Communications Technician (Former Employee) – Fairfax, Virginia – January 29, 2015
Great place to work and consistency of building business was a must. The employees where amazing and all strived for the same end result. Sales was also a major part of the job and keeping the customer number one was the most important objective.
Intern (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – May 17, 2018
Every day I was learning something new and people included in projects that other employees were doing even as an intern. It was great to see myself along with others grow as they worked there every day.
This review is really only for people that work in the field and travel. Stryker is good to have on your resume but not great for anything more than very basic technical skills. Food allowance is good if you only eat twice a day. Your tools will weight 65+ lbs and you need to travel/fly to every job with most of them. Installs are the most unorganized I have seen with 10+ years of experience in field service. 1/3 of your day will consist of looking for and ordering missing parts and going back to previously installed areas to install parts you didn’t receive on time. 2/3 will be installing equipment. There is also a double standard between policy/training and what you are asked to do when in the field. Not all but it seems as most of the management have only ever been with Stryker in a professional environment and you can tell. The benefits are average for the industry. The 401k looks good on paper but is only matched at the end of the year and has other requirements. I would not recommend working in the field with Stryker but I would if you are looking at in house positions.
A culture of an acquired site and the opposite of the real Stryker culture
Professional (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – May 14, 2018
Managers that are in the job for more than ten years with an outdated management style that will micromanage you and not give you the opportunity to learn and develop. A business with a military management and communication style while management is absent and all the time sitting in their offices or in long meetings. If you want to just be a minion and do what the manager tells you while getting a pay check, then this is the place for you. If you want to grow, develop, and learn then you need to find a different company. If you want to promote, you need to move to a different site and relocate as this site management promotes "yes" people and their friends and acquaintances.
Good benefits, time off, and relatively flexible work
Contractor/ fabricator (Former Employee) – Portage, MI – May 14, 2018
Stryker is hands down the best company yo work for your not just a number to them. When your contributing to the business as far as quality parts they return the favor with great hospitality and respect and eknowledgement.
Field Marketing Manager (Former Employee) – Mahwah, NJ – May 8, 2018
Stryker is very demanding of its employees and it holds them to a very high standard. If that is an environment that you can thrive in, there is no better place to work. Awesome people, products, management.
Mako Product Specialist (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – April 26, 2018
Wake up early, get the hospital and prep for 2-4 cases for the day. Co-workers were great, still great friends. Most difficult part of the job is the driving to each location and carrying all the surgical equipment in your car.
Excelente ambiente de trabajo, todo realizado con profesionalismo
AYUDANTE DE PERITO ELECTRISISTA (Former Employee) – Arroyo, PR – April 12, 2018
La mayoría de los empleados tienen una evaluación anual de trabajo con su director. La capacidad de dar una crítica constructiva es un "arte" y está entre la delgada línea de decirle a un empleado que su rendimiento ha de mejorar y motivarlo para el futuro
Account Representative (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – April 9, 2018
During my 4 years with Stryker I had 3 sales managers. The first 2 were high quality, hard working, and positive individuals who valued their team and helped us succeed in a very competitive environment. One of the best experiences was working with a true full commission sales incentive plan with no ceiling. The job was physical due to the constant packing and unpacking of video components along with a 300 lb video tower/cart. Winning deals was never more enjoyable than it was with Stryker!
Great benefits, sales awards, and commission structure
Analyst (Current Employee) – Portage, MI – April 8, 2018
Honestly few complaints here. Technology is pretty outdated, but they are getting up to speed. The sales teams are treated like gold. The area is great for families, but the Michigan weather is pretty awful.
