    I worked at Stryker full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very dynamic, engaging culture. Decentralized, with each BU / region/ country having the autonomy to set the course according to the local business needs while aligning to the overall global strategy

    Cons

    US centric, less of a learning organization in spite of talent focus in recruiting & selection. Lacks defined formal career paths; lots of focus - tools, programs, exposure, visibility on Talent deemed High Potentials - however little focus on the development of the vast majority. Overall HR strategy in its infancy. Turnover high in pockets of the organization outside of US

    Advice to Management

    Take the time & effort to develop your people

    I have been working at Stryker full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Hard working professionals that win the right way. This is the best company in medical technology. It is a engaging, inclusive, and fast paced environment. The products truly make a difference to patients and their value propositions are relevant to healthcare providers. I do believe the best is still yet to come.

    Cons

    Pay is fair and equitable but the benefits are only average. Also the regulatory and compliance groups have gained perhaps too much power. The controls are necessary today but we have hired so many people in these positions that they at time look for problems that may not exist or violate our core values. I would rather lean towards too conservative vs. too loose but people should know that these groups are stronger at Stryker than at other organizations and at times this can be unnecessarily disruptive to business.

    Advice to Management

    Offer a better stock purchase plan for all employees. Specifically offer a greater discount off of fair market value price. This will build a greater ownership culture from all levels of the organization.
