    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.
