I worked at Stryker full-time (More than a year)

Pros

You will be asked to do an extraordinary amount of work and to travel frequently, so there's a great opportunity to learn if you have little experience.

Cons

You will be asked to do an extraordinary amount of work...but you won't be well-compensated for it. If you're going to make large personal sacrifices for mediocre compensation in one of the most expensive areas in the world, work for a smaller company that will provide some equity upside. Most senior managers do not live in California. That should speak volumes. No communication between upper management and even senior level functional areas. Dysfunctional, deep-seeded animosity between functional groups. Marketing is sales support, not product management. Very high turnover in marketing and engineering.

    I have been working at Stryker full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Stryker has great products in a a thriving industry. They put in lots of ressources for product developments and design transfers.

    Cons

    With the tremendous growth the company had, bureaucracy has become a huge problem. Decisions take for ever and sometimes you don't even know who to contact to get an answer.

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

    Pros

    Great like minded, goal oriented, hard working people. Environment of excellence. You will learn a ton. Great benefits. Very diverse work force. The new employees are typically the cream of the crop and eager to get to work.

    Cons

    The work load is tremendous and pressure to succeed exceptionally high. Once in management it's more about who you know than what you know that gets you advanced. Someone has to take the blame for not achieving excellence and it is often assigned to the middle manager associated with a project rather than the entrenched leader.

    Advice to Management

    Spend a little less time focused on the numbers for corporate and a little more time on the processes.
