I have been working at St. Jude Medical

Pros

Company is still small enough for quick decision making and has room to make a positive impact. Work is meaningful, and the majority of the people working there are friendly and nice.

Cons

Organizational structure itself creates frictions hindering growth and efficiency; lack of communication of direction from the senior management, lack of alignment, transparency, and accountability; not a data-driven culture

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate with employees to make sure the vision and priorities and understood; build discipline in decision making and execution; open to different opinions and improvements.

    Pros

    Good pay, good start for medical device industry

    Cons

    Notorious for overwork, lack of communication, telling stockholders they will grow EPS more than 15% annually, yet are so cheap with equipment, raises, etc. The AF Division is so bad that recruiters don't want to send candidates there.
