I worked at Medtronic full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Working there for over 3 years, I was able to meet a lot of great people with a lot of great ideas.

Cons

Management was very micro-managing and never accepted feedback from their subordinates. Unable to network, management would not allow it.

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

    Pros

    Nice work environment, great people, interesting projects.

    Cons

    Large company with associated bureaucracy... regulated development environment with rigorous project and engineering process requirements.

    Advice to Management

    Try to find a way to separate management and technical problems. It seems that project and functional managers get involved in all decisions (there are no technical positions equivalent to management) -- that weakens the technical process and demotivates the technical team -- they have little decision-making power: "... suggestions and white papers only, please".
