I have been working at Stryker full-time (more than 10 years)

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.

    I have been working at Stryker as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great place to intern! Handed many projects from day one to cahmpion and lead but with individuals wanting to help. Good balance of high expectations with room to fail.

    Cons

    Expected to get up to speed asap. Medical industry has a lot of nuiances that can be challenging to understand. Everyone is very high performing, must be able to go at a very high speed from the get go.
