    Lifetime carreer

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Warsaw, IN

    Prosthere are many reasons to work here. The main reason is the culture. The people are highly motivated and are easy to work with.

    ConsThe human resources department are lack luster and seem to be anti-personnel at times. Compensation has been wel below average for people that have spent their whole life contributing to Biomet.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone to give now...we have been bought. I guess get your resumes refreshed.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Wonderful Place to Work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Warsaw, IN

    ProsIncredibly relaxed, fun and open work atmosphere. Great job hiring new employees and great opportunities for lateral and vertical movement within the company.

    ConsNot quite as big as their major competitors, Zimmer, Depuy, Stryker and Smith & Nephew, however a much more innovative and socially responsible firm.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore feedback to employees on a regular basis. More on campus amenities such as a better cafeteria or a fitness room.

    A Great Opportunity

    Inventory Manager (Former Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsI enjoyed the location of Biomet, the Co-Workers within the building, and the pay I received was comparable. It was a nice place to work in general. My direct supervisor was very understanding with various personal issues I had that may/may not have intruded upon my work. I appreciated that.

    ConsHours were long sometimes, early in the morning, sometimes I was working at 2a at a hospital for a salesman who was making all the money with the commissions. Upon that, higher management was a little arrogant sometimes, but other than that- not too much. As I have said, it was a nice place to work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen a bit more to ideas

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
