I have been working at Stryker full-time (More than 5 years)RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEORecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
Extremely competitive environment promotes quality sales people and leadership. Brand name recognition will help you get your foot in the door to new customers. Disposable income and cash reserves allow stability in acquisition market. Training program is top notch and you will never regret coming to work for Stryker because you will be able to get a gig nearly anywhere if you end up leaving
Small sales geographies with a "divide and conquer mentality". Stryker has a strong personality and can be detrimental depending on your market. Expectations are high and you are always on the clock for next month, quarter and year. National contracts negotiators are trying to hold price on new products which slows down ability to sell new tech. Very slow to market with same tech. Can seem like they believe each sales person is replaceable with a younger version that will come cheaper (not unique to SYK)
Advice to Management
I wish it didn't feel so much like everyone was trying to make their way up the corporate ladder. Upper management is a game of musical chairs and most reps are using Stryker as a stepping stone to a higher paid job.
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- No OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks – interviewed at Stryker.
The interview was about a half hour long of extremely difficult questions. The interviewer seemed completely uninterested and was not friendly at all. Although I was not offered a position, the interviewer definitely did not seem like someone I would want to work with or for every day. This entire experience made me remember why I never bothered with Stryker before. They are looking for specific personality types and quickly write off anyone who does not meet that Type A criteria. My advice is to just be yourself because if they don't hire you, chances are it's not a place you would like to work anyways.
