Trauma - Concede to having no life outside of your job

Sales Associate (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I worked at Stryker full-time for more than a year

ProsMoney is above average if you are newly graduated from college... estimated between $50,000 to $75,000+. You start on contract so that you can learn the business and products.

ConsMarkets are shrinking due to the company increasing the amount of associates and Reps in one territory. In addition to the Markets shrinking so is the margins for a individual rep. Due to the contract pricing structure, hospitals are bundling services/products and getting huge price discounts which in turn leave the Rep doing the same if not more amount of work for less money.
