Former Employee - Marketing Manager  in  Warsaw, IN
Former Employee - Marketing Manager in Warsaw, IN

I worked at Zimmer full-time for more than a year

Pros

Strong industry training, great products, good pipeline with people who genuinely care about what they are doing. The company does have high standards for product quality.

Cons

Location is a challenge being in Warsaw, IN. It was a struggle to see the organization lacking the ability to adapt quickly to the ever changing med device industry as pricing pressures continue to mount.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I'd suggest they work on continuing to buy innovative technologies to bring into their existing sales channel. Their sales channel is exceptionally strong and with smart "buys" to fill their portfolio they will continue to succeed.

    I worked at Zimmer full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    They pay you. That's all I can think of.

    Cons

    There is no leadership and they pit employees against each other. You can't trust your manager or your coworker. Prior to the David Dvorak years Zimmer was an OK place to work. Since 2007, it has been very bad with very low morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start treating employees like they are worthwhile. To say you value employees and then to cut 5% of your workforce each year destroys teamwork and causes employees to look out for only themselves. Some of the best employees at Zimmer (helpful, hard working) were voted off the island by the sharks.

    I worked at Zimmer as an intern for less than a 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.
