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.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Kalamazoo, MI
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Kalamazoo, MI

    I worked at Stryker full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great products, great company mission, good compensation and general benefits. Wonderful local community in Kalamazoo with excellent schools and resources for families.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is nonexistent -- they will tell you what you want to hear during the recruiting process but be ready to make this organization the center of your life. Regardless of your abilities, your success here is defined by who you know. An earlier review states that at Stryker, "You're great ... until you're not." Couldn't put it any better. Upset the wrong person and you are done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in infrastructure. Recognize that people often have families. Improve your communications -- and LISTEN to your employees.

    Pros

    Stryker is a strong company with many divisions and products. Would have enjoyed being a direct employee instead of stuck in a distributor

    Distributor RM Medical is a nightmare
    -commissions always changing
    -reps calling on surgeons behind each other back
    -terrible reputation around town. everyone knows the owners and cannot trust them!!
    Stryker Spine needs to be more innovative
