Stryker

Finace and Accounting Intern

May - July 2021 • Kalamazoo, MI

What I liked

Stryker was a very team-based and innovative working culture. My experience working with Stryker had a profound impact on my professional development as a student pursuing Finance. The collaborative and collective network of individuals who made up the team I worked on were motivating and provided me with a lot of knowledge and information on different financial processes and data. I learned how to use power apps, create finacial visualizations and expand my network within the comapny.

What I wish was different

I really enjoyed all aspects of the internship. I don't think it could have been better. Although I think working alongside another intern is something that I wished I had experienced. However, during the internship, you do work on a group-based project with interns from other divisions on a case study project which is very nice as you come together with these other interns and create a really insightful project that in a way you get to make your own.

Advice

I think going through the interview process and the internship is building up those communication and team-building skills part of the job is connecting with individuals across the company and being able to network so really develop those skills prior to the internship role to make the most and be successful in the role.

Project Management Intern

May - August 2019 • Kalamazoo, MI

What I liked

Stryker's culture is fast-paced, challenging, and values all different perspectives to solve problems. From day one I was given responsibilities to help contribute in a meaningful way to the business. Interns are valuable members of the team and are treated as such. The leadership and support I received from both my manager and mentor was a key reason I was able to grow so much from my experience this past summer.

What I wish was different

I wish I would have taken advantage of making use of the resources available to experience different aspects of the business outside of my functional team.

Advice

The people at Stryker are eager to help you learn and grow if you just ask. Do not be afraid to reach out to upper level management to schedule time to learn about their success and gain advice for your future. Everyone is willing to help you have a successful career.

Marketing Intern

May - August 2019 • Mahwah, NJ

What I liked

I loved that I was given projects that mattered. I was never given a job to do that was just “busy work.” I got to attend meetings with my manager every single day and learned about the operations of a Fortune 500 company first hand.

What I wish was different

Honestly, nothing.

Advice

Network, network, network! If you are interning somewhere, try to get to know as many people at the company as you can and build meaningful relationships with them.

Marketing IN

May - August 2019 • Kalamazoo, MI

What I liked

Prior to my internship, I had a great interest in Stryker. After working in the CMF division for a summer, I am fully confident that Stryker is a company I want to be a part of. I had the opportunity to work on a large number of various projects that had real company impact, travel to different CMF events, and learn more about the other divisions.

What I wish was different

A goal my manager set was for me to get field experience by going on a ride along with a sales representative. I was unable to do this for timing reasons, and I do wish this is something I would have been able to do as I have an interest in sales.

Advice

My biggest piece of advice is to go into Stryker with an open mind and be ready to work hard! You will be challenged, but there are so many people surrounding you who will take time to help you succeed and overcome challenges.
