I have been working at St. Jude Medical full-time for more than a year

Pros

opportunities galore, forward thinking, positive culture, fair compensation, great executive leadership, very aware of life balance. Great products. still small enough so that it does not feel like a mega corp.

Cons

inter divisional politics a challenge, struggling to keep up with growth - basic company services (HR and Benefits) understaffed. Processes and workflow still old school at times

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Converge and align (rinse and repeat)

Recommends
Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

    CEO too focused on the stock price so that he can continue selling it

    I have been working at St. Jude Medical

    Pros

    Technology that save lives and improves patient quality of life
    Pretty good pay for relatively easy work
    Somewhat flexible work hours

    Cons

    CEO and upper management mostly care about the stock price
    Cost cutting all the time
    Crappy benefits compared to many tech companies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace the CEO
    Focus on making high quality products, and stop rushing product deliveries
    Focus on making employees happy
    Focus on making patients happy
    Stop focusing on the shareholders, and stock price
    Happy employees will increase productivity and quality, and eventually the stock price will follow.
