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

    Pros

    Medical Device oriented. Good team work and great products. People are more focused on the product and market rather than just internal politics. Specific products range from life sustaining devices to devices that help restore normalcy to life.

    Cons

    Big company, hence lot of bureaucracy and heavy upper management. Upper management transparency is limited in some of the divisions. Some divisions don't seem to be thinking long term growth and not investing in advanced technologies. Some of the divisions in the company seem to be going towards less innovation centric and more acquisition centric.

    I have been working at Medtronic full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Mission, saving people, flexible hours if salaried, promote and pay for training.

    Cons

    Wish pay was more. Wish managers used the Recognize program how its supposed to be used. Just killed a project and got nothing for it, while others show up to work and get points for combing their hair.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote people who deserve it. Directors should get involved because some managers forget to do this.
