    Pros

    Family of coworkers. Individuality. Pleasant atmosphere. Diverse company of people. Great community outreach. Jeff Binder. Long-standing presence in the Warsaw, Indiana and Winona Lake communities.

    Cons

    Temporary assignment policies. Company is being bought by a company with much less heart. Certain management members do not care about you or your perspective.

    Advice to Management

    You should be more choosy about who gets to become a manager. Just because your workers are good at what they do, that does not mean that they are good at getting others to do the same.

  3. I interned at Biomet during the summer of 2014. I loved the versatility and autonomy that I was given with my position.

    Pros

    Biomet is a great company to work for. The culture is one big team working towards the same goal. Brilliant people who know how to have fun and work hard to get amazing things done. They treat their co-ops like full time employees and give them good responsibility. I was in the biomaterials department where I got awesome hands-on lab experience, project management, and experimental design.

    Cons

    With the recent acquisition of this company by Zimmer the culture may change. Living in Warsaw was not what I was looking for in my 20s. It is more fun in the summer and their is a younger crowd to hang out with but there is not a ton to do in the area.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in R&D to keep the company as a global leader in technology.

    The company culture is great. You honestly feel like most coworkers have a vested interest in the company and work together to achieve successful outcomes.

    Cons

    Biomet was recently purchased by a competitor and is amidst a great deal of change. Uncertainty about the future has resulted in a somewhat stressful environment at times.

    Advice to Management

    Carry the Biomet culture into the new combined company. Continue to be as transparent as possible to team members.
