    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.

    Pros

    The company culture is great and it is very easy for your voice to be heard and ideas to be put into action. It may be a Fortune 500 company but your voice carries as if it's a start-up.

    Cons

    It can be very difficult to fight for head count. Product price and sales incentives take precedence over everything.

    Advice to Management

    There is room for consolidation in the vendors the company uses to create consistency. Ideally, it would be beneficial to make in-house positions to replace vendors. It could really drive down cost (website management, collateral creation, etc.).

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

    Pros

    Cross-functional teams working together for a common goal. Everybody helps each other within the department and outside as well. Workload is high, so are the responsibilities but everybody walks around with a smile. Overall, loving the experience.

    Cons

    None that I have found so far. It's a big company so it may be difficult sometimes to understand the complete scope of the project and feel overwhelmed. It's all about open discussion and there are people to hear and consider what you are saying.
