    Benefits are unmatched, 401k and medical is superb, even in the current environment.

    I have been working at Smith & Nephew full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits in regards to health insurance, dental, vision, and 401K. The young professionals group is great. The culture for the most part is good.

    Cons

    Higher ups make it very difficult to work on projects because they make you jump through hoops to get a project approved but even if it is approved a lot of the times they are not appropriately staffed. They have been hammering on us for years to cut spending and costs then when we finally under spend they president of R&D (2017-1018) yells at everyone.

    Need moer team building outings or holiday celebrations. this can be done for low cost but is not allowed for lower levels. The executives get to spoil themselves and their direct reports though.

    Advice to Management

    Stat being fair with how money is spent. If the lower levels are not allowed to spend money on travel or celebrations then the upper management should follow the same guidelines.
