Pros

Comp can be attractive if you work hard and catch a few breaks. Tough industry in general. Really takes a unique individual to succeed.

Cons

Stryker expects more of their sales reps than any of the other competitors. This is evident everywhere... Stryker gets more done with fewer reps. Sometimes I think they forget how lucky they are to have some of the individuals they do.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The sales management should talk to the reps in each branch...

AVPs approach GMs and Sales managers for a "State of the Union" in their respective territory. Then they take them at their word... guess what? That's a bad way to find out if the sales reps are satisfied with management. Q12s are a joke. Get out in the field and ask reps at each branch (confidentially) how their managers are performing. I think it would be eye opening. Just because a branch is above quota doesn't mean it's a result of the managers... they could be standing in the way of even faster growth! The opposite is also true... a branch/agency might not be at quota, but they might have a hell of a great leadership team.

AVPs... Charlie... All you guys... come out and talk to us.

    Pros

    If you have a 4 year degree and want to believe in their hollow promise you can achieve the title of president in 2 short years if you only "believe in the Stryker culture" it's a great place to work! It is also highly entertaining to watch the executives ignore the blatant, long term and lethal problems that present themselves in favor of fabric colors for the walls and lunch catering for the quarterly meetings.

    Cons

    Unless you have a 4 year degree you are treated like a cockroach. Policies are routinely put in place that alienate the people that actually do the work while reinforcing the egos of those who merely watch. The competitiveness and back stabbing that are actually encouraged kill any sense of company loyalty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop punishing the masses for the sins of a few! Value experience and ability as well as education! Stop valuing competition and back stabbing above all other talents! Provide for true opportunities and input from all levels within the company.
