How employees describe working at Halyard Health

Employee in the Alpharetta office

Feels like sitting on an understaffed rudderless sailing boat destined for scrappage ages ago and now finally going under on the choppy waters of current market conditions.

Supply Leadership Unskilled and unprofessional

Dull. Frustrating. Slow. I like to catch up on my reading in the afternoons. Well-compensated for the little I do.

Q&A With Halyard Health Employees

Asked to all employees at Halyard Health

  • Consider the life decisions that have gotten you there, and work on making some much-needed changes.

Asked to all employees at Halyard Health

  • Yeah, I don't know. Maybe you live in Atlanta and you want to be in a health care or medical device company. Either you need to move, or work for the few options you've got there. Halyard (and now Avanos) is one such option. Other than that, it's about as typical a company as you're going to find in any industry. Work there will look and feel like work anywhere else. You do you.

Asked to all employees at Halyard Health

  • Technically, the work from home policy is to handle it with your manager directly. HR doesn't police it, and there isn't a system to track it. These are sorted on a case-by-case basis, based on your role and priority list. Having said that, that is a traditional company and face time is currency. Taking advantage of a flexible work schedule will limit your advancement opportunities. It is neither fair nor unfair--it just is. Know that going in to it.

  • Nope. Not telling you. I will say that the hardest part of the interview is the presentation of the challenge assignment at the beginning. If you bomb that, you'll be escorted out.

  • Depends on the position. If you're a functional leaders, you'll meet with your hiring manager and your peers in other functions. If you're interviewing as an individual contributor, you'll meet mostly with peers in your department. Maybe a cross-functional person, but that's rare.

Asked to all employees at Halyard Health

  • Depends--which engineering team? Alpharetta will want you in a standard business attire. Irvine is little looser and will not mind seeing some personality. But engineers of all stripes, regardless of where you're interviewing, go buy an interview outfit from this year, please. I'm tired of seeing these wide, patterned ties, and straight-cut suit coats that you obviously haven't worn in years, and scuffed shoes that only come out on "special" occasions. No need to be a cliche' of the dull engineer, yeah?

Asked to the Engineering Department at Halyard Health

  • Depends on which team you end up in. They are all objective-driven. They are competitive. They are tough. And they all get their chance under the lights. But the Directors are all very different, so do some homework if you want a better answer.

Asked to the Engineering Department at Halyard Health

  • The VP is good guy. Tough, but fair. Protective of his engineers. It is an objective-based system, befitting the engineering drive of SMART goals. The Directors vary widely; but all drive in the direction set by the VP. Your mileage may vary, depending on which group you land in.

Asked to all employees at Halyard Health

  • Depends on where you are. The Irvine office is pretty diverse. About 55/45 Male-female; ethnically diverse as well, but that is reflective of the Southern California tech community. Alpharetta is less diverse, reflecting the community of the Northern Atlanta suburbs.

  • Slower than it should be, but again this will vary by Franchise. The HQ-based and legacy franchises have a reputation for a slower pace of work. The newer, growth businesses as well as satellite franchises have a reputation for a faster and more aggressive work style.

Asked to all employees at Halyard Health

  • It depends on the team. HYH itself does not sponsor or give specific guidance on team outings, so it winds up at the discretion of the team leader. I am a team leader, and my team outings are awesome. Others are less so. ;)
