    I worked at Zimmer full-time

    Pros

    Competitive Benefits (medical and bonuses), Good products, good people, good location (not Warsaw) and financially stable.

    Cons

    Salary not competitive, Warsaw Central Mentality, No Career Path, minimal recognition, no differences in merit increases (top and poor performer), Mid management level afraid or unwilling to make decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Identify high performers and develop a program to prepare them for higher roles within the organization (at all levels) not just directors. Career Development is an important tool to retain talent.. Medical device knowledge is not only found in Warsaw. This is a global company make use of employee knowledge and skill sets accordingly. Don't be afraid to cut dead weight. Demotions and promotions should be truly justified and not based on the I don't like or like you mentality.

    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.
