    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.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The people are very friendly with a stereotypical Midwestern warmth. The culture is very collobarative and people work together to solve problems. Morale is generally high. The compensation and benefits are good for this part of the country.

    Cons

    There are very high expectations of employees at Zimmer and some people fail to live up to them. The rural location is not for everyone and the town is conservative.

    Advice to Management

    None, I think they are doing a good job. People are treated with respect.

    Pros

    I enjoyed the location of Biomet, the Co-Workers within the building, and the pay I received was comparable. It was a nice place to work in general. My direct supervisor was very understanding with various personal issues I had that may/may not have intruded upon my work. I appreciated that.

    Cons

    Hours were long sometimes, early in the morning, sometimes I was working at 2a at a hospital for a salesman who was making all the money with the commissions. Upon that, higher management was a little arrogant sometimes, but other than that- not too much. As I have said, it was a nice place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Listen a bit more to ideas

    Pros

    Incredibly relaxed, fun and open work atmosphere. Great job hiring new employees and great opportunities for lateral and vertical movement within the company.

    Cons

    Not quite as big as their major competitors, Zimmer, Depuy, Stryker and Smith & Nephew, however a much more innovative and socially responsible firm.

    Advice to Management

    More feedback to employees on a regular basis. More on campus amenities such as a better cafeteria or a fitness room.

    Pros

    They were very family oriented. They loved providing for their employees and their families. We had a company picinic that included each employees family to join in the festivity for every year. The best company I have ever worked for.

    Cons

    The only downside was that they moved my position to Warsaw, Indiana; therefore, I was laid off. I would have rather stayed in my position doing what I loved.

    Advice to Management

    Biomet Microfixation is a wonderful Company to work for. I really miss working for Biomet Microfixation. They had the greatest team and management.

    I have been working at Zimmer Biomet full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My experience at Zimmer Dental has been exceptional. From the President down through management they are professional, knowledgeable, caring people to be associated with. My co-workers are diverse in age, ethnicity, culture, gender, and religious beliefs and everyone I work with is respectful and respected. This is not my first job in the medical manufacturing industry but it is my last. I am lucky to be employed by Zimmer Dental and management makes me feel appreciated. I was hired at Zimmer Dental after a layoff from another company and now I love to say "that layoff was the luckiest day of my professional life."

    Thank you for this opportunity to be a positive voice for Zimmer Dental.

    Cons

    For me, professionally and personally, there are no "cons." Not at this time and I have been there 3 years.

    Advice to Management

    Live and work the motto "DO THE RIGHT THING" and Zimmer Dental will grow and prosper.
