I have been working at Medtronic as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

Very talented workers, the end result of your work is to save other peoples lives, you gain a lot of useful experience. Lots of new opportunities and room for growth and development.

Cons

The company is ran poorly- too many people in upper management- need to level the management staff, unstable working environment/yearly reduction in force in the people who are actually doing the work that matters and keeping paying huge salaries and living expenses for directors and VP's who live out of state and travel back and forth each week. I put a lot of myself into this company and got very little back.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Many jobs could be saved if someone really spent the money from the budgets the way it should be spent... Cut back on the meeting catering and living expenses for higher ups and keep some people who are actually worth the money.

    Pros

    Helping patients get access to Medtronic therapies. Fairly stable company, great health, vision, and dental benefits. Overall not a bad place to work.

    Cons

    Too many politics, unbalanced work load (some are swamped, many are barely busy), too big, corporate controls too many aspects of the business, too many presentations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Things need to change - the sales force has been spoiled for too long and don't work hard enough to support the goals of the company. There are people in Memphis who bust their tails trying to help sales while those guys are getting paid tons of money without and recourse if they don't hit quota.
