    Pros

    Decent compensation - although not extraordinary, and certainly not per hour when you factor the workweek is WAY longer than comparable positions. Even a non-management position can easily average 55 hour workweeks.

    Cons

    Very negative work environment with arrogant, cocky people that often treat others with disrespect. Departments have such different goals, they work against each other. Lots of ex military are hired in roles that they have no experience in, because management likes their militaristic ways of viewing/solving problems, but they often have little/no experience to effectively do their jobs and they treat their subordinates horribly, while literally yelling at them red-faced, as if a boot camp sergeant. There is no care for employees having any form of a work/life balance, and advancement is moreso about being part of a particular clique than a truly earned position. This was by far my worst work experience ever, and based on the HUGE employee turnover rate, most others agree. Face time is required, and if you're not working huge amounts of overtime every day, you're thought of as not being Stryker material. Even non-managerial employees often get caught up in attending 4-5 hours/day on average of meetings/training, etc. making getting a busy day's work done that much more challenging. It's a dog-eat-dog environment and the Gallop poll, which tries to bring in worker clones, makes for a boring atmosphere with mainly Type-A personalities (to an arrogant extreme) that don't work well together. There is no interest in creating any type of a diverse atmosphere where people with different ways of approaching ideas/problems can work together. Unless you're one of those people that actually enjoys the type of atmosphere I just described, do not consider applying because you will be miserable working there.

    Advice to Management

    Show a true concern for employees having some semblance of a work/life balance, make sure lower managers aren't abusing their positions of power by treating their subordinates with complete disrespect. Make (and enforce) a statement that yelling/abusive language is not a tolerated form of discipline.
