I worked at Medtronic as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

Great facility, great people... if you get to know them

Cons

Not encouraged to do anything but work work work. Went to a meeting once and a manager asked a woman who had worked for her for 5 years... "How many children do you have?" After working with/for someone for 5 years, you would think family would have come up once!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

People and relationships make the world go 'round! Get to know the folks you work with!

    Took a big pay cut to come to Mdt but ran up against a wall in the quality organization.

    I worked at Medtronic

    Pros

    Mdt. has a great history of knowledge sharing. Will help with continuing education.

    Cons

    Because business units are so focused, there are limited opportunities to attend relavant conferences. While at 3M, attended each year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Going forward, do not downplay the contributions of your major cash cow... CRDM...
    Provide opportunities for industry networking and learning.
