    I worked at Zimmer Biomet full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good corporate benefits and perks. Quarterly bonuses. Lots of OT for hourly employees. Casual dress code. Management shows appreciation with gift cards/free company swag.

    Cons

    Post-merger there were/are a lot of growing pains for Zimmer Biomet. Management chose to relocate to a smaller warehouse to save money, which quickly became overcrowded and cramped due to increased inventory and staff.

    Extremely low employee morale. Employees are overworked and generally miserable. Operations can barely keep up with the growing sales with increasingly limited inventory. Constant Product recalls and back-orders.

    All Operations employees work incredibly hard every day. Everyone (except for management) must be "on-call" 24/7 for 1 full week on a rotating basis (every 4-6 weeks). Your 'on-call' week will be mentally and physically draining as you will be required to work your typical day, stay (very) late every night and also come in multiple times over the weekend.

    Pros

    Good benefits, good top out pay.

    Cons

    New pay is completely uncompetitive. New employee turn over rate is extremely high. No communication from management. Way to much mandatory overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the wages, communicate with employees.

    Pros

    Zimmer Biomet is a really great company to work for. There are plenty of opportunities to grow. I really like working with my team members. My boss is great.

    Cons

    Sometimes it is difficult to access formal training at Zimmer Biomet, so most of the training is hands on and on the job. There is a lack of communication from upper management at times.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to improve communications regarding big picture ideas and changes happening within the company. It is empowering to feel like you are in the loop.

    I worked at Zimmer Biomet full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay is decent. There are plenty of coworkers that are smart and able. I can only speak for my position and department (Operations).

    Cons

    There is absolutely no work/life balance. The management does not know anything that is actually going on with operations and, when advised of a problem, they simply do not listen. Very poorly run department within their spine division. Absolutely no appreciation for their employees. The company runs like a high school full of gossip and rumours. I honestly felt like most of the employees were the people who graduated at the bottom of their class. Not a lot of talent.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure a greater work/life balance. Understand what is going on with the people you manage and how your department works.

    Pros

    401k has a 6% match
    New renovations almost complete
    Onsite cafe
    Halloween party every year is cool

    Cons

    In short, STAY AWAY. Wasn't like this before Zimmer acquired us. 

    It is now hostile at best and toxic at its worst. I would highly recommend you avoid this place. The problems stem from the top. There is no direction in the company, far too many CAPAs and problems to fix. The problems are endless. Currently - morale is in the dumps and do not expect it to rise anytime soon. It's a "I'm paid to do this, put my blinders on and leave at 5pm" type of place.

    Upper Management is absent minded and some do not treat employees with respect. One particular person has been witnessed by many to harass and outright demean people. It is expected that you stay late or come in on weekends when senior management wants something done. There is ZERO upward mobility unless you know someone.

    I came from another major med dev organization – in comparison – Zimmer in Palm Beach is bush league.

    But hey - at least they have a newly completed remodel that makes the place look quite snazzy. 

    Advice to Management

    Honestly, learn one concept:

    A happy worker is a hard worker.
