    I have been working at Zimmer Biomet full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have been working at Zimmer Biomet for over a decade and have seen the company go through good times and challenging times. The one thing that has always remained consistent is the opportunity for people to grow in their careers. I have had a successful career at Zimmer Biomet as the result of hard work and great opportunities. Some of those opportunities were presented to me, while I sought out others. Having support to grow your career is one of the best pros I have personally had a Zimmer Biomet.

    Cons

    Like every company out there, Zimmer Biomet has room for improvement. This company has grown a lot, recently, through a number of acquisitions. Any time you are bringing people together through acquisition, there are challenges. Zimmer Biomet need to make sure that the vision continues to be clearly communicated and that there are training and resources available for the new Team Members to come up to speed on processes.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to communicate your vision and remember that you lead by example.

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

    Pros

    Great local management and personnel. Staff was exceptionally hard working and dedicated particularly to unreasonable goals and expectations. Daily work life was waiting until late in the day and then mandating late evening work when we could not meet the goals.

    Cons

    Direct management was located out of Warsaw. They did not understand the need to document and provide process details to staff. Drive for meeting daily gouls and would not consider looking upstream to address issues.

    Advice to Management

    Reorganise to have the local Post Marketing team report into local site management as opposed to remote management.

    I have been working at Zimmer Biomet full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    In the orthopedic space, Zimmer Biomet offers some of the best products available to surgeons and hospital customers. The local leadership is outstanding and there is strong support from Corporate headquarters to ensure ZB continues to be a successful and enjoyable company to work for. For sales representatives, the commissions structure is more favorable compared to local competitors. ZB also makes a commitment to invest in the development of their employees and provides opportunities for personal and career growth at all levels in the organization.

    Cons

    There have been supply chain issues for almost a year throughout Zimmer Biomet. Theses issues have lead to significant logistical challenges.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to continue to look towards broader solutions to all the challenges that sales and operations face each day. Just because somethings have been done a certain way for years does not mean that those processes are the way things should be done going forward.

    I worked at Zimmer Biomet full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits. On site gym. On site food service. Quiet town.

    Cons

    Only about 25% of the employees work while the other 75% talk about how much there is. Lots of favoritism. Still very much a boys club. Little room for promotion as the politics and red tape are in abundance. Questionable ethics from leadership.

    You are just a number there. There is no home work life balance. Weekend work is demanded, including the holidays and even company picnic.

    Advice to Management

    Be compliant with regulations. Be honest with employees. Fix the culture.
