Drink the Koolaid!

Manager (Current Employee)
Kalamazoo, MI

ProsYou go home every day knowing that the products you make/sell/promote are designed to help people at the lowest points in their lives, while they are sick in a hosptial. These products make patients more comfortable and can assist in the healing process. There is a lot of pride working for a company that helps others in this way.

ConsDrink the Koolaid or it will be a rough experience. Stryker prides itself in "talent management" and relies heavily upon The Gallup Organization for personality profile results to determine "strengths" for each employee. The company uses this process to justify some personnel actions. Employees who question the culture may find it difficult to enjoy success and may find themselves marginalized. The company moves so quickly in the R&D process that it often violates its own New Product Development processes in favor of performance metrics. End result is poor quality and no fewer than 4 product recalls in 2008.

Advice to Senior ManagementSlow down. The customers and, more importantly, the end users deserve higher quality in all product lines. First to market is not as good as best in market. Follow procedures and do not forsake them to meet metrics.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
