    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!!

    Pros

    Working is the medical field is interesting! The field assistant or intern position is great for someone who can work flexible hours for low pay. The benefits are great, especially free health insurance- yes you heard me right! The office staff was great to work with and learn from.

    Cons

    Sometimes the office gets very busy and you are asked to come in very early or stay late. The pay is less than what you might expect given the nature of the work and the expensive equipment you are handling. Flexible hours can sometimes turn into required hours when the office gets too busy. They have no budget for maintenance to the company delivery van, which is used daily, and carries expensive medical equipment. Although your boss is the sales manager, he is rarely in the office or available.

    Advice to Management

    The Albuquerque branch manager previously worked as a sport's coach in high school with a degree in education. This company is willing to hire from anywhere for their sales staff, but this also means the branch had very poor management due to a lack of experience and training. Most of the office staff was reasonable, but when disagreements occurred there was no manager to step in and resolve them.
    As an intern, there was no defined course to pursue further employment with the company or a full time position. To a big degree, getting hired in medical device sales is who you know or who you can meet and impress.

    Pros

    I worked in 5 different positions during my tenure and enjoyed elements of each one. 3 weeks paid vacation per year foe years 1-10. I only left the company due to an out-of-state move.

    Cons

    Things have changed greatly since 2003 when I started. Insurance has gone downhill significantly. the industry itself is very economically dependent, when the economy took a dive the company suffered greatly
