    Pros

    Gallup organization, almost everyone focuses on results, not politics. The company really cares about you as an individual and focuses on building on your strengths, they do NOT focus on your "weaknesses." #19 on Fortune 100 Great Place to Work - that says a lot.

    Cons

    Very fast pace, you have to be able to produce results and get the job done.

    Pros

    - lot of type A personalities, great collaboration
    - open communication, people ready to help you at any time

    Cons

    - you have to manage your own career development which is not necessarily a bad thing but you might not get the support of your boss or HR without taking initiative

    Advice to Management

    - build on the strengths of your people, use the skills that they have acquired through education

    Pros

    #19 on Fortune 500 list of best companies to work for. Good products, smart people.

    Cons

    Too many "Type-A" personalities. Some people in Upper Management have their noses in the air. Contractors/Consultants are treated as second-class citizens.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at the contractors who work hard and offer them a full time position!

    Pros

    Stryker offers a strong sales culture with all internal teams aligned to create better products and services for not only it's customers but it's sales teams success.

    Cons

    Because the company is publicly traded it makes new product launches very timely. This makes it frustrating when waiting for new products to sell. Ultimately it's a good thing to know that Stryker runs thorough testing on it's product before launch to ensure product success and positive patient outcomes.

    Advice to Management

    Don't assume that all sales reps in the field know everything there is to know about sales. Provide more sales mentoring and coaching or offer regular sales courses.

    Pros

    Great company culture, strong teams, excellent opportunity to advance career. Tremendous brand equity, reputation for high ethical standards, overall top caliber Fortune 500 company.

    Cons

    For some, the work environment can be overly competitive, though most thrive that enjoy the constant challenge to push and be pushed. Turnover a bit on the high side, though not bad for a company of this size.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing profound to add here, the overall corporate culture, mission, quality policy, etc. have all been well developed over many decades of successful leadership.
