    I have been working at St. Jude Medical full-time for 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.
