Pros

Vibrant, engaged people striving for excellence.
Management that listens.
Exciting projects, and opportunities to innovate, excel, and achieve great results - to be recognized for it.

Cons

Everyone seems extraordinarily busy - nearly overloaded with everything that needs to get done.
Too much seems to be Minneapolis-centric. The company needs to be more global - which starts with recognizing that great ideas and solutions can come from any location.

Advice to Management

Reducing headcount seems to be too easy of a lever to pull.
However, it has enormous and often counterproductive effects - overloaded people, a tendency towards demoralization and demotivation.
Instead, focus on growth and pursuing excellence. Choose the best and brightest, give them the support, and remove the distraction of worrying about who will lose their job tomorrow. That casts a pall over things - and honestly, with these profit margins, layoffs are unnecessary and counterproductive.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good pay, low cost of living area. Still some great talent there, but most of the top talent has moved on.

    Cons

    Directionless executive leadership which makes things worse by not fostering intellectually honest discussion. Abysmal leadership among sr executives at the corporate headquarters in MN has not helped.

    Advice to Management

    Move in a strong leader who is not afraid of making decisions and who is able to put an end to a division that is run by numerous departments, namely compliance, legal and HR. Ultimately, Medtronic's solution will involve a breaking up of the company.
