I have been working at Medtronic full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good over all work environment. Most are ultimately looking to help people with their medical products/

Cons

Many above do not think the people below (on the job ladder) are capable of doing as good of a job. Without a MS in engineering it is difficult to have people except your ideas.

    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".
