Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Stryker full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Ping-Pong Tables. Really??? A bunch of Dope heads.

Cons

Manipulations, Shady financials, No new products, No vision.See the stock...

Advice to Management

This company is doing great "according to the leadership" In Reality ...no direction, no vision, no plan, back stabbing to get the next promotion, and if you are hidding all bad decisions..like invested $150M on a aquisition and after it Completely FAILED and money were lost all the employees that were part of that "sweet deal" got promoted at Director level as a "reward"..This is Stryker!

    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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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
