    I have been working at Medtronic full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It is interesting work that is fulfilling and purposeful. Everyone there is ready to work. They pay well for the industry. Very mature workforce.

    Cons

    Use it or lose it vacation allotment on top of one week of required vacation at the end of the year leads to two weeks of free vacation for new employees (you are granted three weeks but one week is spoken for). After 5 years you get an extra week.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Given the size of the company I would hope that managers would be OK with employees regularly moving between jobs every couple of years.

    benefits, environment, pay is great, management, advanced career opportunities.

    Cons

    i have no cons about the company itself, the parking sucks though

    Advice to Management

    I love this company, they give you every opportunity to move up within the company. the employees is like your second family, managers are great when it comes to helping and there is always positive energy while working. Plus! overtime is not mandatory but the company offers lots of OT which I like.

    Pros

    Good company to work for. Good benefits, good pay. The business is usually stable and not many layoffs, really.

    Cons

    Big company, now after Covidien acquisition. A lot of changes to happen. Middle management and others may be affected with changes.

    Advice to Management

    Need to rotate/clean out upper management. Stale management makes for low morale for everyone. Some business units have ethical issues to address.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, great location and hours. Building facilities have a lot of perks, like a bank, gym and coffee shop.

    Cons

    Corporate politics are huge here.

    Pros

    I had a great experience here as a summer intern. Medtronic was just parental enough, showing me the ropes and leading me to successes while also insisting on independence. It was amazing.

    Cons

    The corporate culture is a lot to get used to at first, but you just have to find your niche. Unfortunately, I could see some quieter folks slipping through the cracks in terms of social experience.

    I worked at Medtronic full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing company with exciting and innovative technology. Excellent health benefits.

    Cons

    Company provides little flexibility for people with families. They will not offer job share, part time or make accommodations to allow employees quality of life.

    Advice to Management

    Open part time positions and job sharing. It is well documented that employers end up getting more productivity from employees in a job sharing than a single employee. Accounts and territories, and comp plans can be divided to help maximize productivity out of stellar sales people while still allowing them quality of life. This is how you will grow a diverse, happy and productive sales force and retain your best employees.

    Pros

    Ethical and quality conscious. Better management than other large corporations I have worked for.

    Cons

    Large corporation...sometimes managers really don't know what is going on.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes you need to get down into the weeds to really understand the process problems.
