    Former Employee - Engineer I in Utica, NY

    I worked at CONMED Corporation full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    No one really cares if you show up late or sleep at your desk.
    They hire people with no experience, so it is a good way to get entry level experience.

    Cons

    - Salary was very below market.
    - Management style was more outdated then the "technology" they use.
    - No transparency, never had any idea what was priority, what managements plan was
    - You can only move up / get promoted if there is a "company need."
    - No accountability. Decisions made by management behind closed doors without rationale, lower engineers supposed to agree and sign off these decisions with little or no confirmation.
    - Women are not represented well in engineering nor respected by management. Ex. Management stated "women are like Pavlov's dogs - easily trainable"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop your talent. Don't promote based on last name. Treat women fairly.

    I worked at CONMED Corporation full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the people were nice, there was a feeling that non-management was "in it" together

    Cons

    - Pay was well below market
    - Extremely outdated management styles and systems
    - Us vs. them mentality with managers/salaried and hourly employees
    - Salaried employees took advantage of not having to clock hours
    - No trust; everyone was afraid for their jobs and management would not be truthful about the state of the branch
    - No room to move up
    - They would hire "temporary" employees to get around paying for benefits and requesting the open positions, and it created more of a hierarchy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more honest with employees and treat them as equals. Implement better workplace practices and create a more enjoyable work environment. Stop hiring perma-temps to avoid paying for benefits and just push for the requisition.

    I worked at CONMED Corporation full-time

    Pros

    The pay was decent, however there is little opportunity for promotion. There are a handful of wonderful people within the company.

    Cons

    Discombobulated management, unprofessional attitude, high pressure, absolute lack of encouragement or support towards employees. Decisions based on personal preferences rather than the actual business needs of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure upper management so that the department leaders are those who make educated decisions based on the success of the company.
