"Good experience on the complexities of Software Development on a highly regulated company"

Former Intern - Software Engineer
Former Intern - Software Engineer

I worked at Medtronic as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Good travel opportunities. If you're self-motivated, at least on the team I worked with, you would be allowed to pursue the projects that you wanted to be involved with. Also, the nature of the projects allowed you to go over the full Software Dev. Lifecycle.

Cons

Highly regulated company. Since they are regulated by the FDA, validations take forever, with multiple back and forth with the QA team. Of course, that is good for the quality of the products, but it is tiresome.

    Pros

    Great cross-functional experience. Opportunities to work in established and emerging therapies available. Exposure to multiple customer types, therapeutic areas, and devices.

    Cons

    Complex matrix organization. Significant variation in quality of managers. Culture varies by geography and business unit.

    Advice to Management

    Employee retention could be improved with more stringent requirements and metrics around people management-- particularly the quality of managers. While there are many opportunities for professional development, it can be challenging to access those resources.
