Company Culture

The Mission Statement isn't just words on the wall. Stryker employees really walk-the-walk in making sure that "Together with our customers, we are driven to make healthcare better."

Support from management

Management is always available and welcomes employee input.

Teamwork

We win together and share the celebration.

Freedom to work independently

Be careful here, if you see a problem, you will probably own the solution.

Internal Communication

Very open and transparent.

Gender Equality

Stryker really gets this right. I've never seen an organization more committed.

Attitude towards older colleagues

I have never seen anything that even hints at a negative bias. And I'm and expert in this area.

Career Development

Paid training and education plans, formal development plans, and a culture of career mobility and advancement means the sky is the limit.

Office / Work Environment

Lots of "open-plan" which is not my personal favorite. But facilities are comfortable with many amenities: Cafe, gym, recreation room, wakling trails....

Environmental Friendliness

Many locations are LEED certified. Keeping used medical devices out of the landfill is part of Stryker's business model.

Work-Life Balance

Lots of flexibility to accomodate family needs.

Company Image

There is great pride in contributing to the life changing and life saving products we make, and the overwhelming committment to quality.

Challenging Work

Challenging and rewarding. With lots of people around you to make sure you succeed.

Inclusive / Diverse

Stryker really gets this right. I've never seen an organization more committed.

Suggestions for improvement

  • There should be specific policies regarding job descriptions, better control of overtime, and programs to grow and develop the employees. Employees should be able to feel comfortable in their jobs and not be afraid.

What I like about the company

The only good things I can say is the pay is competitive and I can work from home from time to time. The location is excellent, and I travel to alot of places to set up meetings.

What I dislike about the company

I disapprove of the way I am treated by my manager. I always feel like he is trying to find an excuse to fire me, instead of telling me that I am doing a good job. It's maddening and depressing. A good manager could inspire the employees to work harder, better. They really need to control management better in regard to how the employees are treated and developed.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The only improvement that is needed, which may have been addressed with the building of a new building, is disability accessibility. Right now, not all doors can be opened easily if help is needed, main doors, yes, but not necessarily interior doors.

What I like about the company

Stryker spends much energy, time, and resourcing to take care of the employees, customers and community. There is an amazing program that Stryker does annually with Operation Smile. They sponsor employees to go on a mission with the Operational Smile team for a week where children with cleft palettes have corrective surgery in countries that healthcare is un-affordable or inaccessible. They also donate equipment to help make the surgeries possible and help raise funds throughout the year to help support the organization on their missions. One of my favorite things the company does that helps it's employees, it's social responsibility, and children that would otherwise not have the ability to correct this birth defect.

What I dislike about the company

Diversity. Top leadership levels there is really a lack of race and gender diversity that could be more inclusive and Stryker would benefit from more diverse leadership.

Suggestions for improvement

  • We have a big problem with bringing in good temps. Compared to other similar companies in the area we have a pretty low starting pay and I think that if we raised the wages it would attract better employees and make the entire place a better place to work.

What I like about the company

The best thing is definitely the culture. I have made some great friends at work that I know will be in my life for a long time. They do their best to bring people in that are going to make it a great place to work.

What I dislike about the company

Mandatory overtime when we need to hit numbers. Keeping people away from their families is not okay. Work does not come first and sometimes they expect you to put it first.

Company Culture

This company was one time amazing. They had a great culture, great morale. When executive staff was changed over, the company showed less interest in the employees and sacrificed employees for money.

Support from management

My management was amazing.

Teamwork

This was a struggle as employees specialized in their own areas but we did our best and management seemed to encourage working together

Freedom to work independently

Depending on the direct manager. The last manager I had was amazing. Best boss I ever had.

Internal Communication

Terrible. Planned a large layoff for 'restructuring' which really meant, lay off employees and make the rest of them absorb the work.

Gender Equality

Even had a womens group but there was still more male executives/upper management

Attitude towards older colleagues

Always had ewual treatment

Career Development

There were many prospects for growth but there was also a lot of 'who you know' not equal treatment

Overall compensation for your work

It was, a month before my layoff

Office / Work Environment

Besides temperature control, they were very accommodating.

Environmental Friendliness

Had recycling but saw a LOT of waste. Including money on frivolous spending with sales and marketing but kept other departments on a budget that wasn't ideal for them to perform their work in the best manner

Work-Life Balance

Very flexible most of the time unless HR decided to change the rules with no explanation

Company Image

I was proud when I worked there but the last 2 years it went downhill fast. Not for just me but as a division entirely, it was not moving forward with the employees well being

Job Security

No, I was laid off with no warning, abruptly, direct management wasn't even aware the layoffs were going to occur.

Handicapped Accessibility

Very accommodating and had elevators for handicap as well

Workplace Safety

Always provided training on a regular basis

Challenging Work

Pretty challenging but it was satisfying.

Inclusive / Diverse

Had groups created to embrace diversity

Suggestions for improvement

  • Don't layoff employees that were great contributors. Don't give them 2 days notice to find another job in the company. Destroying livelihood for many people. The employees that remain will never feel the same about the company. I have spoke with MANY

What I like about the company

I had a manager that wanted to see me thrive and always championed for me and my development. I could not say enough positive about this manager. I met many people and this was my home away from home. The benefits were great, at the time.

What I dislike about the company

Stop taking away perks for employees. Don't make abrupt changes without even knowing what the employees contribute to the company. Newer executives are so far removed from employees it has hurt the morale and trust for employees.
