Fast paced and challenging workplace
Senior Team Member (Former Employee), Hanover, MDOctober 22, 2013
Pros: great 401k
Cons: short lunch break
There was never a "typical day at work" at Stryker Orthopaedics and that is one of the reasons that I found working there so fulfilling. No two surgeries are alike, as every patient is different, so while a routine day may have consisted of scheduling and preparing equipment for surgeries, and receiving equipment back at the warehouse after surgeries, – more... this position required a great deal of flexibility and reacting to changes on a daily, if not hourly basis. My co-workers in the warehouse and our team of drivers were a close knit team, and after several years together we, many times, would think alike when dealing with changes. This position required a great deal of overtime and participation in an on-call rotation to respond to trauma surgeries and other unforeseen surgeries. Although stressful, the aspect of my job I enjoyed the most was the satisfaction of making sure that every surgery was covered, despite the, sometimes, extreme measures and hours required to do so. The hardest part of the job was usually being on call, especially those time when I would be driving home at 2:30 in the morning after responding to one call, just to have the on-call phone ring again and have to drive back to the office. But that was part of the job when I agreed to work there, so I would turn around and head back to office again. While in this position with Stryker, I learned a great deal about orthopedics and the human body. I also continually learned about Stryker products, not only the ones Stryker carried when I started there in 2004 and the new product lines that were introduced during my time there, but also about the legacy products from the past. By learning the legacy products as well, I feel I was a more productive and valuable asset to the Stryker team. – less

Good company to work for
Lead Endoscopy Technician (Former Employee), New York, NYOctober 15, 2013
Pros: flexible hours, days off, good pay.
Cons: no real room for advancement even with a college degree
Field service technicians jobs may vary from account to account, but my experience was always high demand and high volume. I worked with nurses and surgeons and provided on site technical support for endoscopy systems and instrumentation. I was promoted to a Lead position and supervised three techs at what is considered the hardest account in the country.

Great Internship & Learning Experience

Internal Audit Staff (Former Employee), Portage, MIOctober 3, 2013
Pros: health insurance is reasonable
Cons: poor communication, politics & no training
The company is heavily focused on sales. So much so that infrastructures, standards and processes have not been managed or developed properly for a company this size. Overall employees are given a lot of exposure to different areas of the company and there is very useful for someone without any experience to get involved in projects because so many – more... areas can be improved. There is no work/life balance. They mention is but they really only care about you getting results no matter how much time is needed for that to happen. – less
