    Pros

    Great Benefits (not counting pay/bonus structure), Feels good helping people

    Cons

    unfair pay structure - $5 commission per $5-7K pump sold. Yes, you read that right ... $5 - less than .1%

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees fairly, you have a great "motto" about the culture of Medtronic. But a cultural identity is only as good as it's implementation. Walk the Walk. The DTA/DTC culture is toxic. Meetings after meetings on how to "fix" things - nothing was ever done and things got worse. Promote based on real talent/experience.

    Pros

    Great people, a lot of really smart people doing the work. Great benefits and salary.

    Cons

    Yearly lay offs, management shifts, not much in the way of thought leadership. Not much trust in management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some big idea marketing people.
