    Great working environment and they do what they can to provide all the essential tools to keep employees healthy and happy.

    Make sure to not get involved or participate in any of the drama that tends to happen.

    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.

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

    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.

    Pros

    Amazing manager and support team. Great base pay, benefits, etc. There are a lot of resources to be utilized and the training is rather comprehensive.

    Cons

    The company feels too big at times to get things done quickly. Oh, and the comp plan? That's a joke...

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

    Pros

    The atmosphere is laid back. The salary was pretty decent. There are some pretty cool people to learn from. This role encouraged a pretty independent learning ability. Meeting rooms are quite nice.

    Cons

    At times, communication between team members was very lacking. Everyone seemed to be on a different page.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise to improve team communication. Although it can be a difficult task, it is always a rewarding experience to invest in great communication within a team.

    Company provides competitive salary, benefits, and bonuses. The culture is pretty good, and the people are very professional. Senior leadership has a good vision and working to improve the competitiveness of the company.

    Cons

    The industry is undergoing a lot of change and the customer challenges are significant. All this makes for a challenging atmosphere with customers.
