I worked at Medtronic as a contractor for 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 ManagementAdvice

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".
