Current Employee - Sales Representative in Los Angeles, CA

I have been working at Medtronic full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Great benefits, name brand company, typically good reputation in medical community with clinicians, savvy technology company with break through technology

Cons

In sales positions be prepared to give your left arm for your privilege of working there, minimal work life balance with working all day & entertaining at night, culture will ensue burnout after 4-5 yrs

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to change mentality on what makes a good leader and what is valued, need to have a people development program where talented folks stay and want to contribute more rather than leave

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

    Pros

    Good work/life balance.
    Good compensation.
    Experienced people.
    Good industry position and leading market share.

    Cons

    Complicated work place environment and relationship.
    Some managers are lack of professional spirit and integrity.
    Individuals need a presidential campaign type effort to maintain or gain credits.
    Once a project started, it just kept going without good evaluation of its progress and individual performance.
    Short-term goals since some long term goals did not pan out in the past.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need a long term goal.
    Reform middle level management system.
    Processes are not panacea.
    Really let employee see what you did are what you said, for example, Medtronic Mission, result-oriented and activities do not count, deliver instead of talk, .........................................................

    Former Employee - Clinical Specialist
    Former Employee - Clinical Specialist

    I worked at Medtronic full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pay is pretty good for the Clinical Specialist role
    The technical service and IT department are spectacular.

    Cons

    Work environment is not family oriented.
    Clinical Specialist not treated equally to sales reps, though they are equal in the chain of command.
    They do not typically allow CS's to move into the Sales role
    Possible age discrimination issues

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage a better team (CS & sales rep) relationship. Though they are considered to be equal in the chain of command, this is not how it works. There are CS's that are good sales people, even some that are better than their sales reps.
