    I worked at Zimmer Biomet full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are both very competitive and Opportunity for growth is strong. Get good exposure to sharpen your PowerPoint skills.

    Cons

    Culture and work life balance values leave much to be desired. The rapid pace of acquisitions and large number of initiatives means success based on noise level rather than goal alignment and lots of fire fighting.

    Advice to Management

    Need to right-size systems/processes for all those acquisitions to integrate and get the results that are expected.

    Pros

    Team oriented atmosphere, relaxed and collaborative environment. Challenging and very fast-paced.

    Cons

    Since merger announcement, information is more closely guarded and atmosphere is already changing. Unfocused decision making and unrealistic expectations of what can be accomplished in a short time period.

    Advice to Management

    Stop acting like nothing will change and be more realistic in you expectations. Your employees are not as naive as you seem to think!

    Significant dedication and focus on improving the culture.
    This company will be much stronger in a year.

    Continue the culture change initiatives
    Eliminate forced rankings
    Reward all team members for great work
    Treat people with respect

    Pros

    Good people with opportunities for advancement. Good industry. I learned a lot about the industry and was given a fair amount of responsibility early on in my career. The organization is large and presents opportunities to move around but it can be difficult to make some transitions. You need to request changes to make sure they really happen.

    Cons

    Can be a little political and a little difficult to advance if you don't have the right relationships. It can also take a lot time for people to make a decision and to drive change through the company. Head quarters are in the middle of no where.

    Advice to Management

    doing ok
