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

    Pros

    Stryker has one of the best working atmospheres I have ever been a part of. They know how to hire the right people and the people mesh together easily and well. They understand innovation and are great at identifying upcoming medical technology to help them continue to grow on a positive direction every year. Unlimited growth potential within any of its divisions once you are in.

    Cons

    Competitive to get into and the entry level positions can be tough.

    Attracts a lot of people who are competitive and sales oriented which is great to a point. Also due to the quick nature of the business, many people are trained "trial by fire" style which can be stressful. Finally with the competitive nature comes a lot of people who work outside normal hours for better or for worse.

    CQR group leadership (director and above) lacking significantly in guidance/mentorship

    Learn how to mentor your managers to ensure they succeed. Stop focusing solely on your personal career and ensure your reports are providing the best efforts toward the company vision. Take care of them and your own career will follow.

    I worked at Stryker full-time

    Pros

    One of the best fortune 500 companies to work for in NJ. A company with a lot of room to grow and opportunities to further your education within the company. They will aid you in paying for college after becoming a full time regular employee, a probation period must be first completed to obtain this status. Salary is better than average for most positions.

    Cons

    Not located close to public transportation, it's best to have a vehicle in order to get to work. To truly advance in the company it is best to have a degree.
