    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.

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

    Pros

    Saving lives, prolonging lives, always a great mission and this company makes a ton of dough.

    Cons

    Sr HR VP just left the company. Not sure what happened in this situation, but she was trying to make some necessary changes. She was intensely disliked, as an outsider, she challenged the status quo. Long-time staff and the good old girls/boys club will do anything to maintain status quo to keep their checks coming. Infrastructure is so bloated with VP's and Directors, I'm not sure how anyone is going to make necessary changes. Cult-like atmosphere and the mantra is stay below the radar, or you'll end up out the door.

    Advice to Management

    Eventually the stockholders will start asking the right questions, I hope you have the right answers. Stockholder value is depressed, it would be easy to figure out how bloated this organization is...how many VP's (all levels) and how man Directors (all levels) do you have? The ratio is rediculous. The travel budgets are out of control. Waste, waste, waste....
