    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.
