    I have been working at Wright Medical Group full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    GREAT environment to work in
    Flexible / understanding supervisors and managers

    Cons

    Uncertainty in direction of the company
    Difficult to advance in some departments - managers have been employed here for decades

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate honestly with employees on short and long-term plans. Without this communication, it's tough to stick around at a job when you're not sure of your company's future

    I have been working at Wright Medical Group full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of young educated talent ready to make an impact. Infrastructure is on the right path but a work in progress. Great salary and benefits. Lots of work.

    Cons

    Like any company it depends on which department and people you work with. Overall, this company is like any other. There are a couple of departments that cannot seem to get it together and it has a lot to do with the individuals and not the company or department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If someone is not able to perform to the level expected of their position move them into a position that they can function in and hire someone that can perform at the expected level. It will curtail tension within the department and optimize work flow.

    Look at your dedicated workers, those that are there through it all.

    I have been working at Wright Medical Group

    Pros

    The best reasons to work at Wright Medical Technology are a fulfilling mission, great coworkers, a beautiful campus and spectacular benefits.

    Cons

    A few of the downsides of working at Wright Medical Group are a lack of career advancement and quite a few managers that are in positions for which they are not qualified or they aren't very good at, especially within the IT group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall the company is being run extremely well considering the DOJ ordeal and all of the high-level departures as of late. We can do a better job as a whole by doing a better job of putting the correct people in the appropriate positions. One such area that is really suffering is the IT group (especially the top few layers). Morale is terrible and there is no vision or leadership.

    I worked at Wright Medical Group

    Pros

    Wright Medical has great benefits and community involvement for the employees to get involve. The onsite nursing staff is great.

    Cons

    No opportunity for growth within some of the departments at Wright Medical Group. Promotions at Wright Medical need to be given across the board.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management at Wright Medical need to lead the company more and stay out of the news. The focus should be on the company.

    Pros

    Great support from managers. Interesting projects. Ability to be project leader on my projects. Bonuses are given every quarter as long as our sales are good.

    Cons

    I do not have many cons to mention about Wright Medical. The company had a few hard years, but so did every other ortho company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to support your employees. The new bonus system seems to be working and movitating employees to meet their goals.
