    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

    Pros

    a good place for junior engineers to gain experience in medical device industry. Lots of smart people to learn from.

    Cons

    upper management focused on the stock price and profit margin. Quality is no longer a top priority. St. Jude Medical has paid tens of millions in fines to DOJ the last few years. Recent lay offs in the hundreds. Not a happy place anymore. Moral is terrible.

    Advice to Management

    replace the CEO with someone who has a moral compass and cares about developing and rewarding employees. Stop reducing benefits every year.
