    Pros

    Everyone who works there has a genuine passion for going above and beyond. They recruit some of the most talented individuals in the industry

    Cons

    Not the best paid in the industry and once you have reached a certain level is difficult to move up in the company as it's a fairly flat hierarchy.

    Pros

    The benefits are great and they are big on keeping talented people. Opportunity for advancement is high if you are doing well in the company.

    Cons

    Large territories are difficult. Expenses can become high and it is difficult to get reimbursed if even allowed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have enjoyed the management style. They hire motivated people and expect your to act that way. For the most part, let you run your territory.

    I worked at Stryker

    Pros

    I was an intern over the summer. The internship changed my life. It pushes you and helps you grow. They really care about the internship program and you can set up meetings with anyone in the building, including the president of the division. You are set up with a mentor and manager and given projects to be completed by the end of the internship and presented to a huge boardroom of people. They provide housing and some meal compensations for the summer and it was the best summer of my life.

    Cons

    -If you aren't self driven or high achieving and competitive, you won't like it.

    Pros

    Most employees are very focused and motivated to achieve their goals due to the great working environment.
    Expansion means that there is plenty of scope for career progression.
    Quite young and competitive work force.
    What we do helps people to live better lives.

    Cons

    Sometimes there is a lot of travel required due to Stryker being a global company with divisions spread across the world. This can also be a pro depending on your mindset.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
