    Not bad, but not interesting. Warehouse work really.

    Material Handler (Former Employee)
    Utica, NY

    ProsThe people are really nice, there is a lot of diversity in the different cultures of the staff living there. If you are a full-time employee there are some benefits and overtime opportunities.

    ConsRepetitive actions, motions, fast-paced machine-based work. Not always fun to be a machine operator or even a material handler. It can be quite rushed and stressful as the schedule must be met.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI have no advice really. The facilities may soon be moving to Mexico. It was a bit rough. The supervisors might seem to care about you, but they really don't. All I ever got was empty promises from them.

    ConMed is a stable work invironment that often unfairly deals with it's professional staff.

    Perceptions from years ago linger and may hinder your upward mobility

    Limited Pay with the expectation to excell.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Largo, FL

    ProsThe people are excellent and the job is challenging. The medical field does not get hit that hard by the economic downturn.

    ConsLack of mid-level management. More upper level jobs are being created with too few support for those positions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore emphasis is needed on people and salary increases.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good Company..... insufficient investment in people, systems and technology

    Senior Engineer (Current Employee)
    Utica, NY

    ProsConMed has significant challenges, and being able to handle major and minor tasks to completion is highly valued. The staff is friendly, and there is very little distance to reach upper management. Management is receptive to ideas, and are keen to fund projects.

    ConsUpper management is short sighted, and does not understand the path to organic organization development. There is rampant nepotism (fam & friends) and this is disheartening to most employees. There is no strategy (at least communicated to anyone), and the company seems to lurch from minor problem to major incident.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop a strategy, map out the plan to get there & invest in the systems and people to get there.

    End the nepotism, please. This is shameful!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Be prepared to have someone take credit for your work and to sabotage any promotion you deserve.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Largo, FL

    ProsExcellent benefits and lots of time off. Hourly employees receive 2 weeks vacation, plus 48 hours PTO. And 13 holidays!

    ConsEveryone is out to save their jobs. Lots of backstabbing and gossiping. All of the executives still receive HUGE bonuses even as people are escorted out the door. Gotta make the numbers! How can you keep office emplyees who do not know how to use computers??? While escorting hardworking contributors out the door.

    Advice to Senior ManagementClean out executive row!! Notice they remodeled that area to keep the riff raff out! Upgrades to landscaping while hard workers lose their jobs. Come on Joe!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
