I worked at St. Jude Medical full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

St Jude has some great technology and good people.

Cons

The division I worked at was poorly managed and it took it's toll on the personnel. Enthusiasm was lacking. One department had a 100% turnover in 11 months. There seems to be a lot of stress on keeping salaries low at the cost of talent retention.
Then there was the odd information release about a forthcoming 483 letter from the FDA and the lawsuits concerning defective lead insulation........

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take care of of your resources or they will leave to work for the competition; it's your choice.

    Most difficult culture I have ever experienced. In good faith, could not recommend SJM to others.

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

    Pros

    Interesting products that have a positive impact on patients. Lots of highly intelligent talent.

    Cons

    Lack of competent leadership at several levels. Many inexperienced directors and above that have no idea what they are doing and are rewarded for bad decisions and unprofessional behavior. Lack of clear roles and responsibilities makes working with others completely chaotic and unproductive. Massive layoffs are reckless to the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to change leadership at the highest levels to make a positive impact for long-term sustainability. The current leadership is no longer relevant for the success of SJM.

    Great colleagues. Family like culture. Little work-life balance. Little room to grow talents.
