    I have been working at Medtronic full-time for 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 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".
