Great place to build a career

Manager (Current Employee)

ProsGreat pay and benefits, worklife balance is good also
Dan Starks is the best leader in the industry
The company has grown much, and continues to grow
Most of the people who work at the company are easy to work with
Though it is a lean organization,but because of the growth there is room for advancement and growth. You'll never be bored.
I can honestly say I am proud to work for this company. I've never seen them cut corners, and folks here care about the lives of the patients receiving the devices.

ConsSome divisions are better to work for than others. Avoid the AF Division (unless you are a new leader and looking to change the culture - in which case ...).
Same goes for leadership - most of the company leaders are simply amazing. But being the wrong department is a career killer.
Because of the growth, change is constant. You never know when your group may reorganize.
It is still very much a "good 'ol boys club"

Advice to Senior ManagementIt is much, much easier to promote from within than to have to find and recruit a new person. If you have an employee who continues to get additional responsibility with no raise or title change, you are quite likely to have said employee seeking opportunities outside the organization.
Hire more women in leadership roles.
Take a close look at some of the company leaders. If their organization is experiencing turning over there is a good reason for it.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Initially very good place to work but after time you are pigeon holed with little opportunity to grow.

    Company Philosophy is in question, RSD incompetent!

    CRDM Sales Representative (Current Employee)

    I have been working at St. Jude Medical


    Pros: Average base pay, good commission pay, average car allowance, good benefits, ok… Cons: Company philosophy is terrible at best, much of hiring is coming from Boston Sci, RSDs incompetent, work force being reduced… Advice to Senior Management: Find different business model to follow! This is a service oriented industry and that requires… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
