I worked at Medtronic

Pros

High caliber people working in an industry that impacts people's lives. Great benefits and good pay. Minneapolis staff are some of the best people I have ever worked with.

Cons

Boys club, Ridiculous amounts of red tape to get the job done. Too heavy on managers and not enough people to get the job done. In this industry your job IS your life, leading to stress and burnout.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of some of the unnecessary levels of management. Reducing benefits to the people who touch the customer might save money in the short term, but cost you your reputation.

    I have been working at Medtronic

    Pros

    While you are working here everyday with the company, you know that at the same time you help others improve their lives.

    Cons

    Here we are a US centric company and those HQs are not having proper structure to support other regions in developing business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone here is motivated by our mission, and we are willing to go extra miles only to serve more patients. This makes Medtronic different from other companies.

    I worked at Medtronic

    Pros

    The company itself is very stable and provides their employees with great benefits. The company also has great senior leadership and culture.

    Cons

    As with any large company, there are always a few drawbacks. Some of the major drawbacks occurred while I was still employeed there. Most of the changes and issues originated with the company streamlining their business, which of course is practical, however there were times when an employee would few less valuable and more like an expendable business unit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To be honest, my main criticism would be the lack of support when it came to solutions or ideas in the field. Medtronic is very "cookie-cutter" and doesn't appreciate anyone deviating from the path they assume is best when many other paths can be just as successful or more so.
