    I have been working at Medtronic full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people excellent projects (when funded) mission driven organization (at least from the employees left from those days)

    Cons

    Annual layoffs over past 3-4 years, not the Medtronic it used to be (doubt if Earl B. would recognize this company anymore). For past 3-5 years a definite strategy to move out of MN and become a global conglomerate absolutely flush with management layers, politics, and "strategury" in the Bush sense of the word.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What made this company great was alignment to the mission from top to bottom that is now eroding drastically as the global financial chiefs chase the profit dollar (do you need to make ALL THE MONEY) to keep the boated company afloat. The distance between upper management and the scientist/engineers is great now with little respect for what it actually takes to get innovative medical devices to market.
