    Pros

    Most employees are highly motivated since interview process uses Gallup profiling to assess ambition. Company makes amazing products. Pay is good for entry-level employees, and benefits are excellent (e.g., 3 weeks vacation in your first year, on-site fitness center). There is opportunity for rapid promotion if you are good at your job. Company has a very youthful culture and there are no divisions between employees and managers - often people sit in same cubicle area and eat lunch with their manager.

    Cons

    Some people may not like Stryker culture. I like it but most professional employees are under age 35, and look like they came out of a J. Crew or Manolo Blahnik commercial. Also, Stryker is a classic Peter Principle organization. If you want your career to advance, you have to become a manager rather than a specialized employee. Not surprisingly, many managers are nice to their employees but lack people skills. To make it worse, managers may have 15 or more direct reports, and may have employees at multiple locations.

    Advice to Management

    Allow talented individuals to advance in their skill set (e.g., scientist, engineer) rather than having to become a manager.

    I have been working at Stryker full-time

    Pros

    Extremely strong culture. Management dedicated to taking care of employees. Great work life balance: you are expected to produce, but lots of flexibility in how you do that. Good purpose. Highly motivated co-workers throughout.

    Cons

    Certain traits are prized more than others in management roles. Management is way, way above average when it comes to creating a great place to work, but relatively weak at strategy and business decisions. For office roles, you get great quality of life, but the trade-off is lower pay than you might get elsewhere.
