    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    None to give now...we have been bought. I guess get your resumes refreshed.

    I have been working at Biomet

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Not quite as big as their major competitors, Zimmer, Depuy, Stryker and Smith & Nephew, however a much more innovative and socially responsible firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Biomet

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

    Hours 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 ManagementAdvice
