    I worked at Zimmer Biomet (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The finance internship program at Zimmer is a great experience. It's not the typical intern experience where you are given busy work. You work on real projects that are challenging and have a real impact. You are also put on a team with other interns and given a problem to solve and then present your solution to the CFO. The people are are pretty great too.

    Cons

    My only con is the location. There is not that much to do in Warsaw.

    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

    Amazing manager and support team. Great base pay, benefits, etc. There are a lot of resources to be utilized and the training is rather comprehensive.

    Cons

    The company feels too big at times to get things done quickly. Oh, and the comp plan? That's a joke...

    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.

    Pros

    Great people to work with.
    Good benefits and time off accrual rate.

    There is a high turnover rate in management positions throughout the company. Often, bosses would be gone in a year or two (after they got some experience).

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Antiquated business systems, poor leadership from executive management, overly-silohed work environment, constant M&A activity without clear execution strategies, poor work culture, non-competitive salary and healthcare.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop acquiring companies only to gut the things which made that company successful and attempt to organically grow a business unit.

    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
