    I worked at Zimmer Biomet full-time

    Pros

    Not many pros to working here now.

    Cons

    Not sure how Dental's PBG facility hasn't been shut down. Last I heard they stil had the DOJ sitting in the facility full time because of multiple ethics violations.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house and shut down PBG before FDA or the DOJ does.

    Pros

    use to be a great company when it was implant innovations and Biomet.........worst company ever since zimmer took over

    Cons

    if managers / supervisors do not like you ~ you will be out of a job one way or another. faulty computer system makes it impossible to follow FDA regulations. favoritism is alive and well and the favorites can take breaks for as long as the want others must be back on time or get written up. new management sucks!

    Advice to Management

    get your computer system fixed and stop blaming employees for your computer issues while being audited

    The old Zimmer was a great place to work but when they bought Biomet and moved all of Biomet management in it went down hill

    I have been working at Zimmer Biomet as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Literally nothing. If you aren't a manager's pet, don't expect to get anywhere with this company. I've seen several of my former colleagues get passed up for permanent positions. All were very hard workers, but management chose in favor of someone with absolutely no experience simply because that person was friends with someone who's uncle is a golf buddy with a manager.

    Cons

    I can't speak for the manufacturing side, but as far as the quality side goes, there is absolutely no communication. They don't worry about fixing issues until they are out of control, and most fixes are last minute bandaid fixes. Management has zero loyalty to anyone; permanent, or contract.

    Advice to Management

    Pull your heads out of the sand and wake up! Stop expecting everyone to bow to you while you stab us in the backs!

    Pros

    Great benefits and great co workers

    Cons

    Since the Zimmer buyout the company has gone straight down the toilet. Zimmer is all about the bottom line. Biomet 3i was a company that cared about its clinicians, the patient and manufacturing the best implants and components on the market. Zimmer has a complete different business model and only cares about the $$ and destroying everything Biomet 3i stood for.
