No opinion of CEO

I worked at Medtronic as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Nice work environment, great people, interesting projects.

Cons

Large company with associated bureaucracy... regulated development environment with rigorous project and engineering process requirements.

Advice to Management

Try to find a way to separate management and technical problems. It seems that project and functional managers get involved in all decisions (there are no technical positions equivalent to management) -- that weakens the technical process and demotivates the technical team -- they have little decision-making power: "... suggestions and white papers only, please".
