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

    Pros

    The people!
    Health Benefits
    Value the company brings to its customers
    Spirit of innovation
    Focus on Engagement (but actual focus - not just talk about it)

    I've never felt so at home at a job before. The Strengths based approach to hiring and development makes for a fun results driven workplace. The teams that lead and drive this business forward are some of the best I've seen.

    Cons

    Not much to say about cons :-) I have been with the company for 3 years and have had amazing opportunities to learn and grow. At times the focus on results can be daunting but once you realize that you have a team around you that can and does help you get through it.

    Pros

    Good people, great benefits and lots of opportunities to do cool stuff. If I could do it again, I would read first break all the rules book and then interview.

    Cons

    Once you leave, there is no going back. They have a no rehire policy. If you really want to leave, be aware that they have a strict no rehire policy.

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

    Pros

    Very dynamic, engaging culture. Decentralized, with each BU / region/ country having the autonomy to set the course according to the local business needs while aligning to the overall global strategy

    Cons

    US centric, less of a learning organization in spite of talent focus in recruiting & selection. Lacks defined formal career paths; lots of focus - tools, programs, exposure, visibility on Talent deemed High Potentials - however little focus on the development of the vast majority. Overall HR strategy in its infancy. Turnover high in pockets of the organization outside of US

    Advice to Management

    Take the time & effort to develop your people

    I have been working at Stryker full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Hard working professionals that win the right way. This is the best company in medical technology. It is a engaging, inclusive, and fast paced environment. The products truly make a difference to patients and their value propositions are relevant to healthcare providers. I do believe the best is still yet to come.

    Cons

    Pay is fair and equitable but the benefits are only average. Also the regulatory and compliance groups have gained perhaps too much power. The controls are necessary today but we have hired so many people in these positions that they at time look for problems that may not exist or violate our core values. I would rather lean towards too conservative vs. too loose but people should know that these groups are stronger at Stryker than at other organizations and at times this can be unnecessarily disruptive to business.

    Advice to Management

    Offer a better stock purchase plan for all employees. Specifically offer a greater discount off of fair market value price. This will build a greater ownership culture from all levels of the organization.

    Pros

    Amazing Leaders that care about their people. Stryker uses Gallup to make sure we are paying attention to engagement and strong leadership

    Cons

    Benefit could be better. They are good but not as good as they could be. They are working on it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focus on the people at all levels.
