Pros

Positive environment, generous compensation. Impact an individual can make on the company as a whole

Cons

Benefits are good, but not great. Inter-division communication is lacking, as is communication between departments within divisions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Foster greater communication and synergies between divisions. While it's admirable the freedom with which the individual divisions can function, there needs to be some factors that foster inter-divisional synergy.

    Pros

    Industry leader in most divisions. The company- leadership and employees have a sense of strong pride in Stryker. Great resume bullet.

    Cons

    If you don't perform, you are gone within one year. Leadership expects a 20-45% growth regardless of economy or circumstances. You get it done or your gone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In my division- they have talked about getting us more products to compete w/ other companies. They started this division 3 1/2 years ago and still nothing. Yet we've had over 40% growth quota's each year. Be realistic for your employees and come thru expanding our product line up.

    Pros

    You go home every day knowing that the products you make/sell/promote are designed to help people at the lowest points in their lives, while they are sick in a hosptial. These products make patients more comfortable and can assist in the healing process. There is a lot of pride working for a company that helps others in this way.

    Cons

    Drink the Koolaid or it will be a rough experience. Stryker prides itself in "talent management" and relies heavily upon The Gallup Organization for personality profile results to determine "strengths" for each employee. The company uses this process to justify some personnel actions. Employees who question the culture may find it difficult to enjoy success and may find themselves marginalized. The company moves so quickly in the R&D process that it often violates its own New Product Development processes in favor of performance metrics. End result is poor quality and no fewer than 4 product recalls in 2008.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow down. The customers and, more importantly, the end users deserve higher quality in all product lines. First to market is not as good as best in market. Follow procedures and do not forsake them to meet metrics.
