    "Senior Associate"

    I have been working at Integra LifeSciences full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent PTO and benefits, good place to begin a career

    Cons

    Severely underpaid and overworked, the longer you stay, the more you are taken advantage of

    Advice to Management

    Please stop acquiring new companies and start paying your existing employees a fair salary. Colleagues who have been with Integra since being hired are paid less than those who joined due to an acquisition.

    Pros

    Business is growing by acquisitions.

    EH&S compliance does not have the same parity as Quality Assurance & Regulatory Affairs compliance. Time to move on!

    Advice to Management

    Consider treating EH&S Compliance similar to other regulatory compliance functions.

    Pros

    Integra has a great portfolio of products that opens many avenues to build the business. Strategic vision of the company is great; they know where they want to get to long-term and have made the right decisions to get there. As a growing company, there are many opportunities to advance; you can move up in this company if you have the drive and skills to succeed. Salary is competitive (at least in the area I work in, other areas it could be debated), and benefits are very good (that is true across the board).

    Cons

    Structurally, the talent development in this company is severely lacking. Your best bet is to come in (young and cheap) with a good amount of talent and work your way up through results, or you luck out with a manager that can develop you independently. Currently, you'll see many managers/leaders hired from the outside across the manufacturing sites and corporate office

    Advice to Management

    The two areas I see as weakness are: 1. R&D; part of this is due to company's long term plan; growth through acquisition vs. organic growth. I think new acquisition of Codman, and the talent and skills that come in from that move, will address it. However, the company has had trouble building/marketing/selling new products in house to grow organically. If you can't do that, eventually, you get bought out by a bigger fish (JJ, Stryker, Medtronic) 2. Human Resources: simply put, this department is not good at their job. They are bad and/or slow in identifying talent to bring in to interview for a new position, and when new hires come in, the manager is tasked with performing most of the onboarding tasks that HR would perform at every other company I've worked at.

    Pros

    Roles are not set in stone. Oppertunity for experience in other areas where you might not get at a larger more established company.

    Cons

    Complicated. No sense of loyalty to employees. Managers are not very knowledgeable in their field. Tons of back stabbing and favortism. Not open to new ideas unless it can grant your manager a promotion. Uptight.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to listen and implentment changes that not only get you promoted.
