No opinion of CEO

Pros

- Good opportunity to break into the industry
- Good place to develop basic job knowledge for your next big career move... it's a good building block for the next step.

Cons

- Cynical management
- Limited opportunities for advancement if you're not in Marketing or Engineering
- Very uncompetitive pay, well below the industry standards
- Virtually no company culture
- No communication between departments
- Inconsistent policies with their hourly vs. salary team members (i.e. a point system that penalizes hourly people for being literally 5 minutes late to work, yet absolutely no attendance standard for salaried team members. Or a disability policy that covers practically nothing for an hourly team member, but 100% for salaried)

Advice to Management

Focus on developing the people within the organization in order to prevent people from leaving. A lot of good people leave the company because they don't see any opportunity for growth. There are no development plans for regular team members, the focus of the company is primarily for succession of management.

The policies need to be less punitive for hourly team members, and more balanced with the entire company in mind. The existing policies tend to be primarily negative for hourly team members, with little to no effect on salaried team members. Regardless of pay grade or employment status, we should all be held to the same standards.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Zimmer has many talented, engaged people who are hard-working and friendly inside and outside the office. The salary and 401k package is very good.

    Cons

    The new leadership team has really dropped the ball and it is reflected in the company's financial results. Zimmer is no longer the leader in this industry and needs new leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on new products, sales, growth opportunities. Listen to everyday employees. Monitor work-life balance and burnout more closely amongst all employees.
