Pros

Generally good culture, rewarding products that make a real difference in people's lives, compensation is decent, work/life balance is very good

Cons

Could make more money going to MDT or STJ (well-known fact), middle management isn't always great at letting lower levels do their jobs, definitely run by "cliques"

Advice to Management

Make it more about being a meritocracy than it currently is. Stock options are nice, but when is the stock going to go up?

    Pros

    Good Benefits
    Great co-workers
    Casual working environment
    No micro-managing
    Management gives recognition
    Able to telecommute
    I work with some very bright people and have learned much during my time here.

    Cons

    I believe the corporate management is still running scared after the lifting of the warning letter. I'm not seeing enough focus on new technology. There are too many fires that they feel need putting out.

    Pros

    Relatively decent salary in relation to the market.
    Good work-life balance.
    Unlimited sick time available.
    Good 401K match (for at least the time being).

    Cons

    Management - all levels...it's a brotherhood of dull white guys. Tow the line or be fired.
    Outsourcing everything...manufacturing, IT, Software dev.
    Location - Arden Hills is depressing. You're one of the chosen few if you can see a window from your cube.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company to J&J or anyone who will take you!! You are done in the implantable CRV space.
