No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Medtronic full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

(1) Great on-boarding and training opportunities;
(2) Excellent benefits;
(3) Large corporation (Fortune 500);
(4) Cutting edge in terms of industry.

Cons

(1) No space for individual creativity (you need to follow standard policies and procedures);
(2) Limited autonomy, all decisions appear to be consensus-driven;
(3) Advancement can be challenging in that you need to demonstrate competency for next level before you are promoted, but cannot demonstrate as few tasks are available or assigned "downward".

Advice to Management

Don't presume that Medtronic remains the "gold standard" as a medical device employer in the metro.

    I worked at Medtronic full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Health,Dental and Optical benefits and free coffee!

    Cons

    Management could care less about you! Unsafe working conditions, just do your job or find another one is the Company motto.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees!!! Medtronic was not only built on their products, but the people who care and truly want to help patients and customers. Upper management is very out of touch to the everyday goings on in their facilities. The location I worked at was a small in house Sterilizer and one day they threatened to close the facility and the next day they wanted you to help out by
    working 7 days a week. Several employees were hurt moving heavy metal carts with bad wheels
    and then had their jobs threatened if they didn't like it.
