Finisher (Former Employee) – Mansfield, MA – August 16, 2018
this company changed allot. they used to care about the employees. they took away allot of the fun things they did for the employees. the company started to care about the $$ they was spending on their employees but hey i guess its ok to place over 12, 72" tv all over the place though as they cut out all the stuff the employees got to do. its basically a place or u to work at nothing more
Quality Assurance Specialist II (Current Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – July 30, 2018
I have worked here for 3 years and definitely have found the company I was looking for since I got my degree. The people and management are great; the work/life balance is wonderful. I have been able to grow and learn here at my own pace.
Operations Specialist (Current Employee) – Tempe, AZ – July 8, 2018
This was the first time I have experienced a work environment like this. Very unprofessional,lack of communication and verbal abuse. I extremely DO NOT recommend this company to anyone. Yes they are very successful but id rather be with a company who cares about there employees.
Finisher (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN – July 8, 2018
Never knew what work load you had until you came to work. Very unorganized,confusion, switching from one job to next, number of errors everyday. I was promised permanent but never happen. I was a excellent employee.
Management is inconsiderate and condescending to production floor employees. They do not listen to production floor employees about issues that are hindering their performance. Management continuously increases production demands, but does not incorporate improved systems that would set their employees up for success. And although management knows it all, they somehow can't figure out how to significantly decrease scrap and improve their employee retention rate. My supervisor has the poorest interpersonal skills I've ever experienced from any member of management.
Also, the pressure of meeting production rates is so high, many times employees skip company provided breaks. Sad to say, Smith & Nephew is a modern day sweat shop. The only difference is they have air-conditioned facilities.
This company needs a complete management overhaul. They can't keep people, because they don't know how to treat people.
Several meetings per day, Learned that my development is up to me the company will not influence it. Culture changed to unprofessional, hardest part of job was balancing managing and performing analysis work for upper management. The most enjoyable was being able to share expertise and knowledge with others. Working together to solve problems and seeing results.
Production Scheduler/ Buyer (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN – May 30, 2018
Stress driven to make production number, and sacrifice to quality. the benefits and pay outweigh the issue that the management have to endure.Most cases you do get the chance to meet great people along the way.
Product Specific Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Wisconsin – May 26, 2018
It was cool to be able to get in to something like this without schooling since its a mix of sales and medical knowledge. Indirect sales reps are not the way to go since they dont have the security and systems in play to really succeed.
Foot in the door for potential growth in that field
