    Pros

    Free Bagel Friday.
    Ample Parking with plenty of spots.

    Cons

    Have a good team but culture varies across teams/departments and sometimes people are not treated with respect when mistakes are made
    Management has to stop pointing fingers and also do some of the work. Their direct reports cannot handle all the work if they are not fairly distributed.
    Recognition is only possible if you are part of upper management and they are too 'busy' to do that.
    Small mistakes are widely recognized whereas accomplishments are ignored.
    Upper Management attend to many meetings where no actions are defined. They sit in meetings all day doing absolutely no actual work.
    Forget about getting approvals for documents/projects. The managers are too busy in 'meetings' whole day to care about that.
    No room to grow if you are an entry level. There are no defined paths to tiers. Change of titles is rare.
    Upper Management do not care about their team career growth, only their own.

    Advice to Management

    Stop wasting your time in meetings where no decisions are made. Go do some work instead of passing all the work to other people who are already loaded with multiple projects.

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

    Pros

    Good Pay, clean facility, steady workflow, decent management. It's a manufacturing facility like many others I've worked at. This place does not deserve the bashing it gets on this site.

    Cons

    Cry babies, all the production people whine and cry that they're treated badly and think they are worth more than they are, people should just shut up and do their jobs!

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the constant complainers, they are hurting you not helping you, the machinist who think they are the best need their hands held for them daily anyway. They'd be nothing without the programmer to make them look good.

    Pros

    I guess what every ither employee states. Sad but true....Free coffee and free bagels on Fridays. Sad for a Pro....but its the truth

    Cons

    The HR department is highly corrosive....contributing to the already weakened departmental structure, lazy management and overall horrid culture. WATCH OUT for the fake reviews HR posts on here. They stick out like mold.

    Advice to Management

    Sell to a. company that rewards its employees,
    places ethics in place and pursues a team culture. The culture there is ruined and greedy upper management and HR simply dont care.
    Everything there is a secret. Trash culture.

    Pros

    Free bagels on Fridays. Nice laptops. Nice lobby.

    Cons

    If you're a decent person then run for your life and stay away from this place! People there don't have a basic manners, not to mention respect for other human being. Young employees will put you down and make you feel like you're nothing. The culture is toxic and very stressful.

    Pros

    Work is always satisfying and a lot of great people to work with.

    Cons

    Executive leadership looking to move fast. Sometimes feels like too fast and can be concerning for lower management and employees.

    Keep up the great work building culture and growing the business.

    Pros

    I liked most of the people I worked with. The work was really easy. Micromanaging is nonexistent.

    Cons

    This was the most unprofessional place I've worked. It did improve a lot while I was there, though.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the nepotism. Also, don't get your advice from Glassdoor.com.

    lower than industry average on pay, somewhat high turnover

    Continue engaging employees, putting patients first, and building out internal talent
