    Stryker is an extremely rewarding place to work; relationships matter, which promotes a very positive work environment;

    Operations Leader (Current Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsStryker is a focused growth firm that is helping to improve quality of life for patients worldwide. Stryker values employee development and has evolved formal processes for acting on employee feedback.

    ConsThe company is maturing systems to catch up with organic and acquisition growth. Must be able to navigate in situations where there is not always an established process. The upside of the firm being at this stage of development is that there are many opportunities for self-starters.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up what you are doing.
