Very good facility with cafeteria, and fitness center
Chemistry Lab Technician Grade A (Current Employee), Parsippany, NJ – January 3, 2014
Pros: free lunches, reward cards, bonous, parties, picnics., and shares.
Cons: little opportunity to grow as a professional.
I have had a great deal of laboratory experience in chemistry in the lab, I have performed chemical reactions and I am currently using ICP-OES, and Gas Analyzer to calculate the minimum concentration of metals and gases in Trabecular Metal ™ samples. In environmental field studies, I have conducted outdoor labs to assess water chemistry. I have very little supervision, because I am able to manage any situation in the lab. My colleagues are very professional workers, I have not had any inconvenient when I direct them. The hardest part of my job is the fact of dealing with many internal costumers (engineers, technicians, and internship students) who are not concern about the nature of my job, and require jobs to be done in the same day, which it is impossible. The most enjoyable part of the job is when our effort and professionalism is recognized for the board of directors and managers.
Nice place to learn and have the culture of training the beginner

Porous Surface Operator (Former Employee), Warsaw, IN – July 28, 2014
Pros: the satisfaction of knowing you did a job well done.
Cons: sometimes i would skip break just so i could get the job done on time or before the end of day.
I spent 21yrs here love working at Zimmer.We worked hard and fast pace.Team player, had to be.Each job you did goes to the next person before sent to hospitals.What i learned is consistency and time management.Two important steps to keep the work flowing.Deadlines can sometimes be the hardest but we always made our deadlines .even when we got our job orders at the last minute
Investment Castings Operator (Current Employee), Warsaw, IN – June 17, 2014
I love my job at Zimmer because it's unique. The management team is always willing to talk to you, whether they give you the answer you want or not is a different story but that's life. I have been able to work tons of overtime for the past 7 years. The hardest part of the job right now is the hours. I've been the lowest on seniority for the last 5 years and have no sign of going to day shift. The hours are also different than the standard 7-3 job so it can conflict with family schedules.
CNC Machinist (Former Employee), warsaw, in. – June 10, 2014
Typical day consisted of trying to avoid drama and harassment within the company. Didn't learn anything I already didn't know, except keep your head down and tail tucked. Management was poor and favored the fulltime employees and more of the women when It came to fulltime. Co-workers harassed and falsified information and documentation as well as management. There was nothing hard about this job. The most enjoyable part was when I got paid. I worked voluntarily 7 days a week a lot.
Marketing (Current Employee), Carlsbad,ca – May 23, 2014
Pros: decent pay
Cons: bad benefits, not a family friendly company
Decent pay, they used to have great benefits but now that they changed their benefit package it is horrible. There are a few people particular that(in more than one department), if your not in their clique, they will act friendly to your face but start gossiping behind your back so keep your friends close but your enemies closer if you start working there. I am searching for a new job as we speak due to the poor management..
Customer Srevice Representative (Current Employee), Warsaw, IN – May 19, 2014
I have enjoyed and appreciated my job at ZImmer. The day pretty much consist of being at you desk waiting on the next phone call and doing other assignments inbetween calls. It requires good time management. I love my co-workers, that is one thing I will miss when I retire. The hardest part of the job is, due to the amount of calls we take a day, getting everyting done by the end of each day. I love helping people and working with my co-workers
Quality (Former Employee), Dover, Ohio – December 14, 2013
Pros: decent pay
Cons: long hours
This facility promotes and excels at an extreme culture of fear and intimidation. The company uses the archaic forced ranking system to rate employees. There is a mercenary culture where everyone is out for themselves. Idea sharing does not occur due to the fear of someone else looking better than you which would put you on the chopping block. Managers are drones and do not provide any direction. I am happy I left.
Inventory Control/ Laser Etch Technician (Former Employee), warsaw in – December 11, 2013
Typical day was putting product away helping engineers. Learned paperwork was essential dates and making sure your name was written down. Our Management team was wonderful worked just as hard as people on the floor did. My co-workers were very team oriented great people. Making sure deadlines were met.Most enjoyable part was the people engineers and management.
Territory Manager (Former Employee), Fargo, North Dakota – November 20, 2013
Pros: smaller geographic region to cover
Cons: really had to focus on a few key customers.
Daily case preperation. Observed many total hip and total knee replacement procedures. Which was rather interesting.
Management was very conflicting because of their willingness to compromise patient and physician potentials. I was always on my own. Management failed to compensate me with promised bonuses that were earned.
The hardest part was making sure the proper inventory was on hand and sterile for the procedures. The most enjoyable was consulting the O.R. staff and surgeons with how to best advise them with best potential outcome with the correct options to accomplish this.
