Current Employee - Research and Development Engineer in Maple Grove, MN

I have been working at St. Jude Medical full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Smaller size company versus some other major players in the market, strong device portfolio.

Cons

Inability to deviate for project timelines when major issues arise that cause significant design changes, even when these design changes will improve effectiveness of product.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow for product design team to actually design the appropriate device, versus hitting a time to market deadline.

    Pros

    Good benifits, Work is interesting, fair compensation but below current market / industry overall

    Cons

    Extremely political and stressful environment. Unethical management. To many unproductive meetings. Lack of communication and expectations. Hostile management. Everything is a fire drill while working in a reactive and not proactive work environment. You are noticed only for the amount of brown nosing and not for what you provide and contiribute. What you are hired for and what you actually do are completly different. Discrimination againsted hiring people with past or current military background. Unbalanced work / personal life. Lack of training / mentioning for new employees. No loyalty and respect with co-workers and management. Coworkers and management seem to feel threatened if you have more knowledge or experience.

    This job was the worst in my career. I have never seen such ineffective leaders, with absolutely no idea how an IT business is run in a professional organization. Cannot recommend this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management and coworkers need to be held accountable for their actions. Management needs to ensure positive and focused work environment. Code of ethics, moral and professionalism needs to be transparent with everyone.
