How are the layoffs at Zimmer impacting hiring?

Medtronic Saves the Day

3 years ago

It's obvious Medtronic needs to do something in Ortho so I'm curious what you think they should do? The move with Mazor has been solid but aside from that, they really don't have much else going on.

ROSA Robot

Growing as in a hospital getting one for free and sitting in the closet? Or if Zimmer is lucky enough to get a purchase order for one yet still sits in the closet? I'm a believer of Robotic Surgery but ROSA and its competitors aren't really anything more than a surgeon using Google Maps to get to the grocery store down the street from his or her house. It's unnecessary.

Would a Zimmer Biomet surgical rep be able to provide thoughts on the sales job with the surgical division? Pay, culture and products

Inferior products, underpaid reps who have always over-delivered, toxic culture. If you're going to pay me at 50% of what I was expecting then at least be honest about it.
