Layoffs at Stryker

I am hearing 2018 layoffs in Kalamazoo are basically a done deal. Probably sometime in the first quarter.

I do not have information about sales layoffs but will pass on anything else I hear.

Also, part of the master plan is to off-shore to "managed services" as many shared services jobs as possible. IT was started in 2015 and is 80% done, next is accounting, These are mostly Kalamazoo and New Jersey jobs that are being lost. This saves them the cost of benefits including the 401K match, and the discretionary 7% 401K contribution.

It has been announced that Stryker is outsourcing A/R department to Costa Rica and will be completed by the end of 2019.

For those who were listening from the first day Bijoy walked in, this was the plan which came from Lobo. The hundreds of talented IT people who, for the last 20 years helped build Stryker to what it is today, are being tossed to the curb, TCS is the 3rd Outsourcing company in 3 years. Outsourcing doesn't work. There is no ownership, accountability, or innovation. Also, there is a severe lack of security. How much data is begin taken by people on the other side of the world who could give a rats *** about US Privacy laws?

Well stated and another example that Stryker only cares about sales and marketing employees.

There is a global IT reorganization. Stryker is outsourcing all IT positions to TCS out of India. Not very American to maintain corporate headquarters in the U.S. and staff with consultants out of India, Certainly this will not "Make America Great!

Laying off "only 50" people per round is part of the master plan. Usually when layoffs are of a smaller number, the press doesn't find out about it. Not this time. Keep your ears open for more smaller layoffs and please post them. Those 50 were just the start based on the past at Stryker.

"Only" 50 people...

"We have determined that organizational changes are needed to help drive efficiencies across our business, including limited reductions in our work force.

"These changes will allow us to invest in important areas to build new capabilities that will help us keep growing in Kalamazoo and continue meeting the needs of our customers."

The portage mayor should revoke that state grant until Lobo guarantees there will be no more layoffs. Otherwise, you will continue seeing small layoffs here and there that end up amounting to a very sizeable amount of people being let go.

There is a rumor going around of another reorganization and outsourcing in Stryker IT going on in Q3-Q4 in Kalamazoo. People are going to have to re-apply for their jobs.

This wouldn't surprise me at all. I have some friends at Abbott and they use Wipro for their IT outsourcing. Many device and pharma companies have been switching to this model.

Someone on the Entellus board said they were going to increase the salesforce by 35%...who do you believe.

Not that person.

Stryker ENT is going to let half their sales reps go. The funny thing is the Spirox reps will mostly be retained and the legacy Entellus reps will be the first to go.

The Entellus reps need to take note of this: 54 of 109 Novadaq reps were not offered jobs.

Wow.
