    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.

    Former Employee - Manager  in  New Delhi (India)
    Former Employee - Manager in New Delhi (India)

    Pros

    Good salary ... HR will offer you anything when they need you. Work and life balance - HR tries to hire the best talent available in the market but hiring managers are not sure what work to be given to the best hires to keep them busy.

    Cons

    HR will take 4-6 months to hire the best talent and then in next 6 months the best talent either leaves or asked to leave. TRULY AMAZING WORK CULTURE !

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clearing a Gallup interview does not mean that an employee can perform all the tasks imagined by his manager (when he himself does not know how to do or get it done).

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