    I worked at DePuy Synthes full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, gym, cafe is better than most

    Cons

    As someone mentioned below. Lots of bullies and I was bullied also. Employees do not get treated to their full potential. Management just concerned about numbers . So many back-stabbers here! Back stabbing, bullying and favoritism has caused emotional harm to employees. I have seen it. Credo is really a joke now.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to all people the same. Get out of your cliques.

    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 have been working at DePuy Synthes full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Many job opportunities in the Ireland plant for advancement. Ireland is a "dual sourced" plant. Johnson & Johnson owned company with a 20/20 vision.

    Cons

    Weak management. Not in the "Do it right" mindset. Always cuts corners. Has managers and engineers without degrees in place making risky decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting corners.

    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.

    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.
