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

    Pros

    Huge budgets. Generally nice people. The products they make genuinely save and improve lives. You can always feel good about your end product.

    Cons

    Huge company. In some cases, there are 9+ levels from engineer to top management. They might not all have direct lines on the org charts because they did a reorg to hide it, but the same chains of command are still there. You can do nothing but come to your desk each day and drool and you'll get your 2% raise. You can put your life and wellbeing into your work and get 3%.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees. Set features + set timeline = failure.
