    Stryker fired employees recently who were awarded with highly effective employees ratings - JOIN if you want to still

    Senior Consultant (Current Employee) Gurgaon, Haryana

    ProsGood Salary, Free Lunch, Telephone Reimbursement over and above your CTC.

    Cons1. You have to be part of certain lobby to get visibility
    2. For IT employees, if you want to remain developer throughout your career, join Stryker
    3. No Long Term Onsite since Stryker India works exactly like contractors to Stryker Global.
    4. Recently they fired 5 people without giving any reasons. The decision was taken because business did not want the specific technology and wanted to go with another one. So from Stryker India, people were fired and currently these people are on 4 months notice and this created panic through out the organization.
    5. High favouritism and Politics.

    Advice to Senior Management1. If you have NO WILL to run Stryker India (SGTC), Please DO NOT hire people in India.
    2. Stryker India needs to have its own leadership team and should not be polarized towards certain people only.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Join Stryker only if you want to ruin your career !

    Manager (Former Employee) New Delhi

    ProsGood salary ... HR will offer you anything when they need you. Work and life balance - HR tries to hire the best talent available in the market but hiring managers are not sure what work to be given to the best hires to keep them busy.

    ConsHR will take 4-6 months to hire the best talent and then in next 6 months the best talent either leaves or asked to leave. TRULY AMAZING WORK CULTURE !

    Advice to Senior ManagementClearing a Gallup interview does not mean that an employee can perform all the tasks imagined by his manager (when he himself does not know how to do or get it done).

    Work life balance, poor learning, poor management

    Analyst (Current Employee) Gurgaon, Haryana

    ProsWork Life Balance
    Relax and Enjoy

    ConsProbably you will end up what you know about your work.
    Too much reliability on Manager and they really don't deserve it.
    Poor HR Department. They really don't know the policies and can't even make you understand one.
    Don't go for if you are just looking to enter in a branded company.
    Nothing like Fortune 500 company.
    No offshore if you are in IT.
    IT is considered as just another department.
    Useless objectives to get your own money blocked in Bonus.

    Advice to Senior Management360* review should be there.
    People to People policies should be stopped.
    CEO said he don't know about IT and he doesn't care about it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good company, good facilities, okay learning, no work, poor managers (especially cross country)

    Business Analyst (Former Employee) Gurgaon, Haryana

    Pros- Good salary band - depends on negotiation
    - Good perks and facilities
    - Good learning via trainings
    - Good work life balance
    - No complexity in monetary matters
    - Industry standard increments (avg double digits)

    Cons- Very less scope of work (Potentially you will forget, what you already know)
    - Some cross country managers are poor managers as they don't understand the cultural difference and the ground reality. They do not have capabilities to get proper work for their subordinates and they expect their subordinates to work. What will they work. Why shall a Software engineer do the work of quant analyst, why a BA does the work of Sales person? Is it some kind of joke?
    - India HR is not transparent and are not qualified/ experienced enough to manage HR roles of a Fortune 500 organization
    - No opportunity of long term overseas assignment
    - Stringent on promotions based on years of experience

    Advice to Senior Management- For hybrid model, some training on each geography's culture and work style is required
    - Reanalyze the work within the organization and give the right work to right people. A BA by experience and choice will never like to do sales
    - Improve India HR team's competency please

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
