Former Employee - Technical Lead in San Jose, CA
Former Employee - Technical Lead in San Jose, CA

I worked at Stryker full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

- Competitive compensation - They pay you at market rates.

Cons

- A lot of politics. If you have contacts at higher level, you can get done whatever you want against HR policies as well
- Less growth opportunities
- No freedom to present your ideas. Management is autocratic. They dont want to listen to you. If they dont like you, your life would be made hell.
- Wont find very highly intellectual crowd
- HR is not strong at all. There can be cases where the policies can be ignored. Employees can not bank on HR for support at all.
- You can work beyond your responsibilities and still not be recognized or appreciated,

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Please consider your team members as part of your team and stop having favorites.
- Be open to ideas from everyone and have trust in people that you yourself hire else dont hire them.
- Give everyone a fair opportunity and dont have pre conceived notions.
- Dont try to micro manage every employee

    None that I saw their internship program was great I learned a ton

    They should have a leadership development program for new graduates so that students that intern with them have an opportunity to join the company.
