I have been working at Wright Medical full-time

Pros

Good benefits, competitive salary, stock purchase plan

Cons

The culture is strange and not very inclusive to new employees. You'll hear a lot about process improvement and innovation but the processes utilized are antiquated. Can you say paper purchase orders? It's not at all what I was lead to believe during the interview. Shame on me for not digging deeper.
Senior leadership seems to want innovation and progress, however there is a layer just below CEO and COO (including VPs and Directors) that are interested in maintaining their empires. new ideas are not encouraged. If you play the office politics and get in with the right people (the power brokers), you can do well. If not, well it's going to be a short stay.

Advice to Management

Plenty of advice is given during the semi annual employee survey. Apply some it.

    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

    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.
