Pros

- Compensation/benefits are very good
- Leadership and employees genuinely care about the company's mission

Cons

- Med Device market is not a growth industry anymore and employees and leadership have not adjusted to operating in a mature industry.
- Cost down is occurring very rapidly and not in the best interests of many employees

Advice to Management

Plan for fluctuations in the marketplace vs. negotiating yearly Reductions in force.

    Pros

    The benefits and pay are good and the company mission is why so many employees stay.

    Cons

    Poor training, major quality issues, too many layers of management, constant RIFs and lack of respect for the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Quit trimming the worker bees from Medtronic-try cutting a layer of management and you will save a ton of money. Omar is cutting costs in the wrong area and throwing too much money into a new quality system that has no road map. Medtronic used to be a great place to work when I started-it became just a paycheck the past 2 years.
