    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.

    They actually listen to feedback, its an organizational imperative

    The stomp-em-in-the-dirt sales atmosphere can be overwhelming for someone from a technical or non-sales background

    Keep doing what you're doing, I like those surprise deposits in my 401K

    I have been working at Stryker full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The title to this review is one of Stryker's 4 core values. I can attest to the legitimacy of this claim in now having completed my first full year of employment with the corporation. From my first day until this current point in time I have grown in both my professional and personal life as a direct response to the engagements I have participated in while at Stryker.

    Cons

    Corporate headquarters are located in Kalamazoo, MI. Individuals looking for the hustle and bustle of a major city will not find such a lifestyle in Kalamazoo.

    I have been working at Stryker full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Work Culture. Work-Life balance is best I've ever experienced. We have a lot of fun at work, but get a lot done! Everyone I work with is highly driven and motivated to accomplish minute-to-minute, day-to-day, week-to-week, and month-to-month goals. I have never felt more supported by and protected by management than at Stryker. I find everyone is very respectful and professional. Gossip is almost non-existent and is dealt with immediately when it crops up. Everyone is very smart and talented at what they do. Small wins occur and are celebrated like they were big wins more often than anywhere I've been. Big wins are a blow out party! Stryker rewards with great bonuses and extras weeks of days! Its just a great company! I cant say enough good about it!

    Cons

    These can be pros or cons depending on how you look at them: Highly motivated and competitive culture. If you don't feel like you can work hard towards difficult goals, it can be a struggle to perform. People can seem stuck-up. Stryker is filled with strong personalities. Stryker has a high accountability culture. So you are held to what you say you will do. You must perform! It can feel a little "crack-the whip" style of work. Not for the predominately passive and agreeable personality. Plan on going to work everyday ready to fight, compete and negotiate your positions and decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Using the Styrker Strive health incentive as a model, I would love to see a system of reward to accommodate employee travel to other Styrker sites. With the global diversity at Stryker increasing, more employees would benefit from visiting the other sites. If there were an incentive to help with family difficulties above their normal salary, that would help facilitate better networking among the employees across the multiple sites.
