    I have been working at Stryker full-time

    Pros

    This company has an unsurpassed culture. Very inclusive and has a wonderful work-life balance. This is a workplace where your efforts and strengths are celebrated. Leadership has great direction and very approachable. Stryker hires those with drive to do the very best and work off of unique strengths and talents. With that being said, I believe the Stryker hiring process is a very sufficient method that results in certain criteria and mentality. Overall as an employee your contributions count and hard work does not go unnoticed. I am fulfilled in my position and am given ample opportunity for growth. From the top down, the typical Stryker employee is driven to deliver quality. My spouse and I both work for the company and love working here!

    Cons

    If you are not a learner by nature, I believe it would be difficult to work here. As a new employee you are not spoon fed information, you must seek out the opportunities to learn. This is not for everyone so if you don't have the "learner" trait or aren't proactive/self-starter, you may have difficulty adjusting.

    Advice to Management

    Management does a fantastic job in creating an inclusive environment. Very knowledgeable and always approachable.

    I have been working at Stryker full-time

    Pros

    Growing company, dedicated workforce, genuine people, lots of encouragement to network, job shadow, craft your own career path. Mission driven organization that truly invests in employees. Lots of growth opportunities. Matching 401k and discretionary contribution.

    Cons

    Still adapting to the times. Lots of manual spreadsheets, need a degree to be even an entry level manager. Pay is on the low end of competitive. Tough work life balance - long hours. This is recognized however and lost managers are flexible with approving time to take care of personal things. Hard to get hired.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on employees. We are your ambassadors for better or worse. Consider hiring more perms vs Temps. Large inefficiency and lost opportunity to engage a large part of the workforce. Take cues from some of the best companies out there and look at opportunity to allow for remote working, more PTO.

    Pros

    Opens a lot of doors, great OR experience

    Cons

    It’s not glamorous. Anything ortho/trauma related and you’re working 60-80hrs a week. Huge invasion of personal life. Spend a lot of time just doing manual labor sorting screws that anyone making $8/hr could do.
