    Pros

    My boss is awesome, I love his management style. Salary is good. Two weeks paid vacation starting. Management understands the need for work/life balance.

    Cons

    Very limited room for growth in my current position. Annual bonus was dependent on other people hitting performance goals, and those people didn't hit those goals.

    Advice to Management

    Bonus should be dependent on individual performance only.

  2. good place to work

    Pros

    Good products. Good benefits. Ran out of pros. People from all levels are considering leaving. Asr's aren't paid enough.

    Cons

    Company isn't profitable. Depending on reps to pull them out of the hole. Despite awesome growth no one is happy. Reps will be jumping ship soon.

    Advice to Management

    Realistic expectations. Go back home.

    It has awesome benefits, compensation, and is easy work.

    Understaffed severely and doesn't seem like they plan on changing that anytime soon.

    Add more employees so you aren't so understaffed.

    Pros

    Pay is sort of competitive within the industry. The new facility at Cherry Road is nice.

    Cons

    Upper management decided to transform the culture - they have succeeded. Wright Medical is now a horrible place to work. It is difficult to describe, imagine a building full of people that hate their job and have no idea what executive management will do next.

    Advice to Management

    Just leave.

    I worked at Wright Medical Group

    Pros

    Salary and bonus were decent. Benefits were very good. Mast people were nice to work with.

    Cons

    Terrible morale. Executive management doesn't care about employees. CEO is disingenuous at best, and a flat out liar at worst. No recognition for a job well done for 99.9% of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your people. You have some good ones who deserve to be heard & rewarded.

    Pros

    Good benefits, competitive salary, stock purchase plan

    Cons

    The culture is strange and not very inclusive to new employees. You'll hear a lot about process improvement and innovation but the processes utilized are antiquated. Can you say paper purchase orders? It's not at all what I was lead to believe during the interview. Shame on me for not digging deeper.
    Senior leadership seems to want innovation and progress, however there is a layer just below CEO and COO (including VPs and Directors) that are interested in maintaining their empires. new ideas are not encouraged. If you play the office politics and get in with the right people (the power brokers), you can do well. If not, well it's going to be a short stay.

    Advice to Management

    Plenty of advice is given during the semi annual employee survey. Apply some it.
