      Pros

      Company sincerely cares about employees. For example, S+N asks for feedback via surveys and provided free masks and gloves during the pandemic. Good work-life balance! People are passionate. Leadership put their heart and energy into their goals and performance. The core mission is often referenced to. Feels good that the business is focused on improving patients' quality of life and health.

      Cons

      Communication across teams can sometimes be a problem. However, people are usually open to working together when you do reach out across business lines.

      Pros

      Good work/life balance. Good people who want to help one another. Good opportunities for growth and open career discussions.

      Cons

      Mid management can loose sight of reality and get their heads lost in marketing and sales meetings. The people on the ground are the closest to the reality of the market and that should be fed through more. Some (marketing) managers get away with doing nothing at all.

      Smith and Nephew takes care of their employees and looks to provide all benefits and support employees ask for.

      Cons

      There is some disorganization within Smith and Nephew. The company itself is great to work for but the overall execution of growth seems to be disconnected.
