I have been working at St. Jude Medical full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great experience in how a large implantable and interventional medical device company is run. Meet a great variety of interesting, hard-working individuals focused on helping people.

Cons

Your job is always on the line when upper level management might wish to save money. Rewards are massed to the top level people. Very little loyalty by management towards the workers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When wildly profitable, focus on innovation and not the competition.

    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
