Product Surveillance Engineer (Current Employee) – Warsaw, IN – May 31, 2018
In post-market surveillance, work/life balance does not exist. Working 8-6:30 every day and being threatened with weekend work every week is not okay. Pre-merge, Biomet was an excellent place to work where everyone got along and management understood the job their employees were doing. Post-merge, it's not even close to being a viable place to work. Management is unhelpful and does nothing to reduce the amount of stress. Instead, they change processes without realizing the consequences, and force the employees to work even more to make up for the failures. At least we have a good CEO now, hopefully things will turn around sooner rather than later.

Arrive around 6 work until around 5:30. Stressful all day. manager plays favorites and is very moody and unprofessional. Learned more about Microsoft and Pros The culture is ever changing the whole place feels unsure. Ignoring ever changing moods of co workers and manager. Clocking out and going home
Machinist (Former Employee) – Warsaw – August 24, 2018
Poor management. Folks with degrees matter everyone else is considered labor pool. No relocation assistance for employees without degrees. You are nothing more than a number to the higher ups. The less work you do the more you are paid. A true good ole boy environment. This place is a sinking ship that thinks the you need a degree to be of any value to the company.
Quality Control Inspector (Former Employee) – Warsaw, IN – May 30, 2018
Like every other hard working middle class person, the number one reason for people and myself leaving a job is when the management of that company is always rotating new supervisors in and out like candy. No helpful direction for troubleshooting, no help when emergencies happen at home, and no understanding when you cannot make the same quality item with less material than before. There is Lean Manufacturing, then there is impossible manufacturing.
Pay, vacation time
Horrible company since sold and management is a sham!
Daily sales calls ans well as patient fiitings with bone growth stimulators. How to treat non-union fractures. Management was a little pushy but, not over-bearing.
Coworkers were very close and enjoyable to be associated with. The hardest part of the job was keeping the business. The market was being introduced to other alternative technologies ( ultrasound ). Similar to when PMT launched their halo technology benefits over Bremer and Jerome orthopedics ( which I had to deal with when I was at MacMed).
The most enjoyable part of my job was when most of the patients that I fit the EBI bone growth stimulator with experienced reunion of their fracture. This was very personally rewarding.
Manager (Current Employee) – Warsaw, IN – March 23, 2015
The overall environment is laid back yet professional. I have been given advancement opportunities and have been appropriately compensated. Biomet Inc would be a wonderful place to build a career, however due to the acquisition currently in progress, the future for many is uncertain.
Good benefit and compensation packages
Long hours, Biomet is currently being acquired by a competitor so future position with the company is uncertain.
Friendly, fast-paced, quality-oriented workplace with highly productive and helpful management. Great pay, great (and largely affordable!) benefits, great job security and somewhat flexible hours. Promotion is a hard-won achievement, but is far from impossible,
tuition assistance, excellent healthcare and fringe benefits.
No such thing as a routine day at work. Work is hard and challenging
Orthopedic Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Long Island, NY – May 21, 2014
Work is hard and challenging but can feel rewarding being that you are in the medical field and knowing your hard work is beneficial to society. However, the work life balance is not so good being that you are always on call and don't always get compensated for it. The work demand compared to the salary that you receive is unfair.
Orthopaedic Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Exton, PA – March 16, 2017
The people, culture, management, and work/life balance are all incredible! Not to mention, the work we do here -- helping people get jobs-- is THE most rewarding work I've ever done. I'm constantly challenged by the work, which has helped me learn and grow so quickly. Management also makes you feel like your opinion and input actually matters, and WILL put it into practice. Growth opportunities here are immense, and management is always willing to help work with you to help achieve your career goals.
i was taught how to read calipers and micrometers. i was taught how to form poly mold. The worst part of the job was the whole hiring-in process after being brought in by a temp service & not being able to switch to a different shift in the same department without being senority.

Biomet is a good place to work. They have great benefits and treat there employees well for a big company. Promotions are not so easy to come by. The only bad thing is that it is hard to advance within the company.
Packager (Former Employee) – Warsaw, IN – February 8, 2017
Biomet has a very nice ventilation system. This job was very easy for me. It was through a temp. agency so, I was not making a whole lot at the time. I had to find another job quickly. I would have stayed if I was hired in full time.
