    Pros

    Large Orthopedic company
    Large product portfolio
    Research and Data evidence to support product
    Hard working reps
    Orthopedics is a fun business to be in, with a lot of rewarding days. Feeling of satisfaction when you are a part of tough revision surgeries and seeing good patient outcomes.

    Cons

    ZB is concerned with the bottom line and how lean they can run so that their stock looks good. Which is obviously something that any big publicly traded company needs to worry about. However what they forget is the lives of the people working for them and the doctors and patients who are effected by backorders and "voluntarily recalls". ZB doesn't listen to the field, and doesn't keep the best interest of their employees and distributors in mind.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to those people on the front line of your organization

    I have been working at Zimmer Biomet full-time

    Pros

    Get to help people, good pay if your legacy zimmer employee, good benifits

    Cons

    Not truly one company as they try to say, the pay between legacy zimmer and legacy Biomet team members doing the exact same job for same time is as much as 10 dollars an hour different even though u work side by side which is completely unfair and leads to very low morale.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all employees the same, people that do the same job and have the same amount of full time years should make the same money not 9 dollars an hour different and we're the ones training them. Find away to equal us out so we are truly one company as we were told when the merger happened, that would make people much happier and lead to more productivity, same job same amount of time should equal same pay

    I worked at Zimmer Biomet (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The finance internship program at Zimmer is a great experience. It's not the typical intern experience where you are given busy work. You work on real projects that are challenging and have a real impact. You are also put on a team with other interns and given a problem to solve and then present your solution to the CFO. The people are are pretty great too.

    Cons

    My only con is the location. There is not that much to do in Warsaw.

    Pros

    Zimmer Biomet employees have a great opportunity to grow within the organization. The team members are all hard working and have a patient first mentality. Very fair compensation and benefits packages. Overall a great company to work for.

    Cons

    Each division of Zimmer Biomet is different, the culture, opportunities and leadership. Knowledgeable and strong leadership is lacking in the dental division. During the merger promotions and opportunities were offered to several team members lacking leadership experience or put in roles with zero experience or education. Poor vision leads to chaos and unmotivated team members.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to Management. Utilize the strengths of your supporting team and listen in order to be successful, you don't have all the answers. Empower and trust leads to a strong team. Without a clear vision, communication and strong leadership you will have poor results.
