    Some employees can get lost in the shuffle and feel just like a number unless you find a way to standout.

    Pros

    -benefit package better than most companies
    -Inspiring mission
    -flexible work environment with ability to grow and learn

    Cons

    -change is constant as with most mature large companies so not a negative but something you have to expect and embrace so might be challenging for some that don't embrace change
    -communication and silo management can prove difficult at times but tolerable and normal for a large company

    Pros

    A large company that hires great talented individuals who get along with each other. In my experience, the people that they hire and the company culture attracts genuine people.

    Cons

    The company is large so it is easy to get lost in the mix. You must not only stand out, but make sure others know you stand out.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on career development, then you can keep your employees fully satisfied. Often career development is left to the vices of the employee. They may or may not know how to do this. Offer direction.

    Pros

    Management encouraged personal development and innovative skunk works projects, which encouraged many of the engineers. Working to save and improve lives can be a real motivator when projects bog down in testing and lengthy product development schedules.

    Cons

    As a large company Medtronic is quite risk averse, and has a hard time disrupting itself which may likely hurt its staying power in the long run. The incentives of managers and executives don't line up well to become a rapidly innovative global company.
