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

Pros

Decent salary, flexible work options, good medical/dental/optical insurance, on site day care and gym facilities, good disability accomodation, good tuition reimbursement program.

Cons

Requires a college degree to advance past the entry level exempt position. Their job postings say "college or experience" but in reality only college is accepted. I have 28 years experience in supply chain and logistics management, but I am told every year that I cannot be promoted until I get a degree - ANY- degree. This is very short-sighted of Medtronic's management.

Advice to Management

Promote based on merit, talent and experience rather than a general standard. You are holding back some of your most innovative thinkers and talented people because you insist on being inflexible.

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

    Pros

    Company works hard to do the right thing and treat people well

    Cons

    Too many mid-level managers that do not deserve their posts but seem to be protected by others in certain divisions

    Advice to Management

    -look at the pay scale for those who do the most work
    -have more communication with employees to assess talent within and develop it appropriately

    Pros

    Mission, saving people, flexible hours if salaried, promote and pay for training.

    Cons

    Wish pay was more. Wish managers used the Recognize program how its supposed to be used. Just killed a project and got nothing for it, while others show up to work and get points for combing their hair.

    Advice to Management

    Promote people who deserve it. Directors should get involved because some managers forget to do this.
