    Pros

    I like the support I get from my staff team and functional support teams. My peers are knowledgeable and easy to work with. The operating teams are open and receptive to change. A tremendous amount of experience and skill makes the amount of technology we use appear simple to apply to our processes. The company is investing in technology everywhere.

    Cons

    Some teams are ahead of others related to continuous improvement. The teams are all aligned to the same goals and metrics yet somewhat autonomous in the way they are managed to achieve goals.

    Advice to Management

    Share a single vision of what the future of our business will be. Where are we going and how are we going to get there?

    Pros

    Zimmer has the best product on the market. The people at Zimmer are extremely willing to help you succeed professionally.

    Cons

    Work long hours, 10-12 hour days. Pay was below average. Few other of the employees were lazy, and caused low productivity to others.

    Pros

    The company produces great industry leading products. The facilities are wonderful and the tools available to complete the job are fully available. There are many opportunities for advancement in the professional and lower level management roles. There is a tremendous focus on changing the culture and it's beginning to take root. Executive Management listens and acts appropriately. Culture shaping is creating an environment of collaboration which is positive and productive. Excellent pay and low cost of living. People at Zimmer and in Warsaw in general are exceptionally friendly. Love the small town atmosphere.

    Cons

    There is a lot of angst about job security since the intended purchase of Biomet was announced. This has created employee posturing that is counterproductive.

    Advice to Management

    Accelerate the naming of the remainder leaders in the new organization in order to eliminate the tension and posturing. Continue to drive the culture shaping.
