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

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.

    I worked at Medtronic full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Mission driven - Leader in medical devices - Strong products that benefit patient care - People are fantastic and they are willing to impart their knowledge

    Cons

    - Overall strategy has lost its way (e.g. innovation vs. developing market growth) - HR's career ladder will continue to move you laterally

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people (at all levels) continue to play to your strengths, Know when to override HR's rules based approach to career development.
