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.
A typical day at work, entailed answering questions regarding using medical products. As well provide support to not only the customer but the hospitals, clinics, doctors and sales representative. What you learned is how to satisfy the customers need and be respective of their conditions, as well be empathetic. Management of time was paramount because one managed a territory of many states in the US. So the phones were constantly ringing as well the email were needing to be answered as well voicemail. So splitting your time up being brief and precise was very important. The workplace culture was dependent on myself and three others. Our knowledge of the company's products was very important. Our department was the go to department for the customer and their usage of the product. The hardest part of the job was to prioritize the calls. Since all calls dealt with customers and their usage, often times you must be able to be attentive to all and give each and everyone above and beyond quality care. The most enjoyable part of the job was hearing the customer say that you satisfied their questions and you did it with kindness.
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.
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.
Accounts Receivable Clerk (Former Employee) – Warsaw, IN – January 31, 2017
I really liked that my responsibilities were made very clear and kept me busy. Management seemed to behave in a professional manner at all times. The only draw back would be that their pay scale doesn't quite match up to the industry standard.
Customer Service / Sales Support (Current Employee) – Modesto, CA – November 17, 2016
Horrible management. LOTS of favoritism. Workplace bullying is allowed and alive here. Impossible to move up or learn a new skill to get promoted because they train you for one job and ONE job only. They make it very clear work comes before your family. Any convos with HR are NOT confidential.
Workplace bullying, won't train you in other areas, favoritism by management, management is POOR.
Expediter (Former Employee) – Warsaw, IN – April 20, 2016
comfortable, working on your own, free hot chocolate and coffee is always a plus. I had my own work place, everybody was always quick to help me. I enjoyed being at my desk on my computer. I was good at that. hardest part id say was kitting orders.

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Warsaw, IN – January 3, 2016
I loved every aspect of this job. The people are amazing, everyone treats you as family. I had learned more then I ever thought that I would in this position. Working with the Vice Presidents and Directors, I was able to build a better work ethic at an executive level.
If your are needing a check, it will pay the bills
Advanced CNC Machinist Class A (Current Employee) – warsaw IN – September 16, 2015
workers are expected to take on full work loads in their area and others. knowledge is pushed on the workers, management plays by a different sent of rules. coworkers are easy to work with and get along
I was given the opportunity to advance and took advantage of the in-house classes for machinist training. I learned how to run SwSS machines to manufacture dental implants also learned how to use the vision inspection systems IE; microview and cmm's. Learning not to be intimedated by the complexity of the SR20 machines was difficolt for me. I had the satisfaction of knowing that i produced the finest dental implant on the market.
many special training classes and meetings with the president every so often
Shipped machines to China causing me to be layed off after 7 years of service
