    Prestige associated with large company, detailed processes, 401(k) matching program was competitive.

    Pros

    Not many pros to working here now.

    Not sure how Dental's PBG facility hasn't been shut down. Last I heard they stil had the DOJ sitting in the facility full time because of multiple ethics violations.

    Clean house and shut down PBG before FDA or the DOJ does.

    Pros

    use to be a great company when it was implant innovations and Biomet.........worst company ever since zimmer took over

    Cons

    if managers / supervisors do not like you ~ you will be out of a job one way or another. faulty computer system makes it impossible to follow FDA regulations. favoritism is alive and well and the favorites can take breaks for as long as the want others must be back on time or get written up. new management sucks!

    Advice to Management

    get your computer system fixed and stop blaming employees for your computer issues while being audited
