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.
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.

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.
Quality Engineer - Intern (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – January 26, 2018
I really like the culture of the company in a fast-paced environment. It has emerged from much of the turmoil of the past to be one of the strongest biotechnology companies with significant presence in San Diego. Some of the key strengths include: Strong leadership team Clear commitment to growth and performance Exceptional products based on innovative science Fantastic people, …
Scientist IV (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – January 14, 2018
Poor management and managers. Does not value employees. Lots of good employees were let go/left on themselves after Hologic acquired Gen-Probe. R&D was better during Gen-Probe days. No effort to retain talented employees.
Internal Audit Intern (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – January 2, 2018

Anonymous (Former Employee) – Danbury, CT – November 22, 2017
Small company with specialized jobs. Not much room for advancement and especially not for the administrative type jobs. Management was free to do as they please which can be great - yet also allows for a lot of poor choices and management to occur.
Despite my horrible employment - I will always use their products as a customer as they are truly superior products. And they should be for the blood, sweat, and tears that their employees put into them.
cut throat cost savings within co. large charitable contributions to cancer survivors - what??
worker (Current Employee) – Danbury, CT – November 16, 2017
over the last 6-8 years with new management downsizing, cutting costs going to other countries for manufacturing, threatening the outside contributors and threatening employees has turned Hologic from a company who cares for their employees to a company doing whatever it takes to get to the bottom line - double digit savings in engineering, manufacturing, operations. However, Marketing and Sales is as rich as a company can get. but that's what the new management is all about - LOOKS, not security and caring for their employees. Just look at their booth(s) at the yearly trade show...
