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

    Pros

    My last post was in January of 2015, after I had been an employee for six months. I have now celebrated my three year anniversary with Stryker which inspired me to revisit that post and share this update.
    Under "Pros" in 2015 I called out the culture of "bright driven" people. Now as then, I see this as a significant factor in making Stryker a "great place". Absolutely no regrets in joining Stryker, and I continue to encourage friends, family, and former colleagues to join.

    Cons

    Under "Cons" I pointed to the challenges of dealing with the silos in process and technology created by Stryker's growth through acquisition. Stryker Leadership has been addressing this directly and aggressively, and have implemented initiatives that will dramatically improve the way we operate and the ease with which our customers do business with us. Exciting times.

    Advice to Management

    My "Advice to Management" in 2015 was to pay attention and give voice to Stryker's OUS (Outside US) businesses and people. Since then, Stryker has implemented its "Transatlantic Operating Model" which has successfully strengthened the communication and collaboration among groups in our various countries.

    I have been working at Stryker full-time

    Pros

    Great people, fast moving growth oriented company

    Cons

    Very poor vacation policy. Came into the company at 38, and only could get 3-weeks vacation. It takes 10 years until you can get the 4th week. Basically I will be almost 50 when I finally get to have a 4th week of vacation...almost retired!

    Advice to Management

    Offer better vacation, or at least an option or way to pay for time. Many people work 50+ hour weeks, travel tons for their jobs, but the company does not give them time back. A big deterrent to those make mid-career moves to Stryker- I almost did not accept my offer based on this alone (vacation benefits)
