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

    Pros

    (1) Great on-boarding and training opportunities;
    (2) Excellent benefits;
    (3) Large corporation (Fortune 500);
    (4) Cutting edge in terms of industry.

    Cons

    (1) No space for individual creativity (you need to follow standard policies and procedures);
    (2) Limited autonomy, all decisions appear to be consensus-driven;
    (3) Advancement can be challenging in that you need to demonstrate competency for next level before you are promoted, but cannot demonstrate as few tasks are available or assigned "downward".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't presume that Medtronic remains the "gold standard" as a medical device employer in the metro.
