Pros

Decent salary, flexible work options, good medical/dental/optical insurance, on site day care and gym facilities, good disability accomodation, good tuition reimbursement program.

Cons

Requires a college degree to advance past the entry level exempt position. Their job postings say "college or experience" but in reality only college is accepted. I have 28 years experience in supply chain and logistics management, but I am told every year that I cannot be promoted until I get a degree - ANY- degree. This is very short-sighted of Medtronic's management.

Advice to Management

Promote based on merit, talent and experience rather than a general standard. You are holding back some of your most innovative thinkers and talented people because you insist on being inflexible.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, for the most part very dedicated and skilled.
    Competitive salary and benefits.
    Good work environment

    Cons

    Upper management, gutting the main business unit and sending the jobs to the CEO's hometown.
    The company is "growing" at the expense of American taxpayers jobs (true, that's like many other companies).
