    Pros

    Talented people, current technology, opportunities to learn new things. Company was intentional about developing talent, if you could get into one of the cross-functional development programs.

    Cons

    Work/life balance varied widely from group to group. The company was consistently profitable, but upper management sold them out to Medtronic and collected multi-million-dollar bonuses for themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Enjoy your golden parachutes, while the rank-and -file workers experience Medtronic's cost savings thru "back office efficiencies" that they've promised their investors. Remember what they say about karma...

    Pros

    Great products and there is a real sense of helping to save lives with all employees. Very cool customer interactions and product development work.

    Cons

    Not a diverse working environment. Management tends to hire similar folks from within and does not look for diverse work habits or thoughts.

    Advice to Management

    Look to hire people with varying work experiences and backgrounds. Provide world-class training for existing teams in order to increase creativity and knowledge of commercial teams.
