    I have been working at Integra LifeSciences full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Starting pay is OK. Most employees are friendly. Social committee. Location is small, but backed by larger entity.

    Cons

    Hard to get work accomplished because one problems leads to many more problems. Constantly fixing the mistakes of current and former employees. If you are temp you might eventually get hired but it will take a LONG time. Trying to fix a broken system with another messed up system. I hear it's hard to advance in pay and career. Poor comunication throughout other divisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If a manager says the department is understaffed, then it is! Fill the needs.

    Pros

    Integra is at a true inflection point, transitioning from a scrappy small company to one focused on achieving the scale that is required for long-term success. A new senior management team is bringing vision, better communication, and significant investments in new infrastructure and processes. All of this creates opportunity. It's an exciting time to be working here!

    Cons

    Compensation is low. Expectations are high. Like many companies, there are not enough people to do what's required. Successful employees are able to clearly communicate what is and isn't possible. Unsuccessful employees try to do it all and burn out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You get what you pay for. We can't afford high turnover. Fix the comp issue, set expectations with the street that this is required and will have an impact on earnings, and keep communicating to employees that you're aware of our shortcomings and are working to address them.

    I have been working at Integra LifeSciences full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Competitive salary, bagels on pay days

    Cons

    Absolutely no training!! You have to literally beg people for their time and when you finally get it the training is minimal at best - you are left to your own devices to figure things out and when things go sideways you are the first person to be blamed! There are no training manuals to refer to and there is a lack of cooperation on a daily basis. I was flown back to corporate HQ for training and it took AR over 2 months to reimburse my expenses!! Often times issues go unattended for weeks at a time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Incorporate a company wide training program!! Give your new employees a training manual and resources in able to do their job effectively.
