I have been working at Medtronic as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Very talented workers, the end result of your work is to save other peoples lives, you gain a lot of useful experience. Lots of new opportunities and room for growth and development.

Cons

The company is ran poorly- too many people in upper management- need to level the management staff, unstable working environment/yearly reduction in force in the people who are actually doing the work that matters and keeping paying huge salaries and living expenses for directors and VP's who live out of state and travel back and forth each week. I put a lot of myself into this company and got very little back.

Advice to Management

Many jobs could be saved if someone really spent the money from the budgets the way it should be spent... Cut back on the meeting catering and living expenses for higher ups and keep some people who are actually worth the money.

    Pros

    Medtronic has pretty good benefits like performance bonus and good health plans. The salary is really not bad when compared to other companies in the area.

    Cons

    The problem at Medtronic has more to due with the way the company is run locally. The local management are a bunch of yes men. What ever upper management wants the local management just says yes without thinking things completely or caring about what is actually possible for the production personal to do. They make promises that we can not actually keep and when it doesn't get done it's always our fault and not theirs.

    Advice to Management

    Try to see if what you promise is actually doable and don't embark in things without the support of the people who are actually doing the work because if it get done management celebrates because the made it happen but if it doesn't get done it's always the production personal fault and we get punished or blamed always.
