    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Pros

    working here will give a foot in the door for the med device industry, that's it.

    Cons

    Don't ever relocate with them. I'm currently in a legal battle over a housing stipend that they are trying to claw back despite having been there for 15 months even though the repayment schedule ends at 12 months after the move. I now find it hilarious that one of their tenets is "do the right thing", especially when they try to sue their former employees. Also a very cheap company who pays well below average for an FDA regulated industry.

    Advice to Management

    Stop spending dollars to save a dime.

    Pros

    Large Orthopedic company
    Large product portfolio
    Research and Data evidence to support product
    Hard working reps
    Orthopedics is a fun business to be in, with a lot of rewarding days. Feeling of satisfaction when you are a part of tough revision surgeries and seeing good patient outcomes.

    Cons

    ZB is concerned with the bottom line and how lean they can run so that their stock looks good. Which is obviously something that any big publicly traded company needs to worry about. However what they forget is the lives of the people working for them and the doctors and patients who are effected by backorders and "voluntarily recalls". ZB doesn't listen to the field, and doesn't keep the best interest of their employees and distributors in mind.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to those people on the front line of your organization

    I have been working at Zimmer Biomet full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay was pretty decent

    Cons

    Lack of management, management didn't even know products or market we were selling in. They give you a "trainer" but all you do is follow him around for a few days and learn nothing. Product suck! Competitors are 50% cheaper and exactly the same products! Doctors do not care about anything else other than price, especially in today's world.

    Advice to Management

    Change up your strategy, learn how to talk to employees, learn the products so you can actually answer questions when they arise.
