    I have been working at Smith & Nephew full-time (more than 10 years)


    Have worked in this company for 10+ years. S&N has always maintained a leadership position in the field of medical devices (orthopedics, endoscopy, wound management,....). The products the company sells are of great quality and help people regain their lives. Employees understand this and helps in building and maintaining the company culture. The majority of employees are quite friendly and they are the best asset the company has. Benefits have always been quite competitive.


    The company has changed quite a bit in the last 3-5 years. It used to be much more positive and employees were like family. The current CEO, Olivier Bohuon, has implemented many radical changes and changed the way employees think about the company. Bohuon has focused on acquiring other companies to continue to grow S&N. His strategy has also emphasized cost reductions through the entire company, closing several manufacturing sites and offices. Some of the cost reduction measures are quite silly when the company could be doing things better to save money. Benefits continue to be reduced compared to years ago, mainly around health insurance (however, they are still fair).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to find ways to reduce costs by looking into how employees can improve the company.
