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

    Pros

    Saving lives, prolonging lives, always a great mission and this company makes a ton of dough.

    Cons

    Sr HR VP just left the company. Not sure what happened in this situation, but she was trying to make some necessary changes. She was intensely disliked, as an outsider, she challenged the status quo. Long-time staff and the good old girls/boys club will do anything to maintain status quo to keep their checks coming. Infrastructure is so bloated with VP's and Directors, I'm not sure how anyone is going to make necessary changes. Cult-like atmosphere and the mantra is stay below the radar, or you'll end up out the door.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eventually the stockholders will start asking the right questions, I hope you have the right answers. Stockholder value is depressed, it would be easy to figure out how bloated this organization is...how many VP's (all levels) and how man Directors (all levels) do you have? The ratio is rediculous. The travel budgets are out of control. Waste, waste, waste....

    Pros

    Coworkers are very nice and capable. Mission driven, good benefits.

    Cons

    Generally lacks direction and too much short term focus. Management describes long term picture but you don't know how to get there or if you are even in the picture.
