I worked at Zimmer (more than 10 years)

Pros

Loved the people I worked with, they made it amazing.

Cons

Employees are not treated as humans, they are treated like computers. Management acts like they were trained at the local zoo. (ONLY AT THE CORPORATE LEVEL) Training was horrible, just a bunch of people (Managers) sitting around and telling you how you will do something or else.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You have some very talented individuals working for this organization. Take into consideration their lives and families. Larger companies have fallen because of poor management. Eventually the sheep will not come back to the farm if the poor management continues.

    I have been working at Zimmer full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get your pay check and vacations
    Only one company that has lot of job opportunities in the town

    Cons

    Very bad IT management team
    Not willing to work here for too long.
    Reviews are very much biased and single sided
    Layoffs every year based on nothing
    Lot of work, but nothing is achieved.
    No proper planning
    Red tape everywhere
    Process to implement a change is more complicated than the change itself. You will spend your life working on the process rather than the change itself. Horrible!!...change management team, who are gate keepers, but behave as CIO of company. Same as with some admin assistants.

    This place is dirty and the building does not seem to be like a IT building, have antique coffee maker and microwave. But microwave got replaced with some cheap version as the older one burnt out. The pantry supplies are always very very limited.

    only one urinals for the entire IT staff!!!...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adapt to change, keep people who can work not who can play politics.

    I have been working at Zimmer full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    paycheck, can be used as a stepping stone to get experience for another orthopedic company, which many have done. Pretty good pay for small town.

    Cons

    extreme stress, everyone in management afraid to make decision. gestapo like leadership at top. Every year since present top management took over employees have seen benefits taken away, such as medical insurance for retirees, paid holidays, and shares of stock options that had previously been given as incentive for good work. The lawyer and his minions want it all. The company has been sued twice in last 5 years for dishonest practices. Go figure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    leave, and replace with people who are honest and know how to run a business that cares about it's employees.
