I have been working at Stryker (More than a year)

Pros

It is in Michigan where I live. Pleasant office environment.

Cons

Horrible incompetent backstabbing management. Trivial product - hospital beds and heating pads. No technical future for engineers. Incompetent do-nothing engineering staff. They hire gobs of foreign workers who will work for cheap but who have no skill. Boss is a weak man unable to give face-to-face honest feedback or direction - has to communicate only through formal memos. Gallup driven personality cult.

Advice to Management

Get rid of Gallup. Focus on hiring real engineers, not suck ups. It is not the great place to work that you all think it is. The SWEET team is a sucking blach hole of mismanagement. It shouldn't take five years to put wifi on a hospital bed, or two years to fix an air mattress. Stop outsourcning everything. Stop buying companies and then close theme down and layoff their employees.

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

    Pros

    Stryker culture is strong. Globalization of management is making this site stronger.

    Cons

    There is one HR manager for this site, which is sad, because of she had any competition, it would be known how bad she is to her boss. She is the worst HR person I have ever heard of; she brings drama to the organization, she says bad things about managers, and she creates a culture of hostility.

    Advice to Management

    Fire your one HR manager and allow someone who understands Stryker culture to take her spot.
