    Pros

    Working for Stryker was a complete pleasure great company and great people to work with . I have always enjoyed working on a winning team.

    Cons

    I have no real cons with my experience working for Stryker . They have a great team that works together well with one goal in mind . That is to produce the best medical products and they do.

    Not a bad place to start your career, terrible place to attempt to grow.

    Pros

    Decent benifits, gives a good overall picture of industry as a whole.

    Cons

    Very little flexibility inthe work. More of a hierachical system instead of promotions based on merit. Politics rule as they do in many corporations, much of a person's success in this depend on how willing your manager is to let you try new things and how much they support your growth. Stryker is not a bad place to start a career, but long term prospects are very limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your people try new things and grow. Don't put people in a nox and limit their potential.

    I worked at Stryker

    Pros

    Nice salary and benefits. Interesting client base. Some interesting products that can make a real difference in the lives of patients.

    Cons

    The sales force drives everything. The marketing role is essentially sales support. Senior management is not built on talent but on longevity within the Stryker organization. The manufacturing is located in France which adds a great deal of complexity when it comes to getting things done on time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in some outsiders to break the politics as usual game. Allow marketing to do more than abide by all of the requests coming out of the sales force. Develop a manufacturing facility that is located in the U.S.
