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

Pros

Medical device industry is a steady business as a whole. Really nice facility compared to others worked for; location is great. If we stay focused, and stay on top of programs, work together, we can be successful.

Cons

Highly regulated, impossible to make small changes to the process. Engineers need train others on changes they wrote. Work week schedule needs adjusting.
