I have been working at Stryker full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Comfortable work environment. Work from home. Casual hours. Few actual responsibilities. No deadlines. No pressure.

Cons

Trivial work assignments on trivial products. Weird management structure. Subscribes to Gallup which means personality interviews before they will even look at your resume. They seem to want a very shallow superficial type of person. They outsource almost all engineering challenges. They make a big deal about the littlest tings. Social relationships are more important than actual work. You must conform to the team.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would give management advice but they would never listen to it.

    I have been working at Stryker

    Pros

    You have an ability to be part of a huge corporation but still get treated and recognized y upper management.

    Cons

    Tough for advancement opportunities when going from sales rep to trainer/management. Stryker is notorious for being late to the party with innovative products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would love to see more opportunities for great reps to have the opportunity to advance with stryker. There are a lot of hard working reps looking to advance.
