    I have been working at Stryker as an intern

    Pros

    The culture is one of the best reasons for working at Stryker. The people are incredible. There is no place quite like it.

    Cons

    There is always more work to be done. Great place if you enjoy being busy and challenged. Not a good place if you want to slack off at all.

    I have been working at Stryker full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Highly motivated growth company with industry leading implants.

    Cons

    Definitely a lifestyle choice in regards to the medical device sales industry.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the acquisitions and diversification, look for ever expanding markets to lead the way!

    Pros

    Stryker is a great company to work for. They promote employee morale, are supportive of work/life balance, encourage upward mobility, provide a good benefits package and competitive salaries. There is a positive atmosphere and I've met a lot of wonderful people working here. Managers want you to succeed and encourage you to keep moving up. There is opportunity for travel in many of the positions.

    Cons

    Very corporate-style. Not really a con, just something to be aware of.

    I have been working at Stryker full-time

    Pros

    Generally good culture, people are valued. Opportunities to move across functional groups and divisions. Certainly done well as one of the top growth companies over the last 30 years.

    Cons

    IT shakeup is causing turmoil, significant turnover. Company struggles with enterprise decisions and direction now that it has reached a large size - still thinks as a small company at times. All in all, though, a good choice.

    I have been working at Stryker as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company culture and passion for fulfilling the Stryker mission. Fast-paced work environment with high productivity. Interns are given real projects that will have lasting impact on the company. They are given freedom and responsibility, which allows them the opportunity to prove their abilities.

    Cons

    Applying online does not seem to result in future opportunity with the company. Reaching out to the company through career or recruiting fairs seems like the best way to get an interview opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Providing upgrades to some of the technology would help with improvements in efficiency.

    I have been working at Stryker as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Opportunity to contribute on real world projects. Chance to explore the industry in all facets; whether it be quality, R&D, marketing, sales, HR, finance... you name it. Decent pay. Paid for relocation which was tremendous. Great culture and driven individuals who work together for a better product. Mobility is present as many have moved around within the company.

    Cons

    Decent pay but not overly competitive. Interview process was long and difficult but understandably so. Not a whole lot to complain about really.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. Positive encouragement is working and you guys use it to your advantage. The urging to pursue interests and activities outside of our normal responsibilities is unique and appreciated.
