees are so full of themselves.

    Cons

    - Complete disconnect between peers (specially between new comers and long term old employees)
    - non accommodating attitude towards employees.
    - Senior peers are reluctant to new technologies/ suggestions and want impose their WoW.
    - No work life balance

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

    Pros

    This company is employing excellent people, it has a noble product line, and it is thus far maintaining itself as consistent growth company.

    Cons

    The company has gone big with "Self Service" - as a means of internal growth - which means that unique expertise is not used fully - being diluted by self-service tasks (for example, engineers processing Engineering Change Orders, expense reports, etc. - rather than focusing time on engineering) - Unfortunately the Co has no way of measuring the impact that the "Self Service" trend has on expertise productivity.

    Advice to Management

    Management should create better ways to measure productivity of its contributors - how much time is actually being spent on the activities that individuals were hired for. Management should find robust ways to Identify key employees and demand the tools to appropriately reward & retain these key employees.

    Pros

    A pleasant place to work at. Nice facilities.

    Cons

    Salaries are slightly under market values compared to competitors. Lot of Organization changes that can be interpreted as an unstable company.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great if salary was more on par with market rate.
