    Pros

    Stryker is a great company to work for. Stay clear of this reprocessing division. All of the other divisions are better than this bush league division.

    Cons

    Stay away from SSS..you can make more money at Denny's. Also it's flat out disgusting. 10+ hours a day picking up used devices for pennies..literally pennies!

    Advice to Management

    Dump all of the Ascent losers before its too late.

    I worked at Stryker full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    great people, nice to work from home, no annoying paperwork, very fulfilling job

    Cons

    100% commission means a lot of turnover but also high reward for those who stay. Have to make time for your own work/life balance or you will only work

    They are ethical and fair. They do a terrific job of hiring talent, and you'll be surrounded by intelligent, ambitious people.
