Pros

Pay was very good. Very employee friendly. Benefits were outstanding. Onsite fitness center a plus. Onsite cafeteria was wonderful. Parking garage was nice attraction.

Cons

A lot of corporate politics and red tape. Leadership was slow to make decisions and changed their minds often. Economy has impacted sales which impacts bonuses.

    Pros

    Solid mission with great overall benefits package in a global multi-business unit organization that offers growth in a fast paced environment. A large number of the managers did not start in leadership roles.

    Cons

    The organizational structure is matrixed resulting in solid line, dotted line relationships that are not always effectively managed. Top/down communication is not stellar. Technology is slow moving for an organization of this size. Multiple reductions/outsourcing with more to come based on performance (the focus of the cuts not merit based)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Require director level employees and above to work in more than one business to yield a true global vision and prevent the "silo" effect.

    Pros

    MNav is a strong growing business and the lack of bureaucracy allows work to proceed quickly
    Free Coffee

    Cons

    Medtronic as a whole has poor benefits (Vacation and the 401K Match VESTS!)
    Poor systems (Quality and Manufacturing)
    Poor Management (dangerous amateurs)
    Poor facility (not well cared for, dirty bathrooms)
    Unethical business practices (management is not to be trusted, eventually their business practices will catch up with them)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Medtronic Corporate needs to take an interest in this organization
