    Pros

    Great people to work with
    Working with a company that improves and extends lives

    Cons

    Relies way too much on contractors ("temps).
    If you accept a contract position with Medtronic, be prepared to be exploited. They'll just renew the contract (if you're lucky) over and over until you reach your two year limit (per policy), then lay you off. New contractors are brought in, and the process repeats.
    As a contractor, you do not get their great benefits package, and you're not allowed to partake in most company functions (picnics, etc).
    Medronic has evolved from a place you typically stick with for life, to a revolving door of "temp" workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Directly hire more people to keep in the long haul. Stop the annual cycle of hiring binges and massive layoffs.

    great benefits, salary not competitive

    Pros

    - Great benefits package, especially medical insurance
    - somewhat flexible with your hours
    - 401K and pension

    In general, I liked working at Medtronic, and would like it more if their salary was more competitive since the pay is great. Sometimes it feels like upper management makes all the decisions and others don't get much of a say.

    Cons

    - Parking lot very crowded, need a structure
    - pay is not competitive
    - cafeteria food is not very good
    - very hard to get career advancement
    - HR has slow turnaround
