    Pros

    Treats employees with respect and dignity. Admirable values that put patient and customer needs ahead of all else. Great work environment and culture. Staff are well rewarded. Great facilities and working conditions that support work life balance

    Cons

    As with most big companies, not always as nimble as you would want it to be. Has experienced a lot of change at the snr leadership level that have inhibited fast decision making and execution

    Advice to Management

    Stabilize the senior leadership and provide some continuity. Increase the investment in R&D to drive innovation and compete more effectively

    Pros

    Extremely high level interaction with entire process of product presentation and implementation. Management let you run your business. Always fast pace and exciting. Helping a facility watching a physician have the tools needed to fix broken bone was a rewarding feeling.

    Cons

    Not always all the equipment you needed was available where and when you needed it. If two surgeries were going on at once in different hospitals and nobody was around to cover for you, than you had to deal with it.

    Because of the continually changing nature of the company, you will always be learning something new.

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

    Pros

    Some good people left- not many. Great cafe. Field wants a 20 word minimum- I could write about how it once was when leaders knew how to lead rather than bully, demean and disrespect you as a human being?

    Cons

    Cliques have got to go. Far too many people are put in management that have absolutely no clue wbat the area entails and how to treat people. Dishonest, narcissistic used car salesmen with no ethics whatsoever. Hypocrites. And those that get promotions from them have to worship them like the gods they think they are. Save yourself your dignity- if you have none, you'll be "successful" by robbing the company of a paycheck you don't deserve.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves, you're inept and only taking a over compensated paycheck. Stop looking to others to blame for your incompetence. Be grown-ups and take responsibility. Listen to people but be sure they're not like yourselves- telling you what you want to hear with their CYA philosophy. Leaders? Hardly. Chicken shts who fear for their own jobs.

    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.
