Pros

Nice people and nice environment to career progress. Final product is saving life.

Cons

Some technology is not that high tech. Product cycle is very slow.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Some of the senior management needs to focus on seeing beyond 5 years and focus on more new technologies

    Pros

    St. Jude has a strong track record of positioning itself for profitability and for capturing share amongs its competitors. Overall, the management team is very strong.

    Cons

    Company's main area of CRM may have matured, and ther may now be limited growth progression within the company. The company does not seem to promote employee development for those interested in expanding functional roles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management understands the landscape very well, but it needs to focus on itsself more on its branding and marketing initiatives.

    Easy, comfortable jobs. Some challenges if you seek them, but overall, a sleepy place.

    I have been working at St. Jude Medical

    Pros

    Good benefits, comfortable work-life balance.

    Cons

    SJM is a large unwieldy organization. Its hard to get things done or moving along because there are so many people that need to be coordinated and levels of authorization you need to get. Maybe this is typical of companies this size, but agility is not a word I'd use to characterize the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of following the lead of other major medical device companies, try driving SJM to be the leader and innovator. As a smaller company (in comparison to Medtronic, etc), we should be able to be the small, agile innovator rather than a 3rd place follower.
