The Medtronic Mission

To contribute to human welfare by application of biomedical engineering in the research, design, manufacture, and sale of instruments or appliances that alleviate pain, restore health, and extend life.

  • To direct our growth in the areas of biomedical engineering where we display maximum strength and ability; to gather people and facilities that tend to augment these areas; to continuously build on these areas through education and knowledge assimilation; to avoid participation in areas where we cannot make unique and worthy contributions. 

  • To strive without reserve for the greatest possible reliability and quality in our products; to be the unsurpassed standard of comparison and to be recognized as a company of dedication, honesty, integrity, and service.

  • To make a fair profit on current operations to meet our obligations, sustain our growth, and reach our goals. 

  • To recognize the personal worth of employees by providing an employment framework that allows personal satisfaction in work accomplished, security, advancement opportunity, and means to share in the company's success. 

  • To maintain good citizenship as a company.

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


    The mission to improve access to healthcare globally is something we are all very proud to work hard toward achieving. Great people, fun atmosphere, big city salaries in the North Bay. The CEO is fantastic - he is a very clear communicator of the mission and is truly dedicating his life to achieving it.


    A lot of reorganizations and constant changes to the focus, mainly due to a lot of acquisitions - which is great, but makes it tough to know what your future looks like. I've had 3 roles in less than 3 years.

    Negative Experience


    I had applied and the company had the audacity to claim they took "careful consideration" in assessing me and conclude that they were going to move on. I applied not even 12hrs prior, met all the requirement criteria and never even spoke a word to someone. What could someone "carefully" consider when they haven't even spoke to someone? The only variables on the application were questions regarding race, gender, age, and veteran status. So, for someone who meets the criteria, what else could an employer "carefully consider" besides (unfairly and illegally) stereotyping or judging someone for their race, gender, age, or veteran status?
