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.
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.
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!
Contract Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Warsaw IN – March 6, 2018
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
Associate Distributor, Orthopedic Implants (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – November 28, 2017
This was my debut company in the implant sales world after working as a private scrub tech for my father and his partners. I enjoyed it... and learned a lot. My distributor was leaving the company, so i too decided to spread my wings and venture elsewhere.
Sports Medicine Assembler (Former Employee) – Warsaw, IN – August 30, 2017
Biomet was a very friendly place to work and the managment were easy going. The work was decently easy as well. Pay was good and you recieve a decent amount of vacation days! I'd recommend to a friend!
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.
Receptionist, Regulatory Clerk (Former Employee) – Warsaw, IN – June 5, 2017
I enjoyed working at Biomet the position They taught me how to read Blue Prints for instruments being ordered. All in all I had a good experience at Biomet and time will spent. I had to leave due to the position being downsized.
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.
