    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.

    I worked at Stryker as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Stryker is an incredible place to work. People are highly motivated and interested in what they are working on. The culture is very unique. They are focused on overall wellness, and support a good work/life balance, while still expecting a lot from their employees.

    Cons

    I absolutely loved Stryker. Working for a large company, especially one regulated by the FDA can be a bit stressful at times, however everyone at Stryker handled things well, and it rarely felt like a huge corporation.

    I have been working at Stryker full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    This is a great company to work for. In the Top 10 places to work for in the Bay Area. Lots of room to grow and if the company sees potential in you, you can job to any position you want. I went from finance to support to engineering just because someone believed in me.

    Cons

    salary is lower than other companies in this area but the work environment makes up for it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    this company has a lot of you players that work hard. Invest in your employees and they will keep giving.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, you work with your "best friends", profitable company, etc.

    Cons

    Pay is lower than expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A degree does not mean you should be a manager. Sometimes experience should compare to a degree.
    Also when someone is not recruited they can still be on the fast track to management if you give them the same opportunities.

    Pros

    Stryker has a great corporate culture that fosters growth and selects the best talent in the industry. I have never met individuals from in-house to the sales force that are more passionate about what they do. Beyond the personnel, Stryker does a fantastic job of funneling dollars back into R&D to push the market/technologies forward and continue to develop Best-in-Class products

    Cons

    I have none thus far

    Pros

    great company
    great people
    great pay and benefits

    Cons

    expected to generate revenue - period, which is clearly explained from the beginning.

    not really a negative, commission structure is solid

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    wish the order of importance was:
    1 customer
    2 employee
    3 shareholder

    instead of
    1 shareholder
    2 customer
    3 employee

    Stryker works you really hard, but for some, the work, environment, and people are addicting.

    Pros

    As an engineer, the best thing about Stryker is you can see your product from concept to implantation. You also work with great people who seem to truly care about the end product.

    Cons

    I have been told that the compensation is not as good as other places. You also tend to get caught up in work which is great sometimes, but my work/life balance isn't as good here. Part of the reason for this is bc I am challenged here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-evaluate compensation for engineers.
