Too many tenured employees driving against a culture of change.

Current Employee - Senior Engineer in Minneapolis, MN

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

Pros

Great benefits and respect for families. Onsite cafeteria, above average vacation. Superior 401k variable match program.

Cons

Sparse opportunities for non-club members. Don't get comfortable in your position. You will have to actively manage your career if you want to advance. Very top heavy at the management and tenured employee level.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reward those who make changes, reverse the negative, non-adaptive culture stagnation that is dragging this place down.

    Current Employee - IT Business Systems Analyst in Minneapolis, MN

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    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).
