I worked at Medtronic

Pros

Plenty of extremely smart people makes it a great place to learn and grow. Company culture emphasizes work-life balance and the trust that you will get your work done. Everyone is extremely committed to the mission and to helping improve peoples' lives.

Cons

Medtronic has the interesting practice of training all of their interns to go off and work for St. Jude and Boston Scientific; they do not hire anyone out of college. Frequent layoffs. They do not invest in young talent at all, which seems like a bad strategy for long-term growth. They do not have any loyalty towards their employees, everyone seems expendable.

    I worked at Medtronic full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good Salary and Bonus and occasional stock grants

    Cons

    Frequent Layoffs, Company has thin product pipeline of its own and tries to grow with Acquisition of venture companies, many of which fail at hefty costs. Leadership is quite entrenched and is difficult to break in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop your own R&D and try to hire good engineers from good engineering schools and not IVY league MBA schools.
