I worked at Zimmer

Pros

Safe facilities
Solid Pay and Benefits
Good Talent

Cons

If you could not run for congress you won't succeed at Zimmer, play the politics game, eat at the right lunch table and your golden. If you don't you are in a world of misery. You can transform and entire department and find yourself on the outside looking in if you have not greased the right people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Break the political structure, it is killing the company. Value documented performance not who you like because they make you feel better.

    I have been working at Zimmer

    Pros

    Good Pay. Benefits ok. Co-workers were nice. Walking path nearby and on-site workout facility. Great cafeteria with good variety of food.

    Cons

    Hourly office workers held to different standards than salary. No flexibility towards employees needing to change work hours in order to further education. Employees felt as if they were walking on egg shells around managers. Rigid dress code for employees never in contact with customers. No balance between work/life for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to treat the people working for you. People are not disposable. You can get superior work done and treat people well at the same time.

    I worked at Zimmer

    Pros

    Benifits are great and the yearly bonus was always in the 12 to 14% range.

    Cons

    Biased review process, based off of Managers opinion with no feed back from coworkers. Lot of micromanageing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Send Managers to some managment skills cources and show more respect to the staff.
