    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

    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.

    Pros

    Everyone gets Flexible hours, Good work life balance, friendly colleagues and management. It is a big company especially after acquiring Biomet.

    Cons

    Deadlines are sometimes given more importance than quality of work- not always though.
    Not a great location to live at in Warsaw.

    I have been working at Zimmer Biomet full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Standout performers are recognized and rewarded.
    Most of management is open to bottom up suggestion, values work-life balance, and trying to do the right thing.

    Cons

    The reward is often more work. This leads to employee burnout, and loss of our best employees. There can be a lot of tedious unnecessary work due to poor information systems.

    Advice to Management

    We are walking a fine line with our recent acquisition. There is disagreement at L2 on how to handle it, so those below are given conflicting direction and expected to make the call. This is upside down. L1 needs to stop hiding from accountability, make a call, and ensure everyone falls in line behind him. Do your job!
