Doesn't Recommend

Pros

Good benefits, decent colleagues, fair about time off, good work-life balance. Overtime rarely expected. Tuition reimbursement is nice and it's a friendly, moderately paced place.

Cons

Typical mind-numbing cube farm, little recognition and because corporate is so stingy with promotions, people get bored (and insulted) before anything is done about it.

Advice to Management

Utilize people's talents before they bail. And own up to your mistakes instead of pointing fingers.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Medical device company with strong margins and cash flow. Neat working for a company that makes products that help others.

    Cons

    Major products are in maturing markets and smaller divisions lack a strong product pipeline and stable leadership. After the DPA, Zimmer has not been the same.

    Advice to Management

    Work on establishing consistent leadership that is willing to make the hard choices about future product portfolio and sticking with choices.

    "Good place to get your foot in the door for medical device industry, but not a place to stay long term."

    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.
