    Pros

    I like the support I get from my staff team and functional support teams. My peers are knowledgeable and easy to work with. The operating teams are open and receptive to change. A tremendous amount of experience and skill makes the amount of technology we use appear simple to apply to our processes. The company is investing in technology everywhere.

    Cons

    Some teams are ahead of others related to continuous improvement. The teams are all aligned to the same goals and metrics yet somewhat autonomous in the way they are managed to achieve goals.

    Advice to Management

    Share a single vision of what the future of our business will be. Where are we going and how are we going to get there?

    Pros

    The people are very friendly with a stereotypical Midwestern warmth. The culture is very collobarative and people work together to solve problems. Morale is generally high. The compensation and benefits are good for this part of the country.

    Cons

    There are very high expectations of employees at Zimmer and some people fail to live up to them. The rural location is not for everyone and the town is conservative.

    Advice to Management

    None, I think they are doing a good job. People are treated with respect.

    Pros

    My experience at Zimmer Dental has been exceptional. From the President down through management they are professional, knowledgeable, caring people to be associated with. My co-workers are diverse in age, ethnicity, culture, gender, and religious beliefs and everyone I work with is respectful and respected. This is not my first job in the medical manufacturing industry but it is my last. I am lucky to be employed by Zimmer Dental and management makes me feel appreciated. I was hired at Zimmer Dental after a layoff from another company and now I love to say "that layoff was the luckiest day of my professional life." Thank you for this opportunity to be a positive voice for Zimmer Dental.

    Cons

    For me, professionally and personally, there are no "cons." Not at this time and I have been there 3 years.

    Advice to Management

    Live and work the motto "DO THE RIGHT THING" and Zimmer Dental will grow and prosper.

    Pros

    Great environment. Zimmer cares about their employees. Flexible for families. Great small town with big town amenities. Great bad weather policy (my first two days were snow days). Diverse job opportunities. If you are looking for a change in your job you can switch jobs and stay at the same company without moving.

    Cons

    If you want to live in a metro you will commute. There is a great gym but it could always be expanded.

    Advice to Management

    Keep caring about employees. They are the biggest asset to the company. The incentives for being healthy are good but I think that the emphasis should be expanded to having healthy options at catered meetings.
