Fun work environment with friendly, smart employees.

Former Employee - Research Engineer in Warsaw, IN
Former Employee - Research Engineer in Warsaw, IN

I worked at Zimmer as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Real research with impact at a leading medical implants company. Research department really tries to promote innovation with a fun work environment.

Cons

Warsaw, Indiana is not a very exciting town for young people. As an intern, not much is expected so sometimes it was hard to see other interns/co-ops not doing any work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the positive attitude toward interns and co-ops.

    Salary average

    Cons

    "Real" Training is Non-Existent
    Employee Morale is very Low
    Executive management disruptive and counterproductive to the product development process.
    Employee confidence and trust in management is non-existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop real strategies for growth and then actually try to stick to the plan. In the incredible efforts exerted to meet the established goals for your yearly reviews, it is clear that you have overlooked actually doing your jobs.

    Former Employee - Senior Management in Warsaw, IN

    I worked at Zimmer full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good compensation. Talented and motivated people who want to do the right thing.

    Cons

    Horrible mismanagement from the top. Archaic style of management by fear vs. inspiration. Lack of understanding of the basic principles of good servant leadership. Introspective focus vs. customer focus. Growth within the organization tie back to political allegiances vs. doing the right thing by the customer and shareholder. Too much focus on minutia and not enough on vision, strategic direction. People are not empowered to speak their mind nor take significant action to positively impact the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to focus your attention on how to better foster inspirational leadership; one that empowers rather causing fear, drive accountability based on measurable performance; not politics.
