    Pros

    I have no pros worth mentioning

    Cons

    Zimmer Spine lack diversity in management; no human resources department at facility; retaliation & discrimination behavior acceptable by directors & management

    Advice to Management

    Follow the Zimmer's core values, EEO policy, retaliation policy, alert 24/7 hot line by supporting and protecting the employees from hostile work environment, rather than protecting and supporting management.

    Pros

    Recognized name in industry. OEM allows more exposure to all facets of product development, commercialization, and sustaining products. Starting pay is consistent with market.

    Cons

    Few opportunities for growth. Management is unaware or not active in employee engagement. No commitment or plan to develop employees. Many unhappy but complacent.

    Pros

    Good pay. Interesting products. Claim that they want a high performance culture. However, management insists on forced ranking which encourages competition and undercutting each other.

    Cons

    People stretched doing work of 2-3 ppl due to policy of not replacing those who leave. Threat of layoffs due to the merger with Biomet. Constant hassle from project managers with unreasonable expectations for turnaround time given number of assignments. Upper management has not adjusted expectations of work output to the reduced size of workforce.

    Advice to Management

    You can't expect the same level of output from fewer employees if you want those who are left to be content. Wake up. Morale is low and good people are bailing.

    Pros

    This is a stable company, in a good growing industry. They do many things well. Quality products. Financially driven. Results oriented. Resources to get things done. Low cost of living in northern Indiana. The pending merger bodes well to shake things up.

    Cons

    A tendency for short-term vision to satisfy shareholder interests can translate to a loss in longer-term strategic action. Many layers of entrenched bureaucracy can be an impediment to new ideas and can suppress upward mobility.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to manage talent better. Consider 360 reviews. Because employees report only upwards to a direct manager means that peer-to-peer internal customer service is not systematically recognized or rewarded.

    Managers lie and talk behind your back. Health insurance is the worst I have ever had. No chance for advancement.
