    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 10 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers
    On par pay and benefits

    Cons

    Directors are just cashing a paycheck. There is a disconnect between the upper management messages and what the directors say and implement. There is little to no room for advancement.
    Very inefficient organization that cannot react to the market. Lost touch with the customer

    Advice to Management

    Go back to your roots and take care of the customer. Stop creating silos in the organization that do nothing but swell the ranks of middle management.

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

    Pros

    DePuy Synthes (a J&J company) is a top medical manufacturing company. Pay and Benefits are very good - inline with large corporations. Many employees had worked for Synthes and had been there for many years and had helped to build the company.

    Cons

    Company Reorganization - J&J let many good full time employees go and replaced with contractors. Most likely these contractors will never be officially hired and won't receive benefits, bonuses, etc. Difficult to advance if you are not a permanent, full time employee.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees the way you would want to be treated. Using contractors to save money on benefits may be smart business practice but doesn't seem like a fair deal for the contracted employee. Show some compassion.

    Cons

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