    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.

  2. A great place to work!

    Pros

    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.

    Pros

    Excellent leadership and amazing company culture. Biomet has shaped me so much as a professional and I owe them a lot. I loved the people I worked with, as everyone is friendly and welcoming. It is super nice to work with down to earth people rather than egotistic title pusher jerks. In Biomet you will for sure grow and be respected for what you do.

    Cons

    Just got acquired to Zimmer, its a pity this company will have to merge with a company with such a radical different culture.
    Salaries aren't super great.

    Advice to Management

    Don't sell the company!!

    Pros

    a large company with the small town appeal. The company realy cares about the product they make and the customer they supplied to.

    Cons

    If you made a mistake there was no chance to go back and correct it. One mistake and they remove everyone who was working on the order.

    Advice to Management

    A little room for learning coach the person not being held accountable for someone elses mistake
