    O.K. company but would not work there again.

    Finance Manager (Former Employee)
    Mahwah, NJ

    ProsCompany has great benefits and lots of opportunity to promote if you are male and willing to relocate to Kalamazoo, MI.

    ConsCompany is a very male dominated culture where the good ol' boys club exist and promotes heavily from within that club. Company is still very behind the times when it comes to work/life balance. They tell you that working from home is allowed but it is heavily frowned upon.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo more to promote individuals that are qualified and have potential rather than individuals that play the politics game.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A company not for everybody

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat area to live in. Low living cost. Benefits are ok.

    ConsIf you will not be able to get along your team members, the chances of career growth are very slim. Very opinionated people. Your performance depends upon customer service that you can be percieved of.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Company

    Business Analyst (Current Employee)
    Portage, MI

    ProsConstant support for growth and development opportunities. High level of drive in all co-workers provides a great working environment.

    ConsAt the corporate level, you are working with many disparate divisions all with different systems, processes and mindsets. It's pretty frustrating sometimes putting such dissimilar data together.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFix your systems. A company as large as Stryker shouldn't be using so many different systems, many of them designed for companies much much smaller.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place, great people

    Sales Account Manager (Former Employee)
    Chicago, IL

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

    Cons100% 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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good company, helpful coworkers, good atmosphere

    Specialty Instruments (Former Employee)
    Mahwah, NJ

    ProsIt's a large company and allows you to really see all aspects that go into each product. If you have an interest in learning more about something, there's always someone that's willing to take time out to show you.

    ConsThe HR department is terrible. They are always late and/or don't do things in a timely manner. I'm fairly certain there's a high turnover rate too.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Excellent Experience Overall

    Account Manager (Current Employee)
    Durham, NC

    ProsAdvancement opportunities, strong internal support, great sales training, and awesome products to sell.

    ConsRequired 20% growth year over year. This can be tough especially in our current economic situation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep pushing money into R and D. Also continue to make strategic acquisitions to help push the company to new sales opportunities.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
