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

Pros

Promotions were good, a lot of discussion team meetings so that you could voice your opinions and bring up suggestions on needed changes in different areas.

Cons

New management took over in the past couple of years and now company is just going down and losing good, hard working people all because of the changes of the new management and the layoffs of people who have been with the company for years and being let go without a legit reason!!! Hate what the company is now!! It's not for the workers it's for management now!!! Sucks!!!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your workers and stop treating us like little kids!! No water, no earbuds anymore!! Come on!! Feels like a jail institution now instead of a workplace!!

    Pros

    Good compensation and benefits, nice facilities, company's products saves lives....

    Cons

    This company is successful because of its products and sales force. Everyone else is just along for the ride. Management within the administrative/support functions is a complete joke. They flounder around on a daily basis providing no direction, no thought leadership, and certainly don't have the knowledge or the guts to make value adding decisions. Often seems the goal is to cost cut rather than provide innovative solutions to the company. Overall the morale within the back office departments is low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company has world class medical technology and is positioned well for top line growth. But so much is being left on the table due to poor back office management. Clean house on the administrative side of the company and bring in some people who can actually help take this company to the next level.
