Pros

It's a job. You can wear shorts to work. Only 2 reasons that I can think of.

Cons

Very political company. Good ole boys club - females are paid considerably less than males. Stock options are given to some, but not all in similiar positions. Biomet has alot of very arrogant people that work there. It's like there is a club and you are in it or not in it. Upper management runs the company like a ma & pa sweat shop with very little interaction, direction, or feedback. For the companies I have worked for since graduating from college, I truely have to say Biomet is lacking good management, low benefits, little respect for people, integrity and a genuine caring attitude. I have never been associated with a company that is so lacking of consistency in rules and regulations from one employee to the next. It is ok for some to do things a certain way...but others not in the club it is not ok. It is very tough to work in an environment where the rules aren't consistent for everyone. There is also an attitude within Biomet that knowledge is power.....so if you have the information no one will share it with you. There is a constant fear and intimidation factor that plays into some employees within the company where they do not want others to be successful out of fear of loosing their own position. It is a very tough environment to be in. If you are up for the challenge then go for it...but my personal advice is stay as far away from this company as possible.

Advice to Management

Show an attitude of appreciation and care that is genuine to your employees. Talk the talk and walk the walk. Mnay employees in the Management, Director, Vice President level need to change. There are truely many individuals that are over their heads in positions they have no idea what they are doing. Someone needs to come into this company and sweep house and move in leaders that lead with Integrity and Respect. Their is an arrogance of protection among those who have never signed non-competes that their jobs are protected. There is also an arrogance among many employees of constant dis-respect in the work place. There is never a place for this in any business environment. To make the record strait I am not referring to Mr. Binder in any of these comments I have made.

    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.

    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.
