    I worked at Integra LifeSciences full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This is a great starter company. You have the chance to be exposed to many different parts of the company and meet people across departments. Because it is so "lean" there are many opportunities for someone in a lower level role to get involved in different projects that you may not be included in at a larger company.
    The people there are generally nice and easy to work with.
    The schedule was flexible and you get a good amount of PTO to start with.
    Bagels on Friday were good, as long as you aren't the person ordering them.

    Overall, I enjoyed my time here and liked my team. I am still connected with the people I met and worked with. It was a good learning experience for me.

    Cons

    There is a lot of turnover, making it hard to keep projects on track and get the information needed in a timely manner.
    There are some departments that don't think they need to respond to emails or calls, even from clients and vendors. Or they will make you jump through hoops to get any answer. (Looking at you Accounts Payable.)
    Communication on products, acquisitions, new hires, etc. could be improved.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on training, retaining, and engaging employees. Re-vamp the company culture to be more inclusive and connected.
    Bagel Fridays are a great perk but at the end of the day you want people energized about what they do, not a freebie.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Integra LifeSciences.

    Interview

    I talked to five different people in the company, and they seemed more to want to know who I was as a person and asked less about my technical skills. It was more on the informal side and we had a conversation more than a formal interview.
