I have been working at Stryker full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Met some great people there. (but eventually they all moved on.) A goood stepping stone to enter the Medical Device business and network. Good benefits in comparison to similar companies including vacation.

Cons

Not very cohesive and well structured.
Salaries are not competitive here particularly in a high cost of living area. Moving to a similar position in another company and lower cost region can increase your net income by 50%.
Unqualified management: individuals very often get thrown into management based on ability to talk the talk!
No accountability for unprofessionalism at the management level and technical abilities are not given much credit here so you often have the blind leading the blind. Managers in technical positions don't always have the technical skills or much experience in the roles that they supervise and cannot perform in an advisory role. They are nothing more than project managers.
Very high stress environment and this is evident in the high turnover. Teams have completely turned over and left the company in a short space of time and Human Resources doesn't take any interest or seem to care to do anything about it.
No accountability for individual responsibilities or signatures. Upper management often doesn't know any better when presented with a proposal or document.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get your act together! Enforce a policy of accountability for team performance and turnover. Hold HR accountable for being HR representatives and not just the V.P.'s associate.

    Pros

    Good benefits, great work culture, challenging work, good learning, good opportunities for growth and development. Stryker has been profitable for decades.

    Cons

    There are not many cons to working at Stryker. The deadlines are on the aggressive side, which is not necessarily a con but the job can have pressure at times. We don't enough vending machines :P.

    Pros

    Stryker had a great training program. The reps and managers I worked with were the best in the industry.

    Cons

    Working for a distributor is not as ideal as working for Stryker direct.
