    I have been working at DePuy Synthes full-time

    Pros

    Great products, education support and surgeon training.

    Cons

    Contracts with hospitals reduce the CPU and this trend has been continuing the last 8 years or so. Hard to make more money.

    Advice to Management

    Have less people working in the field to allow for higher compensation for loyal representation.

    I have been working at DePuy Synthes full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits for time off.

    Cons

    Stressful long hours with seemingly high attrition rate. Base pay is not great.

    Advice to Management

    Unrealistic expectations may temporarily boost productivity but have long term impacts on staff morale. Need to fill open positions as to reduce the load.

    DePuy has a good name in the industry.

    I worked at DePuy Synthes full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I loved working with my coworkers, many of us had been with Synthes 10+ years. Salary and benefits were good. DePuy Synthes the first couple of years were good.

    Cons

    Synthes was purchased by J&J (a.k.a. DePuy) and after a few years reorganized and downsized a large % of employees, many who had been there 10+ years. Morale was bad as we continued to see coworkers being let go. Big corporations apparently don't value loyalty, just the bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    Of course reorganization is part of business, but eliminating jobs of the people who built the company in lieu of contract workers so you can save on benefits really doesn't align with the J&J credo... which they liked to refer to but doesn't really ring true.

    I worked at DePuy Synthes full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, you'll learn about the products that save people lives, overtime in other departments is great when you need extra money

    Cons

    Sometimes overtime on weekends is "mandatory", co workers will always think they know what's best, nothing about the company is bad just the people that work there
