Scientist (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – July 30, 2018
Goals change through the year, budget cuts are frequent and no long term vision. The people do excellent work, work hard and quality is the highest priority but management doesn't seem to be interested in its employees.
Some excellent people, location, work-life balance
Sr. Director (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – July 2, 2018
During my tenure at Hologic I found the company a great place to work. management was demanding while also allowing for work life balance. Management set realistic expectations and really worked with employees to solve issues as they arose.
Clinical Finance Assistant (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – June 26, 2018
Pretty mellow work place, doesn't seem to be micro management going on. Most people here seem to work hard and are really smart. There are a ton of temporary employees. Managers in my department are understanding, but work is the priority. Not many department related events/functions though. There is a food cube people will bring snacks or breakfast to every now and then, that's about it.
CREDIT ANALYST (Former Employee) – Marlborough, MA – June 15, 2018
Great place to work but preferential treatment given to single moms over the older employees with either no kids or grown up kids. Is good that it a Foosball table and hockey game to break up the day. Has flexible hours and ability to work from home which many people take advantage of.
Upper Management has the good of the employees in their actions.
Training Coordinator (Former Employee) – Marlborough, MA – May 30, 2018
Good company if you are in the right division. Great people, hard workers. Culture is corporate, but not stuffy. Most enjoyable part was co-workers. Hardest part was layoffs of very veteran employees over the last couple of years.
Good benefits, great insurance (BC/BS), good starting vacation time
Incoming Quality Inspector (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – April 23, 2018
I really enjoyed the work, but the environment/culture was very difficult to navigate.. It was fine to gain skills and do something I enjoyed. The hours were long initially, but they were doable. I had a good manager who was willing to help and be a good support person.The hardest part of the job was circumventing constant drama, which makes it challenging to work.
Field Service Engineer II (Current Employee) – Tampa, FL – April 20, 2018
Hologic is a good place for seasoned engineers that like to work together and keep all instrumentation working a seamless as possible. Hardest part of everything was such tight deadlines for everything.
Good Money/Good People
Some Odd Fashion Thinking, a lot of management confusion
CRM Application Administrator\Analyst (Former Employee) – Marlboro, MA – April 6, 2018
Worked with sales operations to support CRM system. Account Managers, Sales Analysts and all of Hologic, Over 1000 users worldwide to include training on new and existing business processes. Worked on territory management, quarterly and daily reporting. Also worked closely with Upper Management to analyze process and procedures to make it easier for Sales reps.
Group Leader (Former Employee) – Bedford, MA – March 25, 2018
Every day was new with a different challenge with each new machine built. Learned about computers when started and had the opportunity to constantly update my troubleshooting skills helping the other Techs dealing with issues they would run into.
Overall I found everyone to be very welcoming and helpful, everyone from marketing, to finance, to engineering intermingled. People were always willing to share knowledge and experience. However, on the side of general management, the upper echelons seemed unaware of the needs of their workers, and there was a greater focus on short term growth, instead of employee well being and product development.
Sr. Director of Marketing (Current Employee) – Santa Clara, CA – February 22, 2018
Unlike any organization I have been part of, Hologic's employees are among the most passionate. They live and breather the mission of not allowing one woman to be without the benefits of proper breast screening.
An interesting entry level job, but an entry level job nonetheless
Process Development Chemist II (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – February 9, 2018
While I believe that I learned a lot working as as a Chemist at Hologic, there is no doubt (at least when it comes to this position) that there is seriously low chance of career advancement in addition to the compensation for the amount of work that needs to be done. However, I do recommend this position to new graduates as it is a entry level position whose managers care about you learning as much as you can during the time you are there. Also, this position is considered a manufacturing position hence the low pay even though it is a multidisciplinary position that will require you to learn and retain a lot of information.
