Depuy spine Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
DePuy Synthes is a franchise of orthopedic and neurosurgery companies. Acquired by Johnson & Johnson in 1998, its companies form part of the Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices group. DePuy develops and markets products under the Codman, DePuy Mitek, DePuy Orthopaedics, and DePuy Spine brands.
Back in 2013 BRAD PERRIELLO reported for MASS DEVICE about J&J’s DePuy Synthes facing a sues unit over spine implant patent:
Globus Medical (NYSE: GMED) sued Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) yesterday for patent infringement, accusing its DePuy Synthes unit’s Zero-P VA spinal implant of trespassing on a Globus patent. Filed in the U.S. District Court for Delaware, the lawsuit alleges that the Zero-P VA intervertebral fusion implant violates U.S. patent #8,328,872, for an "Intervertebral Fusion Implant," assigned to Globus last December, according to court documents. Globus wants a jury trial, a judgment of infringement, a judgment of willful infringement (and the accompanying triple damages), injunctions barring further infringement, damages, interest, and legal fees. Audubon, Pa.-based Globus also wants the Delaware court to order Synthes to recall and destroy any devices found to infringe the ‘872 patent in the U.S.
Machine operator (Former Employee) says"they all don't understand basic math. Everyone has something better to do than train you and get you where you need to be, the health care sucked and nothing ever came of my vacation days when I needed them.noneAll of it"
Manufacturing Associate (Former Employee) says"Spent 10 years working here and it’s my only regret in life. No place for advancement . Majority of the Managers, and supervisors are strictly out for themselves. Always except the employee to work harder and take on more responsibilities without recognition or compensation.Paid holidaysToo many to list"
IT Site Representative (Current Employee) says"All areas are bad since the takeover!! There are constant layoffs and no one feels appreciated. There is no job security. It is not a good place to work."
Machine Operator (Former Employee) says"Working there was great loved the availability of hours, i have multiple physical and metal health issues and werent very acceptive to them most of the timeLots of OvertimeRather hire temps than hire on to company"
inspector (Former Employee) says"Management plays favorites. Supervision is not clear on their decision making and they too play favorites. No chance of moving up in the company. Men oriented. Women stand no chance unless they sleep with upper management."
IT Technician Level (Former Employee) says"Very un-helpful and unfriendly manager in the IT division. Offered little to no assistance, no one seemed to understand what to do or could understand basic tasks. When asking for assistance, the IT manager will treat you terribly. Extremely low pay considering the work and what they ask of you.NoneSee above."
Set Service Representative (Former Employee) says"Ik voelde me niet welkom op de werkvloer. - - - - - - - - - Hectisch bedrijf, slechte bedrijfsvoering. Relaties op de werkvloer tussen leden van het management."
(Distributor Rep), Various Orthopedic Products (Former Employee) says"horrible company, run through shady distributors. stay away."
Project Coordinator (Current Employee) says"24/7 Work/Unorganized Poor training and management. If you do the work but don't kiss up to management then you might as well quit. Terrible culture and you will be working AROUND THE CLOCKNoneEverything else"
Senior Machine Operator (Current Employee) says"I would rather clean dirty hotel rooms the day after Valentine’s Day then to be stuck in here for the next 30 years until I retire. To anyone who wants to make a career and thinks this is the place to be, take it from somebody who works here. Don’t do it, find another place. The pay isn’t worth all the extra s*** that they make you do on a daily basis."
Distribution Associate (Current Employee) says"I've been working at Depuy for over 3 years as a contractor. When it's time to get a raise everyone gets the same amount (last one was about 30 cents) whether you are an employee that only packs boxes or one that has major responsibilities. If you prove yourself to be a great worker, instead of hiring you to Johnson & Johnson, the management will pile more and more work onto you until you are a hollow shell of a human. Management has absolutely no work ethic. If you would like to do their work for less pay, come on down!"
Sr. Administrative Assistant/Sales Admin (Former Employee) says"was very cut throat, letting go of the older employees and bringing in all newly college graduates with no experience. They time you when you are away from your desk with going to the rest rooms, very micormanagingnothingvery poor management and management treat employees with disrespect"
Sr. Manufacturing Engineer (Former Employee) says"There was no direction given as to what my responsibilities were. It was more like trial by fire. Everyone was too busy to mentor me into the culture. I did not feel like a part of the team. Every time I tried to ask questions I seemed to just bother them. I was very disappointed with the job.."
Associate (Former Employee) says"Childish behavior from co-workers & leaders always seemed short staffed expected to work OT daily with no notice. Other than that it’s an okay place to work and good benefits."
Clinical Contract Specialist (Former Employee) says"They are not involved with any part of your employment..all they care about is getting paid to place you somewhere. They don't tell you why/when you are terminated from a job. Break the law when it comes to asking personal questions during job placement.starting payeverything else"
Senior Process Engineer (Former Employee) says"Did not mesh well with boss. Most of the people I worked with were great! QA staff was a pain in the butt. This job cured me of ever wanting to work for a medical company ever again. Great co-workers, lousy managers."
Project Engineer (Former Employee) says"Unable to advance. Criteria for advancement is ambiguous. There are no opportunities to obtain additional training to help further one's career. Tap-on-the-shoulder promotions.Work/Life BalanceUnable to advance one's career."
Test Engineer (Former Employee) says"If you like temp work with multiple promises of getting in full time, then this is the place to be. Management lies about future. Management also promises to leave great review of work on Linked in, but in every case of people I talked to, this was not the case (including mine in which I was told twice, including my last day, that a positive review would be left on Linkedin). Really sad because the the folks in the lab I worked in were great, but because of the lack of integrity by both the management and the lack of Depuy living by their own Credo I could never recommend this company to anyone.The actual people that work are grreat.Lack of integrity by the Depuy culture."
Instrumentista quirurgica (Former Employee) says"Es una empresa donde no se cumple con los contratos establecidos en la licitación. La jefatura directa no es prodigia ej sus funciones y después te culpa a ti de su mala gestión. Promete cosa a los médicos que jamás llegan, no responde los email cuando son urgente. En otras palabras corre riesgo tu integridad moral como persona."
CNC SENIOR MACHINE OPERATOR (Former Employee) says"This company was fined over $5000 for a federal safety violation that took them over 9 months to fix and only after I pressed the issue. They where requiring employees to operation CNC lathes with the doors open during and automatic operation while the employee had their hands in the door near spinning machine tools. Tried to talk me out of reporting or looking at serious safety issues. Was later fired for bad parts I did not make because they did not want me around to keep reporting safety violations. Work there at your own risk. Good old boy club deeply rooted. Also had managers that would not hire females as machine operators and tended to put women in the packaging or inspector jobs even though several of them wanted to run machines. Also saw good women engineers as contractors get passed over because of their gender. I worked in this plant for over 11 years. I saw all of this as first an employee for Synthes until 2012 and then as a JnJ employee until I was wrongfully terminated. Liked running the machines. Management needs to be replaced fully.Steady workGender Based Discrimination, Not safety oriented, no affordable houseing in the area so long drives to work."
