    I worked at Medtronic as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great work environment. The team I worked with were collaborative and helpful, always willing to help if I had an end-user situation I wasn't sure how to handle.

    Cons

    Little to no communication from management.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to become more collaborative and flexible with your contractors. They make up a good percentage of your I.T. workforce, and if you penalize them for moonlighting or looking for extra hours elsewhere, you're going to develop a bad reputation. People willing to take on contract work do it largely because they have no choice, thanks to this "new" economy of ours. You need to adjust your managerial style to be more open and understanding, or you're going to lose good contractors to other companies. We DO talk amongst ourselves, you know.

    I worked at Medtronic as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very talented work force. Inspired products and stories. Supportive environment for staff and Medtronic employees.

    Cons

    Lacks shared vision for future. Difficult environment for contractors. Lot's of political loop holes. Unfortunately, staff turnover is seldom, which is good for those employees but some turnover may spur more creative solutions and business acumen.

    Advice to Management

    Shuffle employee talent to get more exposure and diverse experience across business segments. Keeps employees motivated and fresh.
