I have been working at Stryker (More than a year)

Pros

It is in Michigan where I live. Pleasant office environment.

Cons

Horrible incompetent backstabbing management. Trivial product - hospital beds and heating pads. No technical future for engineers. Incompetent do-nothing engineering staff. They hire gobs of foreign workers who will work for cheap but who have no skill. Boss is a weak man unable to give face-to-face honest feedback or direction - has to communicate only through formal memos. Gallup driven personality cult.

Advice to Management

Get rid of Gallup. Focus on hiring real engineers, not suck ups. It is not the great place to work that you all think it is. The SWEET team is a sucking blach hole of mismanagement. It shouldn't take five years to put wifi on a hospital bed, or two years to fix an air mattress. Stop outsourcning everything. Stop buying companies and then close theme down and layoff their employees.

    I have been working at Stryker full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good people and decent products - desperately needed strong leadership.

    Cons

    Senior management a mess. Too many acquisitions in too short of a time period, coupled with significant staffing changes created confusion and many good people left.

    Advice to Management

    Settle on senior management - don't leave months and months between putting senior leadership in place. It hurts the company.
