    Pros

    Very good organisation and wonderful products. Medical fraternity fond of using the products. Good support from the Product team. Good environment

    Cons

    Poor growth if you dont have good connection with top bosses. Favoritism and ex company people whom they work with are given advantages and promotions. if you dont have a god father you are lost and if not will not get promoted and given minimal attention,Poor self discipline and boozing overall with out limits at all levels and no proper respect. Just no game and no proper plan for organisation spread. Mostly firefighting at month end and at dealers

    Advice to Management

    Revamp the TOP management and bring a rule of multicultural and multiracial to work with. No excollegues 100^% it spoils the team spirit

    Pros

    a large company with the small town appeal. The company realy cares about the product they make and the customer they supplied to.

    Cons

    If you made a mistake there was no chance to go back and correct it. One mistake and they remove everyone who was working on the order.

    Advice to Management

    A little room for learning coach the person not being held accountable for someone elses mistake

    Pros

    Good people to work with. Your peers and managers want you to succeed.

    Cons

    Multiple changes with upper management over the past few years and lost the core values of what used to make B3i great. Merger announced with Zimmer acquisition creates a lot of uncertainty in the future direction of B3i employees. Always trying to get leaner and more efficient to cut back on the bottom line which leads to increased responsibility and stress with less compensation and reduced benefits annually.

    Advice to Management

    Compensate those that do more and get back to taking care of the internal and external customers that lead to all the initial growth that B3i used to have.

    The new healthcare policy has a great affect on medical devices and working in the industry may not be as exciting as it once was

    Pros

    Relaxed dresscode and many still work as a team. Opportunity to learn different areas of opperations and business practices.

    Cons

    Big corporate environment. Some positions assume you are available 24/7 and penalize if you are not (during vacation or medical leave). Pay is ok for the area.

    Advice to Management

    Hiring and advancement opportunities of females needs to improve. Corporate culture still maintains a glass ceiling and only has a couple of females in top-level positions as well as all through-out the company.
