    I worked at Zimmer Biomet full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay is decent. There are plenty of coworkers that are smart and able. I can only speak for my position and department (Operations).

    Cons

    There is absolutely no work/life balance. The management does not know anything that is actually going on with operations and, when advised of a problem, they simply do not listen. Very poorly run department within their spine division. Absolutely no appreciation for their employees. The company runs like a high school full of gossip and rumours. I honestly felt like most of the employees were the people who graduated at the bottom of their class. Not a lot of talent.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure a greater work/life balance. Understand what is going on with the people you manage and how your department works.

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

    Pros

    Zimmer Biomet is a really great company to work for. There are plenty of opportunities to grow. I really like working with my team members. My boss is great.

    Cons

    Sometimes it is difficult to access formal training at Zimmer Biomet, so most of the training is hands on and on the job. There is a lack of communication from upper management at times.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to improve communications regarding big picture ideas and changes happening within the company. It is empowering to feel like you are in the loop.

    Excellent products - good local team. Size of company and reputation will get you in the door. Interesting and challenging work

    Merger hangover means there is still a bit of a transition happening - it's still legacy biomet or legacy zimmer that is talked about
