I worked at Medtronic full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Salary, benefits, flexible work schedule

Cons

Too much work for too many people. The company is top-heavy with management. No career growth. There are few opportunities to pursue.

Advice to Management

Upper management is the problem! They have no vision, and continue to reside in the past. A clean sweep is in order.

    I worked at Medtronic full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic benefits like 401K company match, tuition assistance, paid holidays and vacations, work from home available in many departments, encourages employees to volunteer in the community, schlorships available for children of employees, excellent health benefits for example I paid around $200 per month for a family of 4 the only out of pocket costs I had were for $20 co-pays no co-insurance and no deductible, plan paid at 100% of medical costs when admitted to the hospital.

    Cons

    Promotion is based on who you know not what you know. Whenever they posted a new job position they already knew who they were planning to give the job to. It is just a formality that the job had to be posted for a specific number of days. They say that they want to retain talent; however there is a lack of promotion from within; instead they hire their friends from the outside, and promote their friends. For example, there was a woman who only had a bachelor's degree in biology, and no directly related work experience, yet she was hired in as a senior financial analyst. Then about every year or two she would be promoted. Whenever they wanted to promote someone who didn't meet the requirements, they would custom create the job position. For example, to be a Principle Financial Analyst you were to have at minimum 7 years of direct experience and a degree in a directly related field like finance or accounting; however they would change the requirement to 2 years and exclude the requirement for needing a related degree. These types of things occurred all the time! It significant decreased employee morale.

    Advice to Management

    Hire and promote base upon who deserves it not on who you know!
