    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.

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

    Pros

    Stryker empowers its Engineers. Stryker employs top talent, so there is always someone to learn from. Stryker is a very successful company with great work life balance.

    Cons

    Personalities are very similar to one another, if you don't have that personality it may be hard to feel like you fit in.

    Advice to Management

    None, I am very impressed with my experience at Stryker... my manager is the most competent manager I have ever had.

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

    Pros

    Stryker just acquired physio. General sense that things will get better. Work from home. Make my own schedule. A lot of good outlook as far as my job goes as negated by the force that plagues field service by the umbrella of upper management (DL) .

    Cons

    Upper mgmt has no concept of keeping customers happy or the time it takes to complete administration duties. Job cretiq is basically pulled from online matrix that has no real reflection of what really goes on in the day to day work environment of a field service employee that keeps customers renewing contract and staying loyal to physio. Physio will lose customers if they keep pushing customer service and their field service staff to the curb. Moral in the field is at an all time low. People leaving for better opportunities and good for them. Step it up physio. Let's get (DLs) mind set out of here. These people have given you 30 plus years and you're telling them they should aclimate. Stryker save us please.

    Advice to Management

    Let's do away with Dominic and let me work under the procare managers that the Stryker employees I meet in the field praise so much. There is a huge difference in the way the physio techs and the procare techs are treated. It's obvious from my communication with stryker guys in the field. They are happy and motivated. I would like the same.

    Pros

    I can say from years of experience and prior positions that Stryker is a Visionary not a reactive company. I did not realize the difference until I started here. Stryker is burning the pathway not trying to catch up pace setter. I am using my education and talents. And Stryker is committed to the whole community and giving back. It is a great atmosphere and I am proud to be a part of this team.

    Cons

    I didn't find Stryker 20 years ago!

    Advice to Management

    Keep caring about people and maintaining the integrity we are known for
