    I have been working at Zimmer Biomet full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have been working at Zimmer Biomet for over a decade and have seen the company go through good times and challenging times. The one thing that has always remained consistent is the opportunity for people to grow in their careers. I have had a successful career at Zimmer Biomet as the result of hard work and great opportunities. Some of those opportunities were presented to me, while I sought out others. Having support to grow your career is one of the best pros I have personally had a Zimmer Biomet.

    Cons

    Like every company out there, Zimmer Biomet has room for improvement. This company has grown a lot, recently, through a number of acquisitions. Any time you are bringing people together through acquisition, there are challenges. Zimmer Biomet need to make sure that the vision continues to be clearly communicated and that there are training and resources available for the new Team Members to come up to speed on processes.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to communicate your vision and remember that you lead by example.

    I have been working at Zimmer Biomet full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    In the orthopedic space, Zimmer Biomet offers some of the best products available to surgeons and hospital customers. The local leadership is outstanding and there is strong support from Corporate headquarters to ensure ZB continues to be a successful and enjoyable company to work for. For sales representatives, the commissions structure is more favorable compared to local competitors. ZB also makes a commitment to invest in the development of their employees and provides opportunities for personal and career growth at all levels in the organization.

    Cons

    There have been supply chain issues for almost a year throughout Zimmer Biomet. Theses issues have lead to significant logistical challenges.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to continue to look towards broader solutions to all the challenges that sales and operations face each day. Just because somethings have been done a certain way for years does not mean that those processes are the way things should be done going forward.

    I have been working at Zimmer Biomet full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Zimmer Biomet have given thousands of people opportunities to grow in their craft and support the company's goals. Our people are the breath of our being and we appreciate all the hard work to make our company successful. We provide a positive impact to lives all over the world.

    Cons

    I do not write reviews of any company nor should I have to. I was a bit disturbed after an evaluation of an earlier post because it was stated Zimmer Biomet is not supporting our supply base. To have the contributions of our company create a detrimental effect of a suppliers employees is not what Zimmer Biomet represents. With all the power within my means I will have this incident completely investigated. I will visit the supplier myself, if need be, to find out what happened and what, if any, we did to contribute to an employee being separated from their company. It is with great regret that we could have any effect of an employee, and those that support us. Rest assured we will get to the bottom of this incident. This is not the reputation we want to demonstrate to current or future employees that read social media such as this.

    Advice to Management

    No guidance is needed. I will make sure that this will not reoccur and that if anyone has backed this to create such a misfortune and impact the life of our supplier base employees, it will be dealt with.

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

    Pros

    Great company atmosphere with many opportunities to go out and get hands-on experience. One of the intern managers arranged for a few of us to visit a surgeon in the operating room, which was awesome to watch. I was given the opportunity to make a difference in the group and was not restricted to "intern work."

    Cons

    Warsaw is not my favorite town , I chose not to live there as it is incredibly tiny and not ideal for someone in their 20's. I choose to live in Fort Wayne and commute 45 to and from every day.

    Advice to Management

    Trim down the online training modules- many of the ones that I was required to complete had no relevance to the job I did this summer.
