a company that listens to the needs of their people
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
