I worked at Zimmer as an intern (more than a year)

Pros

the people are great and always willing to help. They have pretty good training.

Cons

they don't seem to plan ahead much. just before i left they hired a lot of people and 4 months later they did a big layoff and not long after that, they laid off more.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Plan ahead more.

    I have been working at Zimmer full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The best attribute about working at Zimmer Spine in Austin is the tight-knit group of employees. We have a great team of talented individuals who strive to produce quality products for the ultimate satisfaction of knowing their efforts will help to improve someone's quality of life.

    Cons

    Zimmer Spine could use a bit of upper management cleanup. The current leadership team has elected to close the Austin facility and eliminate the livelihood of 100+ employees. Not unlike what Zimmer did in the early 2000 when it purchased Sulzer Orthopedics and within a few years transferred operations out of state.

    I worked at Zimmer full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Awesome views, campus, and people that are not Senior Level Management.

    Cons

    Once again mid level management is treated as if they are of no value. Lead the teams of worker bees but slam us on performance. When in reality sales are strong, on time delivery is in the high 90th percentile, and Op Com is getting their bonuses and money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need an empathetic and empowering leadership style. Dovarak spends more time on private jets, his bonus, and pleasing OpCom.
