Pros

You're helping people live the mission of the company. Alleviating pain, restoring health, and extending life. I get to help someone's mother, father, husband or wife live a longer life. When a whole family is afflicted with a genetic abnormality and our device can help them live out their lives for the most part normally, it's a good feeling to be apart of that.

Cons

Keeping the customers and patients expectations within realistic limits of machine/ human capability. When we have a recall all hell breaks loose. There's a lot of men in this industry and you especially notice this at national meetings. Medtronic as I'm sure other companies still have a long way to go in equality.

Advice to Management

Please don't lie to the field force, it doesn't help us win over customers.

    Pros

    The diabetes division of Medtronic has a clear mission, a high degree of support for R&D, and lots of smart people.

    Cons

    While there are a lot of internal users, Marketing is disconnected from outside patients and R&D; R&D is insular and run by a tyrant; top management is mostly ineffectual in combating "us vs. them" attitudes within the facility at all levels. The products haven't changed significantly in seven years or so. There is poor information sharing with other divisions.

    Advice to Management

    Drive R&D personnel to study real patients outside of the facility. Make usability and appeal cornerstones of a new approach to product development. Sideline any manager or above who retards this effort.
