    Pros

    Proactive initiative of employees is supported by St. Jude Medical's management. Although the company is a Fortune 500 company, bureaucracy is very little. This and the companies culture creates a great and supportive work environment.

    Cons

    St. Jude does not have a formalized Leadership Development Program as other Fortune 500 companies. Employers are more responsible to develop their leadership development together with their managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    St. Jude Medicals leadership is doing a fantastic job to strategically position the company well in times when competitors have to adjust their strategies.

    I worked at St. Jude Medical

    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.
