    I worked at Wright Medical full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Laser focused strategy. Excellent Sales and Customer Service organizations. Great HQ environment and new manufacturing facilities in the US and internationally. Strong leadership. Innovative products.

    Cons

    Supply chain is still a challenge and not being led as well as it should be. Leader is a great strategist but is running an extremely complicated process and needs help and/or to step aside.

    Advice to Management

    Fix supply chain, keep up the innovation, and ensure customer experience remains stellar. Eliminate redundant executive roles. Put more power and $ behind international organization.

    Pros

    Amazing place to work. The corporate culture after merging with tornier is great. I see myself growing within the company and I'm excited about that.

    Cons

    No really anything bad to say about this company. Things could get done in a more timely manner but that's with any company. They have implemented many things that make my life much easier while on the job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you're doing guys!

    Never a dull day, and some really great people. The company is trying to improve itself and change some cultural issues. They are also reasonably supportive in the community!

    Lack of process, siloing, finger pointing, everything is a fire.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on changing.

    Pros

    Great Benefits. GREAT PAY!!! Employees get along well for the most part. The company as different events that shows that they appreciate its employees.Overall a great COMPANY to work for.

    Cons

    Although the company is great, the MANAGEMENT is horrible in the finance department. There are too many clicks. If you did not know the person at a different location prior to Wright Medical, good luck trying to move up in the company. There is absolutely no room to grow within the finance department. If one person in management does not like you, then everyone in management doesn't like you.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the details your employees bring to your attention. Be open-minded. You are going to continue losing valuable employees if you do not learn the true value of leadership. Anyone is replaceable but a strong work ethic is hard to find. Be careful how you treat people.

    Pros

    Base pay is generally higher than other companies in the area.

    Cons

    Base pay needs to be high to keep you at this cluster of a company.

    Advice to Management

    Higher some consultants to get you on par with every other medical device manufacturer in town.
