I have been working at Medtronic full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Lots of great, smart, passionate people that are doing their very best to make products that help customers alleviate pain, restore health, and extend life.

Cons

Culturally slow to change and fully embrace innovation. Too concerned with what the global regulatory bodies will think and how they will react.

    Current Employee - Senior Technical Specialist in San Antonio, TX

    I have been working at Medtronic full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, best paying job I've ever had, co-workers (most of them), schedule options, bonuses, raises, and work from home opportunities.

    Cons

    The amount/frequency of policy changes, the new training approach for new employees, the new hiring process altogether. Work/Life balance is extensive, but policies lack compassion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The segmented training is frustrating for those of us who easily made it through the old way (6 weeks) of training. Segmented training seems to just cause more confusion (from fully trained reps not knowing who does what, and not being able to push back in-scope calls to new hires, to handle other calls in queue at times) and also just seems to take longer to get more fully-trained reps on the call floor.

    Current Employee - Sales Representative
    Current Employee - Sales Representative

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

    Pros

    -Excellent Company Name Recognition
    -Products help people live better lives
    -Employees are world class
    -Wide Spectrum of products
    -Great Benefits
    -Autonomy to do what you were hired to do

    Cons

    -Regular Regime Changes among Executives
    -Regular downsizing/uncertainty
    -Inefficiencies that never get fixed and would be easy to fix
    -Product portfolio and marketing as well as strategies do not allow various divisions to be competitive
    -Limited loyalty and reward for achieving targets and over performing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Hold customers to contracts instead of taking a company loss
    -Price more competitively to increase revenue based on customer perceived value and product life cycle vs competition
    -Become more strategic vs reactive
    -Truly integrate pricing/finance strategy to leverage multiline deals. Customers soon realize that just like in a store that you are spending more money to get something you did not want in the first place and not get a great discount for it. Deals should be a package that is attractive.
    -Change customer perception of chaos and instability
