    I have been working at Stryker part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Company does a lot to nurture employees through strengths and mentors. Opportunities to get involved in the culture. Approach to interviewing/hiring means working with a lot like-minded, driven people.

    Cons

    As the Australian division of a global company, roles are primarily "business as usual" rather than R&D/innovation of med tech.

    I worked at Stryker full-time

    Pros

    Good people, good products, good intent

    Cons

    - If you don’t live in Brisbane or Sydney you are unlikely to get promoted or know what’s going on. Things are poorly communicated. - Leadership is poor and knee jerk - middle management is particularly immature - no team has appropriate resources to achieve required output. - business is too complicated for anyone to understand and as a result no one understands the right process resulting in multiple mistakes - no one gets back to you because everyone is so “busy”. It’s acceptable In this culture to not respond to colleagues. You only get responses if you get accepted into the “club” - Massive boys club - everyone is promised growth and development when joining. You’re told you have to be at least a year in role. Development is rarely talked about after that moment. You’ll only get promoted if you get accepted in the club and you NEVER challenge the status quo. Even though the business asks that you “challenge” things and pretends to recognise this.
