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

Pros

It is a great company to work for overall. I have a good work-life balance, coworkers, and benefits and compensation are fair. I plan on spending a while at St. Jude.

Cons

St. Jude, as with many large companies, isn't as efficient as it should. Mediocre performance is deemed as acceptable, which is frustrating when you are a high-performing person.

    I worked at St. Jude Medical full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The location is very good.

    Cons

    Management is terrible, can't trust them.

    Advice to Management

    You need to value your employees more. St Jude used to be a awesome company to work for, but then Management changed and the company went downhill fast. Your employees are stressed, overworked and don't trust you! Quit lying to your employees.

    I worked at St. Jude Medical full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits. Travel was not an issue. The entry level employees and manufacturing employees are very dedicated.

    Cons

    short term thinking, a "check it off" mentality more concerned with speed than quality. Frequent layoffs and many contractors make it impossible to maintain any continuity of corporate knowledge. I believe this is the cause of the product recall.

    Advice to Management

    Mr. Starks needs to come back to the office and take back control from the heir apparent. Forget about what Wall Street wants and concentrate on making a good product
