    I have been working at Stryker full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I had more than a year as a consultant to work for Stryker and decide that this is great place. After visiting a number of sites and working with so many bright driven people it was an easy decision to become an employee when the opportunity arose.

    Cons

    Much of Stryker's growth has come from acquisitions which has resulted in some fragmentation and silos of process which can be frustrating, especially when participating in projects that span multiple Divisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In spite of Stryker's global presence, there is a US-centric and Michigan-centric bias in the structure that works against collaboration and efficiency. Some attention should be paid to giving other areas such as EU and Asia their voice and sensitizing the US employees to cultural diversity.

    Challenging position selling in the OR and you either make quota every month or fired.

    Make them adhere to working with Account Managers more frequently.
