Current Employee - Senior Principal Software Engineer in Portage, MI
Current Employee - Senior Principal Software Engineer in Portage, MI

I have been working at Stryker (more than an 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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    Pros

    Help people live better lives

    Cons

    No Union so employees are submitted to on the fly decisions about their future and opportunities to grow

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees better. Do not discriminate against individuals with disability. Management needs race diversity, not one black or hispanic executive on board all white management. One spanish executive was moved to Florida and is a token executive.
