I have been working at Synthes

Pros

they give a lot of vacation time and allow you to use it. They make products that improve people's lives. Co-workers mostly seem to be nice and there's a good deal of job stability.

Cons

In production, they're stuck on how things have always been done. not very open to change or new ideas.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More cooperation between quality and manufacturing departments is needed.
