I worked at Stryker

Pros

The company has a good culture and pushes employees to be the best. Most employees are very competitive and want to be the best, and Stryker provides plenty of opportunities for top performers to advance their careers within the company. It can be a great place to build a career if you work hard, have a competitive personality, and play your cards right. If you aren't very driven or aren't a top performer, you might burn out or end up in the same role for a long period of time.

Cons

Job satisfaction seems to have a lot to do with management. If your manager is supportive and flexible, it's a great place to work. If your manager isn't very supportive or flexible, it's not such a great place to work. It's a pretty competitive company, so if you're not a competitive or motivated person or not a Type A personality, things could get miserable.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Most of the management seems to be doing a good job though, and the best managers use the competitive environment to their advantage to develop employees rather than burn them out.

    I have been working at Stryker

    Pros

    Excellent talent. Great opportunity for leadership growth. Financially stable company. Autonomy.

    Cons

    knee jerk reaction to operational issues. Very competitive culture to an extreme that creates conflicting goals due to poor metric development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Drop some of the leadership who manage upwards selfishly rather than actually care for implementing sustainable business and manufacturing processes.
