    I have been working at Stryker full-time

    Pros

    Conveniently placed office near restaurants
    Internal gym
    Clean offices

    Cons

    Sydney office is a boys club unfortunately where 'anything but' is often excluded. Unfortunately also heard many derogatory comments about others based on who they are - very unprofessional.
    Heard manager tell another staff member publicly that 'you dont fit in here at Stryker'
    Success often depends on how good you are on the football field...just ridiculous.
    Training is poor and my manager would take credit for others work and not waste any time apportioning blame.
    Behaviour is frequently unprofessional.
    A lot of favouratism is shown towards the people with the biggest biceps.
    Turnover is extremely high with extremely poor morale.
    Quite common to see people not work out because of poor guidance and communication - also a culture that allows managers to blame their new starters for 'not being right for Stryker when in fact the manager isnt doing the right thing.
    Unfortunately had something said by my manager (will not share as it is personal and will identify me) which was the most unprofessional - and insulting thing I have ever heard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My team has extremely poor morale - rather than band aid solutions you should consider what is causing this from a human resources perspective and stop showing favouratism to people who are trouble makers - there is so much unhappiness because some people are getting away with very unprofessional behaviour that is not appropriate to a modern workforce. Remember that trouble makers cost you a lot of money and that poor reputation in local market follows.

    Pros

    Plenty of learning opportunities, good place to gain experience in as many areas as you're willing to learn.

    Cons

    Not immune to average workplace issues. Despite the emphasis on culture, you'll still run into common issues that are present in just about any work environment.

    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.
