    Company works hard to do the right thing and treat people well

    Too many mid-level managers that do not deserve their posts but seem to be protected by others in certain divisions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -look at the pay scale for those who do the most work

    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.
