    Pros

    Health,Dental and Optical benefits and free coffee!

    Cons

    Management could care less about you! Unsafe working conditions, just do your job or find another one is the Company motto.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees!!! Medtronic was not only built on their products, but the people who care and truly want to help patients and customers. Upper management is very out of touch to the everyday goings on in their facilities. The location I worked at was a small in house Sterilizer and one day they threatened to close the facility and the next day they wanted you to help out by
    working 7 days a week. Several employees were hurt moving heavy metal carts with bad wheels
    and then had their jobs threatened if they didn't like it.

    Pros

    Very innovative culture that encourages new ideas and approaches to improve anything. Be it products or processes. Engineering judgment and decision almost always triumphs business or other competing interests.

    Cons

    Implementing anything is procedure-laden. It is not difficult to loose sight of the latest and greatest skills in the technical world. So continuous education and updating oneself is the key to perform well here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always tell the truth, only the truth. Stop sugar-coating. For a change, management is doing just that.
