Neutral Outlook

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

Pros

Pay - great pay for capital sales.

Cons

Employees are a dime a dozen
Fraternity like atmosphere
Sales reps are in love with themselves
Commissions keep getting cut

Advice to Management

When you say your employees are the #1 resource, then show it. There's enough of a fraternity like atmosphere at meetings. Don't reinforce it. Change the culture of meetings from "it's a party" to actual learning and training.

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

    Pros

    -They care about employees. Lots of movement within the company. They give lots of responsibilities to their employees and there is lots of opportunities to advance.

    Cons

    -Very political company. Sometimes profits seem to be put before quality.
    -Not a lot of experience in the company. Shows sometimes in the products and decisions we make.

    Advice to Management

    We need to focus more on sending quality products out the door instead of the numbers. It's very disheartening to see some of the decisions made by upper management against our suggestions.
