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

    Pros

    It is an interesting field if you have a background in the medical field.
    Good opportunity to make money in the long run

    Cons

    Starting off there the compensation say is very poor especially with the amount of hours worked. Poor organization and no work/life balance .

    Advice to Management

    More training services could be provided. There is a lot of pressure starting off in the job, but more training classes could better prepare employees to feel more confident

    I have been working at Zimmer Biomet full-time

    Pros

    Pay is average, 18 to 26? Dental is good

    Cons

    Its production and the supervisors dont know anything about the machines and people they supervise. Your constantly being watched on days and they yell scream and whine if your not doing what they think you should be doing. They force you to work weekends, and if not you get fired. 3rd shift starts on Monday so you dont ever get a weekend as you have to work all the time (goodbye family). Supervisors never work weekends with the Machinist. Machinist come and go like theres no tomorrow.

    Advice to Management

    The machinist are the backbone of this company, why break it?

    I worked at Zimmer Biomet as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great work life balance.
    The work is straight forward

    Cons

    They lie to you. So my contract was agreed to be for 12 months but 4 months in, they hired someone else who was cheaper and terminated my contract without any reason.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest to the new people you hire.

    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.
