    Pros

    CEO, Culture, Professional Environment, and the people. Overall we make products that improve the quality of life for people. There is not better satisfaction knowing that you work for a company that can make such a big difference in how people live. It's something you get behind and feel proud.

    Cons

    Don't really have anything negative to say at this time.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to give. If I had a wish list, maybe be able to wear jeans every day. Most company cultures in Ft. Worth are more laid back.

    Cons

    The office coffee could be better...I know it's a small thing, but for many it is the lifeblood of Going the Extra Mile. Hardware & presentation tech is slightly outdated, but this is common for large companies, as updating projectors and computers on a large scale is very costly. I've heard some say that benefits are expensive, but my experience is they're quite affordable relative to other places I've been - so...

    Advice to Management

    As with many companies after a CEO leaves, there has been high turnover recently, which is especially stressful for those who like consistency & stability. Some have expressed feeling there hasn't been enough communication as to what the company's long-term vision is - and I very fleetingly get this feeling sometimes too. On the whole, I see our changes as a potential strength in the long-run, as we continue to improve...

    I have been working at Smith & Nephew full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Salaries are good. Good people to work with.

    Cons

    Moving jobs to Costa Rica. Layoffs and miserable, over worked employees. Do more with less then send the jobs out of the country. “Great Place to Work” company slogan is the butt of employee jokes. Moral is at an all time low and there are too many new projects, softwares, systems and initiatives all being implemented at the same time as jobs are being sent out of the country to Costa Rica and India. Chaos.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t try to do so many things at the same time. It’s going to take a long time to clean up this mess

    I worked at Smith & Nephew full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    The work-life balance at SNN is very good. They have a gym onsite. Many people going biking during their lunch hour. The work environment is not cut throat like other places I've been.

    Cons

    Too much red tape. Everyone's job is so narrowly focused they can't see the forest for the trees. You'll never get anything done there. If you are competitive and driven, you'll get frustrated here easily.
