    Former Employee - Customer Service Representative in Largo, FL

    I worked at Linvatec full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They give a lot of time off between vacations, personal time, and holidays.

    Cons

    You do not feel appreciated by this company. My manager did not do anything to help me do my job and I was left feeling frustrated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management does not have a clue as to what is happening in this company. They need to listen to all employees no matter what pay grade.

    Company gives two weeks off the first year as well as six personal days. The company also has a pretty good 401K plan with match up to seven percent.

    Pros

    You can take a day off without a problem

    Cons

    The management there is not open to new ideas and don't listen to any advices. They can ask you to leave the company , just because you didn't say hello or goodbye or just because you looked somebody in a strange way. Instead of working they form different groups, share intrigues and gossips and if you are outsider then you will have to leave. They don’t feel like if you have more knowledge or fresh ideas, you will succeed , they feel like the emotions are the first and the main thing that will lead you to be successful within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Send your managers to some management courses because regardless of how good engineer they are, they still are far from being managers. Soon you will lose many quality employees if you continue with the same managers.

    Very old, stagnant management

    Pros

    Paid time off including vacation, personal & holiday are above average. Health benefits for a company this size are reasonable.

    Cons

    Very old, non-progressive management style. As was said before, stuck in a 20+ year ago mentality. No balance for work/home life, no individual respect. More "rules" with no flexibility than I have ever seen in my past 30+ working years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start looking at inovative ways to motivate & retain employees rather than using fear. Drop the whole "Coach" & "Area Owner" management style and start recognizing individual performance.
