    I have been working at Medtronic

    Pros

    The culture at Medtronic is at best average.

    Cons

    The company makes upward mobility very difficult. Managers are "appointed" rather than developed. I have a high school degree but I am better at my job than my supervisors/managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people based on knowledge, character, skill and integrity and not just a college degree. Diversity is not filling the room with people of different ethnicity, with the same thought(s).

    Pros

    Salary & Benefits
    Opportunities
    Ethical Management that tries to do the right thing.

    Cons

    Very political
    Annual restructuring which is stressful
    You must control your own career - they offer no guidance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the annual restructuring. It's distracting and anxiety provoking.
    Hunt down those managers that are poor and remove them. This is a huge blind spot.
