I worked at Stryker full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great products, great company mission, good compensation and general benefits. Wonderful local community in Kalamazoo with excellent schools and resources for families.

Cons

Work-life balance is nonexistent -- they will tell you what you want to hear during the recruiting process but be ready to make this organization the center of your life. Regardless of your abilities, your success here is defined by who you know. An earlier review states that at Stryker, "You're great ... until you're not." Couldn't put it any better. Upset the wrong person and you are done.

Advice to Management

Invest in infrastructure. Recognize that people often have families. Improve your communications -- and LISTEN to your employees.

    Stryker is a strong company with many divisions and products. Would have enjoyed being a direct employee instead of stuck in a distributor

    Distributor RM Medical is a nightmare
    -commissions always changing
    -reps calling on surgeons behind each other back
    -terrible reputation around town. everyone knows the owners and cannot trust them!!
    Stryker Spine needs to be more innovative
