I have been working at Stryker full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Slackers don't last long. You can't just hide out, do the bare minimum, and expect a paycheck. The best part about this is that you can trust that your peers are going to pull their weight. Great teamwork environment. As a manager, I am judged by results. While there is pressure to perform, I am given the latitude to manage without constant second-guessing or micromanagement.

Cons

The company is really good at R&D and sales. The supply chain is stuck in the mid 90's.

Advice to Management

Consider the entire supply chain when making key decisions. We waste too much time fixing things after the contracts are signed, and not enough time getting it right in the first place.

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

    Pros

    - Competitive compensation - They pay you at market rates.

    Cons

    - A lot of politics. If you have contacts at higher level, you can get done whatever you want against HR policies as well
    - Less growth opportunities
    - No freedom to present your ideas. Management is autocratic. They dont want to listen to you. If they dont like you, your life would be made hell.
    - Wont find very highly intellectual crowd
    - HR is not strong at all. There can be cases where the policies can be ignored. Employees can not bank on HR for support at all.
    - You can work beyond your responsibilities and still not be recognized or appreciated,

    Advice to Management

    - Please consider your team members as part of your team and stop having favorites.
    - Be open to ideas from everyone and have trust in people that you yourself hire else dont hire them.
    - Give everyone a fair opportunity and dont have pre conceived notions.
    - Dont try to micro manage every employee
