I worked at Medtronic full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good pay and benefits (even though they seem to be decreasing). The working environment decently laid back - some are overloaded and working at a frantic pace, while others are the polar opposite.

Cons

Too much bureaucracy. Very heavy on management. Receiving credit for rectifying major problems or being an integral part of a "fire fighting" team more often than not leads nowhere. The company seems to be more interested in hiring engineers to do technician work than having a defined role.

Advice to Management

Everyone has their specified role - so hire for that type of work. Give people the credit they deserve and promote, promote, promote!

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

    Pros

    compare to other companies, it provides OK benefits. It has floating holidays and stock purchase discount for 15 percent. It has flexible hours.

    Cons

    Many people of color are very frustrated to work here. They are expected to deliver results, but they are not giving enough opportunity to be promoted.

    Advice to Management

    don't expect any change.
