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 Management

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.

    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 Management

    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.

    Great as a global company but on a local level some work needed done within management.

    Pros

    Great benefits package, great communication from the international side. Supportive of a flexible work/life balance. Free parking onsite.

    Cons

    Little recognition and limited opportunities for growth/promotion within the company based on what I saw. Heavy focus was on sales, not marketing.

    Advice to Management

    While there, it seemed that communication was often kept to 'a need to know basis' which limited the potential for teamwork.
