    I have been working at Integra LifeSciences full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Integra is a rapidly growing medical technology company that is still small enough to stay agile. Employees are able to test and engage themselves in a variety of initiatives around the company to ensure Integra remains an engaging place to work. One of the coolest things about it is that you can look back over the course of your tenure and see how you personally made a difference in the way the company grows!

    Cons

    Looking forward to an update in facilities when we move into a very modern office space.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to balance quarterly/annual targets with the vision for long term growth. The company has a lot of potential to continue growing. It was a great accomplishment to move from small cap to mid cap this year!

    I have been working at Integra LifeSciences full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    • Great work life-balance
    • Great vacation and holiday benefits: 18 vacation days and 12 holidays
    • Free Bagels on Fridays
    • Fast career ladder growth: I have seen people get promoted left and right since I've been here.
    • Great stability: many of the people I work with have remained here several years with this being their first company to work with out of college.
    • Company is growing at a fast pace.

    Cons

    • Some sites have a lack of accountability and can be challenging to work with .
    • With the fast growth of the company some of the systems have not been updated and that unfortunately contributes to ineffeciencies with job-related tasks.
    • Sites seem to have their own systems as opposed to following a standardized system.

    Advice to Management

    •Implement standardization across all sites.
    •Hold sites accountable.

    Pros

    There are no pros. Love how they posted fake reviews on here.

    Run!! DON'T WALK. Do let them con you in. Probably the worst culture there is. Actually there isn't' any culture whatsoever.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people like they are people.

    Pros

    Pay Vacation that is about it.

    Cons

    If they promise you something don't expect to get it unless it is in paper. They have a MASTER machinist that doesn't know much of anything when it comes to machining unless it's the single piece of equipment that they run when they choose. They front like they are about doing the right thing but, when many employees brought it to management about certain allogations no one did anything.

    Advice to Management

    Make changes at the top everything else is running great just a horrible work place environment from colleague to colleague. No family feel at all, very seperated. A lot of gossip makes it a hard place to work. Like working with elementary children.

    I have been working at Integra LifeSciences full-time

    Pros

    Integra is a growing company with a solid executive team. Though it has gotten bigger over the years, it still sometimes has the feel of a smaller company. For the most part, the employees are collaborative and will work hard to deliver the best result. Given the growth profile, there is opportunity to learn a lot and increase responsibility over time.

    Cons

    Because Integra is growing so quickly, it is not always possible to fill positions as quickly as they become available. Employees may be required to carry extra work or wear multiple hats at times. I have always viewed it as an opportunity to gain experience and advance, but others may view this as a negative.
