Approves of CEO

I have been working at Wright Medical full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

GREAT environment to work in
Flexible / understanding supervisors and managers

Cons

Uncertainty in direction of the company
Difficult to advance in some departments - managers have been employed here for decades

Advice to Management

Communicate honestly with employees on short and long-term plans. Without this communication, it's tough to stick around at a job when you're not sure of your company's future

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Wright Medical full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of young educated talent ready to make an impact. Infrastructure is on the right path but a work in progress. Great salary and benefits. Lots of work.

    Cons

    Like any company it depends on which department and people you work with. Overall, this company is like any other. There are a couple of departments that cannot seem to get it together and it has a lot to do with the individuals and not the company or department.

    Advice to Management

    If someone is not able to perform to the level expected of their position move them into a position that they can function in and hire someone that can perform at the expected level. It will curtail tension within the department and optimize work flow.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Wright Medical full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Has some great products esp on the foot and ankle side
    - Its an entry point into the medical device industry

    Cons

    - Weak product portfolio on the joint side
    - 100% commission sales jobs (can be +/- but with Wright chances are you start with a territory that has near ZERO volume)
    - Very poor company matching 401K
    - lack of development opportunities
