    Pros

    Challenging and interesting. Certainly this company can be a challenging place to work. However with the challenge comes great interesting projects. If you want mundane and typical, ILS is not the place for you. However, if you want to build your resume with relevant skills like; new product integration as a result of an acquistion, working closely with FDA to develop a regulatory strategy for a product that touches 6 different branches, work on PMA products, meet foreign health authorites like China FDA or Japan PMDA or work for a company that is growing and not shrinking, Integra could be the place for you. Lastly, the best reason to work at Integra are the people.

    Cons

    Since the company is growing, it experiences the typical growth pains any growing company experiences.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on the infrastructure and tools employees can use to succeed.

    Director of Regulatory Affairs Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Integra LifeSciences.

    Interview Details

    what was initially described as a straight forward process (phone interview followed by two face to face interviews) turned out to be a complete disrespect of my time. From the phone interview to the first face to face interview was two weeks. from the first face to face to the second; 1 month and still counting. I actually stopped the clock by requesting that I be removed from consideration because the time spent waiting for people to do their job is ridiculous. Anyone that has an efficient process in place, would not take 2+ months to fill a [critical] position that supposedly there is a need to fill. in fact, I was told that they were still very interested. I was also told that I was one of a few that was selected to go forward to the second and final face to face interview. but, rather than get scheduled for that final interview, I noted that the company had reposted the position 3 times total since scheduling me for my first face to face; twice since my first face to face interview. I considered the first reposting to be due diligence on their part. I consider the 2nd and 3rd reposting to be game playing and wasting my time. If a company is no longer interested in a candidate, the professional thing to do is to let that candidate know that. To string someone along because a) you may not have as many candidates as you would like for me to believe and b) you don't place a high priority on hiring talent is both unprofessional and disrespectful.
