    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Gurgaon, Haryana (India)
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Gurgaon, Haryana (India)

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits are good

    Cons

    There are many cons in the way managers handle their employee.
    Partiality and favouritism is the only way for career growth.
    When someone leave, managers will tell others that the person was incapable of doing work and was feeling insecure even if he was a great resource.
    Manager or senior people in team may feel offended if you do not wish them "Good Morning"(sic).
    Your job is always at risk and your position can close anytime.
    No focus on career path.
    The best excuse for anything is "BUDGET IS TIGHT". (It remains TIGHT through out the year but managers some how get to LOOSEN it for their own use)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat everyone equal.

    Current Employee - Senior Consultant in Gurgaon, Haryana (India)

    Pros

    Good Salary, Free Lunch, Telephone Reimbursement over and above your CTC.

    Cons

    1. You have to be part of certain lobby to get visibility
    2. For IT employees, if you want to remain developer throughout your career, join Stryker
    3. No Long Term Onsite since Stryker India works exactly like contractors to Stryker Global.
    4. Recently they fired 5 people without giving any reasons. The decision was taken because business did not want the specific technology and wanted to go with another one. So from Stryker India, people were fired and currently these people are on 4 months notice and this created panic through out the organization.
    5. High favouritism and Politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. If you have NO WILL to run Stryker India (SGTC), Please DO NOT hire people in India.
    2. Stryker India needs to have its own leadership team and should not be polarized towards certain people only.

    Pros

    Work Life Balance
    Relax and Enjoy

    Cons

    Probably you will end up what you know about your work.
    Too much reliability on Manager and they really don't deserve it.
    Poor HR Department. They really don't know the policies and can't even make you understand one.
    Don't go for if you are just looking to enter in a branded company.
    Nothing like Fortune 500 company.
    No offshore if you are in IT.
    IT is considered as just another department.
    Useless objectives to get your own money blocked in Bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    360* review should be there.
    People to People policies should be stopped.
    CEO said he don't know about IT and he doesn't care about it.

    Good company, good facilities, okay learning, no work, poor managers (especially cross country)

    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Business Analyst  in  Gurgaon, Haryana (India)
    Former Employee - Business Analyst in Gurgaon, Haryana (India)

    Pros

    - Good salary band - depends on negotiation
    - Good perks and facilities
    - Good learning via trainings
    - Good work life balance
    - No complexity in monetary matters
    - Industry standard increments (avg double digits)

    Cons

    - Very less scope of work (Potentially you will forget, what you already know)
    - Some cross country managers are poor managers as they don't understand the cultural difference and the ground reality. They do not have capabilities to get proper work for their subordinates and they expect their subordinates to work. What will they work. Why shall a Software engineer do the work of quant analyst, why a BA does the work of Sales person? Is it some kind of joke?
    - India HR is not transparent and are not qualified/ experienced enough to manage HR roles of a Fortune 500 organization
    - No opportunity of long term overseas assignment
    - Stringent on promotions based on years of experience

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - For hybrid model, some training on each geography's culture and work style is required
    - Reanalyze the work within the organization and give the right work to right people. A BA by experience and choice will never like to do sales
    - Improve India HR team's competency please
