It's like stepping back in time to the 1980's

I have been working at Wright Medical Group full-time

Pros

Good benefits, competitive salary, stock purchase plan

Cons

The culture is strange and not very inclusive to new employees. You'll hear a lot about process improvement and innovation but the processes utilized are antiquated. Can you say paper purchase orders? It's not at all what I was lead to believe during the interview. Shame on me for not digging deeper.
Senior leadership seems to want innovation and progress, however there is a layer just below CEO and COO (including VPs and Directors) that are interested in maintaining their empires. new ideas are not encouraged. If you play the office politics and get in with the right people (the power brokers), you can do well. If not, well it's going to be a short stay.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Plenty of advice is given during the semi annual employee survey. Apply some it.

    Communicate honestly with employees on short and long-term plans. Without this communication, it's tough to stick around at a job when you're not sure of your company's future
