        Business Outlook


        - Offered good pay, good secondary compensation, and good benefits - Middle and low level management were decent - Culture was accepting of work-life balance needs - Stryker's hiring process brought in positive and effective teammates - Seems the organization from top to bottom took consistent action to make long-term improvements, even if priorities are different between groups and different levels of the hierarchy.


        - Working in or around production was a high pressure environment. - Middle management seemed disempowered to drive site-specific long-term improvements. - The products and their production systems at my site at had accrued significant and costly technical debt from poor engineering in the past. Middle management only took concerns surrounding this situation seriously when conveyed by the right people. - Lack of vertical mobility and growth opportunities for technical staff outside of a tuition reimbursement program. - Consistently heard about project management faux pas related to new product development, which wouldn't have been any of my business except it could create even more technical debt.

      I just got an email from Norton that someone ran a reputation report on me. I didn’t run it. I just finished a second round interview yesterday. Do you think it’s HR doing due diligence or a scammer? Is running reputation reports common practice?

      Interviewed with a company last week and it seemed to be really be going well. Followed up today since it's been a week and the recruiter said she received really positive feedback about me from the hiring managers. She said she should have more info for me in the next few days and then asked me to formally apply (the recruiter found me on LinkedIn so I hadn't actually applied). Is it safe to assume I'll likely be getting an offer soon?
