Ping-Pong Tables. Really??? A bunch of Dope heads.

Manipulations, Shady financials, No new products, No vision.See the stock...

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!

    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.

    Get consultants to re-organize all the research labs.

    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.
