Very positive overall experience working here.

Principal Design Technician (Former Employee)
Memphis, TN

I worked at Medtronic full-time for more than 3 years

ProsExcellent facilities, coworkers, and training and learning opportunities. One of the best decisions I ever made was working at Medtronic, as I met many great coworkers, and learned a great deal that definitely allowed me to advance my career.

ConsLack of opportunities for career advancement unless you have advanced degrees. (MS, PhD) There are many great people working there that have experience and education, but just not to the level required to advance within the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementAllow and inform employees of paths for advancement, giving them the opportunity to rise within the company without having advanced formal education. This would enable employees who have to leave the company for advancement to stay within the company, making it better.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
