It was my first working and office environment. Everyone wanted to give us their knowledge. Managers are supportive. It quite peaceful environment were you expected to be professional. What I noticed was that all managers were calm they did not jump to conclusion and there are good observers. They picked up that I have no computer knowledge and took me for classes without making me feel small and many more. I gained a lot of office orientation.
Excellent company with great benefits. Effective training and coaching> Room for growth. Global territories available. Challenging and fun atmosphere. Is an innovative and demanding medical device manufacturer. They are a leader in the Wound Management , Orthopedic and Sports Medicine areas and a great place to work. No better job exists than one that , at its core, is focused on making patient's lives genuinely better
Benefits and Training Growth

Words of praise from management for a day gone well.
Not being given praise when all went smoothly
Morning started with checking my email for feedback,queries from customers hospitals. Order processing. Stock availability checking. Office was very relaxed always. Explaining to a customer why a patient was billed incorrectly. A challenge but loved getting to the bottom of it.
Words of praise from sales representatives and customers
Customer not being satisfied with the efficiency of a problem being sorted
I worked for Smith & Nephew for 18 years, I enjoyed my first 10 years of employment. The last 8 years I was very unhappy as Management changed, I was very unhappy with their ethics.
Very good perks

Working at Smith & Nephew has afforded me the opportunity to engage with people on so many levels and gave me the opportunity to put my knowledge, skills and experience into practice. I have no regrets working at this company as they provided a platform for growth and innovation. The hardest part of working at the company is the culture on managing on perception. Efforts and Good work is not valued or even often ignored or never acknowledged. career advancement is a bit of an issue as there are people that have been in their roles for a long time and are not willing to move and give others a chance to prove that they can also do the jobs. The most enjoyable part of the job is the opportunity to travel and engage with people on all levels. The opportunity for career growth is not such a positive aspect. Overall, i love working at S&N, management just needs to accept change and not be so resistent.
opportunity to travel, Great benefits, freedom of engagement with key stakeholders and Key opinion leaders of the company
no acknowledgement for a job well done, no credit is given where credit is due
I get to the office and go through my email, then list all those that need to be actioned. Collect all filing doccumentation and assist managers with various tasks they need done through out the day.I have learnt the importance of time management and prioritising ttasks as well as paying attention to detail because a minor insignificant mistake could have a major effect on another level.My co-workers are very pleasent and friendly people which makes my day at the office that much easier.My job gets rather challenging whenever we have multiple conferances to prepair for at the same time because they are usually in diffarent cities and each have quite a large quantity of marketing mateial handle. However it is very rewarding for me to be aknowledged for the hard work and extra hours i sometimes put in and a new task always gets me excited and eager to get to work.
subsidised lunches. shuttle from the gate every morning .
we work at head office therefore we service many of our other branches aroud sout africa, which can be very demanding at times.
