I worked at Biomet

Pros

Very casual dress code, good pay for the location, decent benefits package, interesting company to work for and the field is growing.

Cons

Definitely a "good old boys" club of senior management. The finance dept. has definite communication problems and very little feedback is given as to your job performance until your review. Upper management in finance difficult to work for, communication amongst the department is terrible and there is a lot of gossip behind peoples backs. Warsaw itself is a very religious, small conservative town and if you aren't conservative and religious it can be tough to take.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communication needs to be improved. There are different standards for upper management and other employees as far as expectations for time in the office, etc. This should be addressed.

    Pros

    Incredibly relaxed, fun and open work atmosphere. Great job hiring new employees and great opportunities for lateral and vertical movement within the company.

    Cons

    Not quite as big as their major competitors, Zimmer, Depuy, Stryker and Smith & Nephew, however a much more innovative and socially responsible firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More feedback to employees on a regular basis. More on campus amenities such as a better cafeteria or a fitness room.

    Biomet is a very political company consisting of the good ole boys club. You are either in the club or you are not.

    I have been working at Biomet

    Pros

    It's a job. You can wear shorts to work. Only 2 reasons that I can think of.

    Cons

    Very political company. Good ole boys club - females are paid considerably less than males. Stock options are given to some, but not all in similiar positions. Biomet has alot of very arrogant people that work there. It's like there is a club and you are in it or not in it. Upper management runs the company like a ma & pa sweat shop with very little interaction, direction, or feedback. For the companies I have worked for since graduating from college, I truely have to say Biomet is lacking good management, low benefits, little respect for people, integrity and a genuine caring attitude. I have never been associated with a company that is so lacking of consistency in rules and regulations from one employee to the next. It is ok for some to do things a certain way...but others not in the club it is not ok. It is very tough to work in an environment where the rules aren't consistent for everyone. There is also an attitude within Biomet that knowledge is power.....so if you have the information no one will share it with you. There is a constant fear and intimidation factor that plays into some employees within the company where they do not want others to be successful out of fear of loosing their own position. It is a very tough environment to be in. If you are up for the challenge then go for it...but my personal advice is stay as far away from this company as possible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show an attitude of appreciation and care that is genuine to your employees. Talk the talk and walk the walk. Mnay employees in the Management, Director, Vice President level need to change. There are truely many individuals that are over their heads in positions they have no idea what they are doing. Someone needs to come into this company and sweep house and move in leaders that lead with Integrity and Respect. Their is an arrogance of protection among those who have never signed non-competes that their jobs are protected. There is also an arrogance among many employees of constant dis-respect in the work place. There is never a place for this in any business environment. To make the record strait I am not referring to Mr. Binder in any of these comments I have made.
