I have been working at Zimmer Biomet full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

- Employees are committed to doing their best every day and generally feel a connectedness to the patients that are affected by their products
- Legacy products and technologies are a good platform for future products
- Great community for families

Cons

Management direction and vision is not consistent throughtout the company
Relatively high turnover in salaried staff
Poor backfill rate for employee turnover for "budget reasons"

Advice to Management

Welch-ian layoffs with no opportunity for performance improvement and no rehiring is will not improve employee engagement. Management needs to do a better job of communication vision.

    I have been working at Zimmer Biomet as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fantastic people to work with, dedication, professionalism. Management cares and is involved but not overbearing.

    Previous reviews allude to poor outlook. I disagree. While the product line at Zimmer Dental is aging, their TM "Trabecular Metal" seems to offer a great advantage to their products. Dental implants may suffer more in economic downturns due to their perception as luxury goods.

    It's obvious that the company has a long view. Apparently they have been acquiring advantageous technologies and partners. Clearly investing in the future.

    Cons

    Rumors of dead weight employees that I personally never interacted with.

    Because Zimmer is a great place to work, there are long tenures. Entry level roles are filled by highly qualified candidates who hope to move into management years later. Some functional groups worse than others.

    Limited vacation time for new hires after a recent policy change.

    Advice to Management

    Consider changing time-off policies.

    Pros

    It's a job. In the fascinating work of dental implants it's one of the bigger companies.

    Cons

    No regard for employee morale. They talk and talk about employee engagement, but it's just that... all talk. Carpet and desks are disgusting and falling apart. No raises or promotions. Hardly ever promote from within. Constant cost cutting. HR cannot answer simple questions about benefits. They do not value people and do nothing to retain them. Poor pay for level of work.

    Advice to Management

    Start investing in your employees and give them a reason to stay and feel proud. IM Zimmer will only get you so far, then they are just funny words.
