    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    - Competitive salaries.
    - An extremely open environment, where people from different teams all consult with one another to find the best solutions,
    - Phenomenal company resources.
    - Knowing that your work saves and improves lives.

    Cons

    - It is expected that you work overtime with moderate frequency
    - Not always room for career growth - Stryker takes on incredibly talented people, and there are only so many management positions.
    - HR seems a little sneaky.

    Advice to Management

    Create more transparency within the company. Give non-sales employees more recognition for doing a good job - namely, the engineer who actually develop the products. I knew a man with twenty tiny plaques around his desk for his different patents and devices of his, but he never received any notable recognition other than that.
