Their bathroom and lockers are in the same environment and all of that is across from the breakroom, where employees consume food and beverages. They give speeches for hours without any resolutions EVER! They should be ashamed but I know they are not...Not one bit. They change employees like underwear."

"I worked at Smith & Nephew full-time for more than a year Cons: Management is very bad and not even qualified. They don't employ many females and management had certificate in tool and dye.

"I worked at Smith & Nephew full-time Cons: Culture is terrible, management is a joke, HR is no help when you need them, they’re worried about retaining employees yet do nothing to do so, too much drama and lack of professionalism, walking on eggshells, favoritism is huge here, also they have the worry’s unfair system of tracking numbers/credit for reps- it’s completely inaccurate and unfair."


"I have been working at Smith & Nephew Cons: This has been the absolute worst hiring process I have ever been through. I interviewed with two separate divisions of this company (sports medicine and wound care). Both divisions were fighting back and forth over who started the process first and neither one of them ended up offering me the job after dragging me along for two months. One division leader lied to the other and asked them to stop they’re hiring process with me, and the other division (after two interviews and a ride along decided to tell me I didn’t have the qualifications for the job. Note: the first division of the same corporation said I didn’t need a Bachelors Degree. The first division also never called to tell me that they hired someone else, after I tried getting in contact with them for almost a week. This has not only wasted two months of my time between interviews but also my time at my current job and away from my family by continuing with an interview process that should have never began if I didn’t have the qualifications."

Former Employee - Engineer says

"I worked at Smith & Nephew full-time Cons: The management team has absolutely no idea what they are doing. No one can make a decision. If you’re the type of person who can show up to work and get paid for sitting at your desk this is the place for you. They claim to be innovative but anyone who shows initiative is told no to sit down and be quiet. Completely hypocritical throughout the entire organization."
