Pros

Stryker is a fast growing company where those who are driven can thrive. Great culture that cares about eachother and our customer. Employees are generally happy people and are always on board to support the community we live in. There is a great 401K matching and discretionary plan along with many other benefits offered. There are also lots of opportunity for training, team development and employee events. I have visited many suppliers where culture and respect for employees and their engagement are lacking so I can truly appreciate what we have here. There is also a current shift to encourage better balance in work and homelife coming from the top down.

Cons

Lots of changes for us in the past couple of years with leadership, structure and processes which causes confusion and uncertainty in the workforce. although in the past, it's normal to average 1-2 mgrs a year, I am now on my 5th mgr in 18 month period while I have been in the same position. It is hard to get process improvements through with so many layers to go through and projects go on hold or lost in the way waiting for these changes to settle and process through all of the layers - this is hard on folks who are driven. We also need to invest in updating some of our technology that is outdated.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let's let the dust settle for a minute and stick to the direction that is being communicated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company is doing great "according to the leadership" In Reality ...no direction, no vision, no plan, back stabbing to get the next promotion, and if you are hidding all bad decisions..like invested $150M on a aquisition and after it Completely FAILED and money were lost all the employees that were part of that "sweet deal" got promoted at Director level as a "reward"..This is Stryker!

    I worked at Stryker as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good for resume
    Tours available to get an over view of the industry
    Extensive industry library

    Cons

    Managers do not understand other people's projects even if they are relevant to their own work.
    Mechanical engineers running some of the labs do not understand the chemical and biological implications of certain aspects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get consultants to re-organize all the research labs.
