Former Employee - Customer Service in Fridley, MN

I worked at Medtronic full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Working there for over 3 years, I was able to meet a lot of great people with a lot of great ideas.

Cons

Management was very micro-managing and never accepted feedback from their subordinates. Unable to network, management would not allow it.

    I have been working at Medtronic full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Interesting work, challenging projects. Some intelligent, quirky, and kind coworkers. Okay pay. Free food sometimes. Free parking. Free tampons. 20 words yet?

    Cons

    Unworkable processes put in place without user input, and no interest in getting them fixed. Company allows poor behavior to thrive, even if it affects the bottom line. Lame tuition reimbursement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hello? Anyone there?? Employ managers who understand the business, the technology, and people, or at least one of those.

    I worked at Medtronic as a contractor (less than an 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".
