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

    Pros

    Great place to work, value learning and growth. If you work hard, they will notice and reward your dedication.
    Amazing facility. Cross collaboration between departments exposes you to very bright people. Large group of talented people to mentor from. Outstanding.

    Cons

    321 is a tough road in the winter,
    Challenging at times for a commuter. Make sure to bring boots to walk.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening for feedback, keep learning always be willing to listen to any news. Even bad news is better than no news.

    Pros

    Fitness center on-site, cafeteria, lot of good employees that mean well.

    Cons

    The Hill-Rom Management that came in are anything but people persons. They want to "create" a diverse work force and cut long-time employees. The Quality Group is the worst.

    Advice to Management

    None really they would not listen as the already know everything.

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

    Pros

    I walked away with a few lifelong friends. But the ones with their noses up in the air shall try being humble.

    Cons

    People are extremely snooty. Having worked there for 30+ years, they seem to know it all except how to merge with a corporate company such as Hillrom.

    Advice to Management

    Stop expecting so much from new employees. Instead, treat them like you'd like to be treated. Welch Allyn failed as a "great company to work for" if you ask me.

    I have been working at Welch Allyn full-time

    Pros

    Some of the coworkers are genuine and a true pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    No accountability, middle management issues, lack of training and development for people getting paid as a skilled professional or even subject matter experts.

    Advice to Management

    Train people, hold them accountable for their responsibilities. Recognize those folks who are carrying the bulk of the load with little to no appreciation or compensation. When you have folks making barely enough to scrape by telling someone who makes over 100k how to do their job properly that is a severe problem in the culture of the company.


  5. "Great Place to Work"

    Pros

    Now with Hill-Rom, Welch Allyn seems to be investing in younger talent .

    Cons

    Still many people here that are too reminiscent of the "old days" when Welch Allyn was a family-owned business. Times have changed, people need to accept that.

    Pros

    makes products to help save lives.

    Cons

    train wreck management that is constantly moving without any direction. Hill-Rom purchased them so perhaps they will bring better managers but they need to get rid of almost all of the current middle engineering managers and bring in a new breed.
    Very little opportunities for advancement. In particular at the Beaverton Oregon site. They should just shut down that site all to gether IMO. Much lower pay than the industry standard.

    Advice to Management

    do better screening of your managers. bring in actual schooled managers, not just wanna be managers who are engineers who could not even do their engineering jobs so decided to go management path.
