    I have been working at Stryker full-time (More than 5 years)


    The culture is fantastic, very fast paced, ambitious, driven and the company is full of talented people. The focus is on talent over experience, understanding people’s individual strengths and finding ways to develop people so they are continuously challenged and can grow.


    The roles are busy and their are high expectations, however if this motivates you it is a perfect place to be given there are so many opportunities for you if you put in the effort and perform well.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do. We have excellent leadership and direction.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Stryker in October 2018.


    I was recruited by a manager at Stryker off of LinkedIn.. after a couple of phone interviews and then face to face interview I was put through Gallup personality interview. There was a lot of pressure around the Gallup interview, if you do not come back with a review showing you have the traits they're looking for - it's almost black and white that they cannot consider you any further. When I passed that, they were then trying to find the right position for me based on experience and my personal circumstances - which I found to be diligent and effective.. they really cared what role you were put into, rather than just filling a role. I interviewed with 3 managers for different divisions before finding the right path and having the final interviews with HR and the medical manager. I was also 8 months pregnant when I was recruited and they waited for me until I was finished maternity leave to start - which was also why I interviewed with a few managers trying to find a role that was best suited to what I was looking for It was a pretty intense time in my life, but worth every effort to work for such a great company!
