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

    Pros

    Big company, lots of money, lots of products, well known in hospital and pre-hospital in the US

    Cons

    They are old school with the benefits, and they do not pay enough base salary to live in the Northwest. It takes forever for them to make a change. Medical benefits cost the employee way too much.

    Advice to Management

    great sales people should be compensated in a great way. No caps on commission, and higher base salaries.

    Pros

    Many options for education and advancement if you put your mind to it. Great compensation. Some of the most compassionate and hard working people I've ever had the pleasure to work with.

    Political. As long as you know how to play the game you'll be extremely successful within this organization. Upper management likes to play the power card.

    I worked at Stryker (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    First in class products and tremendous financial opportunity for those that work well within an ultra high performance culture. Opportunity to make an elite level income within medical device.

    Cons

    Generally, you're only as good as the current year within which you are working. Making quota is everything and is required every year in order to keep your job. Prepare for territory cuts, but this is not unusual for device companies.

    Advice to Management

    Keep first in class products in the pipeline. Continue to support the field like you have. Continue to have performance/nonperformance transparent to the field. The good ones will stay, the subperformers will manage themselves out.
