    I worked at CONMED Corporation as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great company to work for in Tampa Bay. Different type of medical devices to work on. I worked with a great team.

    Cons

    They are really downsizing now. Notices were going out left and right about people leaving then the day I was layed off there were also many others layed off too for a total lay off of 70 people in one day right before the holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Bob Coleman was the best manager I have ever worked for. I was lucky to have worked with him for so long.

    I worked at CONMED Corporation (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people, great area to raise family and result oriented atmosphere. CEO did an excellent job articulating his vision, however brought in completely new senior team in all areas.

    Cons

    Many changes in last 3 years, some positive and likewise some negative. Typically change is good but has been exponential over last 2 years

    Advice to Management

    Value employees, provide recognition, while change is necessary many have sacrificed work balance to make company successful and to meet new objectives. Keep communicating the results and plan!

    Pros

    Great people and great products. A company in growth mode with hopefully most of their employee changes behind them.

    Cons

    Not a large marketshare vendor, so can be very difficult to sell their products whether on a GPO contract or not.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down on so many employee changes. Need time to see if the few changes are going to work. Your company is in growth mode, and you need some people that know the products to hang around and teach the new folks. It takes years to build relationships with customers

    Pros

    Really easy workplace with a friendly atmosphere

    Cons

    I feel as if I got lucky to have someone to help me with the in's and out's of my job. There wasn't real proper training, instead, it was more like a pep talk and here's what you need to do, so do it mentality. I appreciated everything, but I also felt like I was being watched by other higher up's that weren't accountable for my position.

    entire new infrastructure from top down. future is bright and its a great place to be at with great leadership

    Cons

    not yet the largest company compared to competition and so still need to play little brother at times out in the field...but the bag of products is growing

    Advice to Management

    new leadership seems to have the right focuses...stay focused and keep providing best in class products

    Pros

    The company culture is very welcoming and relaxed. The company is very multicultural, every race and religion is welcome at ConMed. Floating holidays are a big plus. Great work/life balance, very rarely expected to work late or on weekends. Overall easy-going atmosphere.

    Cons

    The salary is lower than industry averages. Management salaries, however, can be higher leading to a top-heavy organization. Management style is stuck in the '90's and can be very bureaucratic.

    I worked at CONMED Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I got to do an industrial/ergonomic redesign of the Altrus Gen 1.X handpiece. I set up the top-down assembly structure, and designed all the plastic pieces and the lever, i.e. everything a user touches. I'm proud of it, I think all of us on the team did a great job, and I am waiting for the Design Patent to get issued.

    Cons

    ....I just got downsized recently....

    Advice to Management

    Hire me back when you get new projects to work on........

    I worked at CONMED Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I learned a lot about the medical device industry.

    Cons

    New CEO, added pressure to meet quarterly financial goals. Unfortunately, since the company is not doing well, cost reduction measures are in place and people are losing their jobs.
    No advancement if not part of the "Club". Positions are given to employees without qualifications.

    Advice to Management

    To HR, question managers about the people selected to be promoted and laid off.
