Pros

Medtronic is one of the best Fortune 500 companies to work for in the medical industry. I never had a bad experience while I was there and they always treated me fairly when it came to sales territory and job tasks.

Cons

The only con I can think of wasn't first hand, but it still is a game of office politics. Some other sales reps made their numbers, and really did a great job but were passed up on promotions for the cheaper alternative of new-hires from other companies.

Advice to Management

Management should keep on doing what they are doing, but start to address a better system of promoting sales reps. I guess that's a lot to ask for because there really are a bit of office politics in every high-level job these days.

    Pros

    helping people with diabetes, working for a fortune 500 company, good benefits, near Los Angeles, large market share,

    Cons

    stale "old people" culture, can't get products out the door, doesn't respect employees, management does not seem to be united, does not promote work-life balance, long hours of work expected

    Advice to Management

    The culture is too stale with a "good ol' boys culture" To stay competitive, need to look into showing respect to employees.
