    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 Management

    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....

    I have been working at Medtronic full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunities for people in their 20s and 30s. Plenty of extra committees and workshops to learn the different business.

    Cons

    Over 40s are stagnated. Very few opportunities for over 40s not to move up the ladder. They have bully managers and HR doesn't even know what that means.

    Advice to Management

    Be aware of bully managers. Check out both sides before taking action. Train managers on how to believe the employees in these situations.
