    Pros

    Agressive, innovative engineers. The company seeks creative opportunities rather than me-too products found at the competitors. Hard work is rewarded and recognized.

    Cons

    Political executives focused on protecting their position. Several executives do not allow those below them to shine too brightly. The good news is, they don't last too long in their position.

    Pros

    Family of coworkers. Individuality. Pleasant atmosphere. Diverse company of people. Great community outreach. Jeff Binder. Long-standing presence in the Warsaw, Indiana and Winona Lake communities.

    Cons

    Temporary assignment policies. Company is being bought by a company with much less heart. Certain management members do not care about you or your perspective.

    Advice to Management

    You should be more choosy about who gets to become a manager. Just because your workers are good at what they do, that does not mean that they are good at getting others to do the same.

    Pros

    The company culture is great. You honestly feel like most coworkers have a vested interest in the company and work together to achieve successful outcomes.

    Cons

    Biomet was recently purchased by a competitor and is amidst a great deal of change. Uncertainty about the future has resulted in a somewhat stressful environment at times.

    Advice to Management

    Carry the Biomet culture into the new combined company. Continue to be as transparent as possible to team members.

    Pros

    Excellent leadership and amazing company culture. Biomet has shaped me so much as a professional and I owe them a lot. I loved the people I worked with, as everyone is friendly and welcoming. It is super nice to work with down to earth people rather than egotistic title pusher jerks. In Biomet you will for sure grow and be respected for what you do.

    Cons

    Just got acquired to Zimmer, its a pity this company will have to merge with a company with such a radical different culture.
    Salaries aren't super great.

    Advice to Management

    Don't sell the company!!
