    I worked at Smith & Nephew as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is ALWAYS enough work for everyone

    Cons

    They will micromanage you 7 days a week for a month, then give you a Sunday off like it's a favor, and then the clock starts over on Monday.

    In the Memphis manufacturing and administrative areas: The most under qualified, self indulgent, self important "leaders" I have ever seen in one place.

    Advice to Management

    You can improve the quality of product AND output by beginning to care about your workers. End the abusive environment, even if a little at the time, and watch your workforce blossom. You MUST send your supervisors to ethics and people skills training OUTSIDE the company (and have some accountability) if you are ever to truly improve working conditions.


  2. "Company currently lacks focus/direction and has been better in the past"
