    Pros

    Benefits are good, pay is fair

    Cons

    Too much micro management especially from sales reps who think they're overpaid managers. Call is a nightmare and you're not paid for it.

    Advice to Management

    Spread the wealth. Sales reps make way too much when the division of sales duties are spread out among the team.

    Pros

    Mission, coworkers, free parkin, free coffee and desks.

    Cons

    Management is slow to adopt change. Ceo is clueless in today's technology. Never hire new blood and tend to shuffle the chairs. Hundreds of money and time savings ideas are brought up but management and governance shoot them down and blame the budget.

    Advice to Management

    I would outsource ALL of it to a 3rd party and don't even bother with it. It is not medtronics core business and the business expectations of IT is unattainable. By outsourcing all of IT, projects could easily move to the cloud and keep core IT employees working only on SAP. Put all the risk for hipaa data on 3rd party hosting providers and let them handle security. Right now medtronics doesn't care about security or patient data. Everything is using 10 to 20 year old technology with no patchin or upgrade schedule.

    Pros

    Lots of long-standing engineers willing to help.

    Cons

    Management focused on short-term and makes decisions that come back to bite them in the end with no accountability.

    Advice to Management

    Hold each other accountable.

    Pros

    Good pay and excellent benefits. Most of the people there believe in the Mission.

    Cons

    Upper management too focused on the short term numbers, so they set unrealistic target dates, ignore brewing issues, and raid resources from longer term projects to drive nearer term commitments. Delivering the quarterly and yearly numbers always trumps employee development requiring fresh employees who are knowledgeable in the latest technology in order to keep pace with upstart competition.

    Advice to Management

    Live the intended culture, don't just give it lip service.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Fulfilling products. Lots of restaurants to eat at nearby because of the college there.

    Cons

    Horrible company culture. Half the people there are just to get a stable job, the other half care about the customers.

    Advice to Management

    Change the culture to be more fun.
