    Pros

    Benefits are good, including health insurance, vacation days, family days, on-site healthcare.

    Cons

    Only food dispenser meals available on-site; some managers should not be leaders; continues to be confusion between the former company's culture and the Johnson and Johnson 's approach. Most managers are "imports" from J&J, with a minimal opportunity from inside, even when well qualified.

    Don't discriminate against longer-term Synthes employees

    Pros

    While I worked at DePuy Synthes, there was excellent upper management. They were very motivational and supportive of our needs.

    Cons

    At times, DePuy Synthes had issues with targeting quotas for territories. Unfortunately, there are quite a few companies that are that way.

    Advice to Management

    The obvious advice to management is to listen to your workforce. It takes time and effort, but in the end it pays off and everyone reeps the benefits.
