Tech Center in India is inundated with favouritism....

Senior Engineer (Current Employee)
Gurgaon, Haryana

I have been working at Stryker full-time for more than 3 years

Pros- Good Work - Life balance..plan your work the way you want as long as your deliverables are on time

ConsManagers play total favouritism...will blindly promote people who only talk and not deliver anything
No respect for skill and experience...make Gallup strengths a joke
Totally insensitive to career path...very very short sighted management
Just keep planning and planning with endless meetings and issues...nobody provides the solution
Create hype by identifying more and more problems
Tech Center has really some out of the world experts in making simplest of the things to most complicated ones
Full of morones...management completely blind and only believes in wothless hierarchy

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease open your eyes......

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

Reviews are always a reflection of personal opinion and Experience of the individual :)

Associate Tech Lead (Current Employee)
Gurgaon, Haryana

I have been working at Stryker full-time for less than a year

Pros-Cool work timings
-Lot to learn if one wants to. Only thing is one needs to be proactive. Lot of training programs to be grabbed.
-If one strikes the right chord at work, growth is exemplary. One needs to be positive.
-Good employee engagement
-I have to admit it is a professional environment

Cons-Career path is not clear for most of individuals.
-Too much dotted line reporting concept makes the employee confused.
-Company could have automated most of the processes, but has failed and still rely on hell lot of paper-work for almost everything.
-Off-shore model in IT dept. has failed to an extent or more precisely has not been achieved as per the target - due to the politics by people sitting in other geography (esp. Desi)

Advice to Senior Management-Get the pulse of the team - the building blocks
-Set accountability in all area and not only in sales and marketing. Expand it to HR, finance, IT
-Be pro-active, move fast to align with technology and development in all areas. Set Captains in the areas for the same if possible.

India story coming to end, Managers are reaping what they have seeded. Top management runing away..

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Stryker

ProsGood Food
Flexible timings
No monitoring or directions from indian management
High salaries to undeserving candidates as attrition is at height

ConsBad managers
Bad recognition
Billing model makes you to work 15 hrs a day and that too on things you do not know
Lot of confusion about reportings
Closing business from Stryker US
Personal favourites of managers get all benifits and salary hikes
Some teams are having no work at all they come at 12 pm and leave by 5 pm.
They will spoil your profile for their billing to continue.
No coordination between Indian teams and US teams. Managers come at the end when matters are out of control and resolution is always to fire resources

Advice to Senior ManagementAll management in India is already gone. American management shall close/they will close R&D in India ASAP. They shall only keep IT support center in India.

Service industry managers in SGTC shall be replaced with some product based company managers

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