The industry itself is very competitive, but Wright Medical knows how to have fun while working hard. For the past few years, one of the company's focus was to improve employee satisfaction. Also, the management is great. They are caring and really want the best for you.
Wright Medical (Current Employee) – California – April 27, 2018
Wright Medical does not invest ANYTHING into their reps. Managers will use you for your industry knowledge to serve their own selfish purposes and then throw you out. Worst management ever....Worst culture ever. Being in the industry over 20 years and this is the WORST company I've ever encountered. Management has zero integrity. Your career will take a turn for the worse...and it will happen behind your back.
Inexperienced management. Lack of integrity, lack of transparency. Doesn't invest in their people.
No communication whatsoever to get the job done. Disorganized.

A typical day at work: 5:30 A.M. driving to work and the company phone starts blowing up with do this and do that and do this and if that's not that then do this and this? 6:00 A.M. arrive at work. Forgot one of the details. Call the boss for clarification and am reproached for not listening. Ever tried driving in Houston at 5:30 and remembering blah blah blah on the other end of the phone? 8:00-9:00ish. The overseer arrives and put the hands in everything which leads to to total confusion and a communication breakdown, but wait, there was no communication to begin with. 3:00 P.M. Thank God I could leave. Unfriendly, uncomunicative, employees. Total half-arsed operation.
Excellent wages. I spent several years working for Wright Medical. Co-workers non-collaborative and suspicious. Department Manager condoned employees informing on each other on documentation errors. Hostile atmosphere. Excessive overtime to meet company goals.I worked hard and in a professional manner but was never adequately recognized , compensated or promoted.
If you do not like like to be constantly judged or have someone looking over your shoulder then this is not the company for you.
Direct Sales Representative (Former Employee) – New Hampshire – November 26, 2017
This was once a great company, they do have exceptional products, however management is the worse I've seen in industry. The upper extremity RM is horrible.
Great Products...pay was fair until they cut commissions
Management is living in a box, a foot and ankle company running a shoulder company, it just doesn't work. The upper extremity regional manager is the worse person I've ever worked for, he is a liar, backstabber, and should not be working for the company. If you report bad behavior, your out, its that simple. I'm so thankful I found a way out.
Professional but laid back atmosphere. Treats employees/contractors well, and company is gaining momentum in market
Data Analyst (Former Employee) – Bloomington, MN – July 18, 2017
My experience was pleasant with this company. Professional atmosphere, while still promoting fun for the employees. This corporation is on a growing trajectory, and actively works on growing talent within the company.
Machinist III (Former Employee) – Arlington, TN – April 19, 2017
I loved working for wright medical. I considered my coworkers to be family. My only complaint was the revolving door of Management that had no idea what Machinists do that liked to micromanage every small aspect of the job. I work very hard I loved my job and I gave my all everyday but management has no idea what we are doing.
bad Management and too many managers micro managing
Political, biased, unmotivational, and poor management.
Instrument set controller (Former Employee) – Bloomington, MN – November 29, 2016
Politic cultured, Good few people, and most will portray as a friend but only to get what they need. Unable to create drive in their employees by the lack of management to utilize each potential. Management will make the necessary adjustment even if they have to bend the rules. Will approve for negative time off but only for certain individuals. DC are always sidetrack. Some co-workers makes the unnecessary remarks in a daily basis and management in DC are very unprofessional with the lack of knowledge of the business.
Decent pay and good benefits.
Unprofessional, "start-up company, " too many leads, supervisors, and managers that misdirect their focus and energy in the wrong executions.
Wright Medical, Inc has been a challenging but humbling experience in my medical billing journey. I appreciate the experience.
Account Receivable Specialist (Current Employee) – Huntsville, AL – July 5, 2016
A typical day begins with greetings among staff members and quickly dispersing to individual work stations. A staff meeting is generally scheduled once per week but if there is something new to share with staff members, management does so at this time. Absences are discussed so that cross-trained staff know their roles and responsibilities. And the day begins! I have received a wealth of knowledge and gained so much experience working at Wright Medical. The management is a "Mom & Pop" style; yet, determined to produce quality durable medical equipment and services for the community. My coworkers are respectful and diligent workers. The hardest part of my job is that there seems to never be enough time in the day to do all that I am committed to do. The most enjoyable part of the job presently is the knowledge that I am assisting this company in weathering the storm of Medicare audits and cuts! It is appalling what is happening to the DME industry.
Master Hub Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – June 14, 2016
The wrong people were high up in management only because they had been there for awhile/politics. They were not receptive to good ideas to improve business function, efficiency, cost reduction, or general process improvement.
wages were above average, benefits were great
management had no idea what was happening at floor level
