    I worked at Stryker

    Pros

    - Lots of young people, new ideas - Office is pretty nice (free coffee, gym on site) - Good name on resume - Good way for a new grad to get some experience.

    Cons

    - Many people are overworked. The expectation is that you work until you complete your over-matched workload. Those who care about their work, have almost no work/ life balance. - Leadership is out to lunch. Complete leadership turnover in only a few years. - Too much middle management that can't get things right. Same people kicking around, not fixing problems. - Unless you are in sales, you will be underpaid for you role. Fine for a new grad that needs experience but once you're an expert in your role, it's time to look elsewhere. - Leadership will pick "pets" and favourites for all promotions and awards. - Way too many people in HR for the size of the organization. Maybe send one of them to help out one of the teams desperate for help? - Office culture is cult-like with a good mix of rumour mongering thrown in - New international model will keep putting more jobs at risk - Anonymous complaints to HR are not anonymous. Be ready for backlash from your boss! - People will wax romantic about the "old Stryker" and how great it used to be. Well, it's not anymore, time for some change! - Watch out for the overly positive reviews. Those were posted by HR.

    I worked at Stryker

    Pros

    Pay is upper end though not tops. Anyone hired after the sweeping changes of 2012 are decent people. A great place to get experience for your next great job.

    Cons

    A revolving door in the are I worked in as well as in accounting and warehouse. No work/life balance. There is talk of it and a salary but in private meetings with your manager it is implicit that working whatever hours is required. Rarely people on maternity leave are replaced putting strain on the remaining workers. Most Managers are holdovers from the sweeping changes of 2012 and still live in the past. \there is great confusion to almost the point of fraud on inventories much of it does not exist. .

    I have been working at Stryker for less than a year

    Pros

    The company is filled with people who are willing to help and teach you in order for you to be successful as they genuinely want you to succeed and grow. There is always a new challenge or obstacle which gives you the opportunity to grow and develop your skills. The career opportunities are endless, and the company encourages you to explore new career paths. Hard work and effort don't go unnoticed.

    Cons

    Work/life balance can suffer if you don't manage it properly, but that is more on the individual as management and co-workers encourage a good work/life balance.
