    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.

    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

    Great corporate atmosphere! Majority of employees were enthused to be "part of the Stryker team."

    Cons

    The initial training, dubbed "e3's," is tedious and can be overwhelming to a new employee.

    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
