Pros

Safe facilities
Solid Pay and Benefits
Good Talent

Cons

If you could not run for congress you won't succeed at Zimmer, play the politics game, eat at the right lunch table and your golden. If you don't you are in a world of misery. You can transform and entire department and find yourself on the outside looking in if you have not greased the right people.

Advice to Management

Break the political structure, it is killing the company. Value documented performance not who you like because they make you feel better.

    Pros

    The people. Working in medical devices is honorable and interesting. Zimmer is a large Fortune 500 company with offices all over the world. There are excellent chances to get "global experience" there.

    Cons

    The projects that I worked on went at a suicide pace with major risk. As a result, global systems became unstable.

    Advice to Management

    "Measure twice and cut once". Let your employees work on the actual projects rather than spending days on fancy power-point presentations.

    Pros

    Good Pay. Benefits ok. Co-workers were nice. Walking path nearby and on-site workout facility. Great cafeteria with good variety of food.

    Cons

    Hourly office workers held to different standards than salary. No flexibility towards employees needing to change work hours in order to further education. Employees felt as if they were walking on egg shells around managers. Rigid dress code for employees never in contact with customers. No balance between work/life for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to treat the people working for you. People are not disposable. You can get superior work done and treat people well at the same time.
