    Pros

    Great place to work with great people

    Cons

    Managers need to learn there employees jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop listening to what other people say about somebody, look into the situation yourself. Stop promoting people that should have been fired for false filling documents.

    I have been working at Stryker full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    CEO has vision and leadership. Stryker culture is to hire the best talent, then position them to utilize their natural strengths.

    Cons

    Age bias. There is an over-appreciation of young people with potential versus experienced people who have demonstrated capability. As a result, there are managers in positions they cannot perform, causing frustration with those who work for them and for their qualified peers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a value proposition for a workforce that includes people older than 40.

    Pros

    They have created a culture where a work/life balance is extremely important. It's a competitve environment that keeps things fresh and interesting.

    Cons

    This place can be a con only if you are afraid of a challenge, as well as competing with your co-workers. It's friendly competition, but some people cannot handle it.

    I worked at Stryker full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    A very little paycheck each week. Work experience, clocking out, lunch time, some coworkers, and that is about it.

    Cons

    If you start off as a temp. Be very prepared for low wages and no benefits for a very long time. Depending on what the "official headcount" is for your department. You can be a temp from 8 months to 5 years. That means no pay raises, paid vacation, no insurance, or any other benefits. Stryker does not value their temp employees nor their regular employees all that well. They only think that people with higher education are only ones with a brain. 90% of upper and mid management are very arrogant. They value a 4 to 6 year degree more with no experience than those with many years of work experience. They have a high turnover rate due to lower management pointing fingers. This is causing the many quality issues they are having. Another reason they have a high turnover rate is the low pay among the temp employees. It is a shame that a janitorial job with a different company pays $2.00 more than the 1st shift workers get at SSS in Lakeland, FL. There is also a lot of favoritism that goes around. Do yourself a favor. If you see Kelly Services with job postings for a medical company. Just ignore it unless you truly need a job at the time, until you find something better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why bother giving advice. Just look at yourself and attitude. Be prepared for a lot of lawsuits because of the quality issues you are having.
