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

    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

    They have an engaged workforce and hire highly talented employees. (of course this also depends on the team you are a member of)

    Cons

    The silo divisional structure creates a challenging work environment. They are starting down the path of consolidation but every new employee's first question is how can I see XXX as a consolidated view.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consolidate reporting for advanced customer analytics

    I have been working at Stryker part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The managers are amazing. I am currently working for the best boss I have ever had! Everyone is extremely accommodating for personalized schedules. I work part-time and even remotely one day a week. I love being able to have a career job and spend more time with my son!

    Cons

    There are a lot of trainings/policies that come from the corporate level that seem repetitive to one's I have already received at the divisional level. Also, there are a lot of contractors employed by Stryker and that can negatively affect the culture because they do not get to be a part of all the extra perks for being a Stryker employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to think flexible about employee roles and work schedules. The more employees are allowed to set their own work hours, the more motivated they will be when they are working.

    Pros

    There is a nice culture; people are all working for the same (commited) goal and Stryker give it's employees a nice clear view of where it stands for.

    There is not enough eye for talent and job oppertunities are easily given to the ones close to the fire.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look into the company and ask people if they think that they are ready for new challange, so that they can develop personally.
