I have been working at Medtronic full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Take care of the employees they value.

Cons

They have been known to lay people off as part of the numbers game. They also have cut the bottom workers instead of one of their dozen managers. They also struggle at integrating process more than a company their size should.

Advice to Management

Laying off anyone someone works with makes everyone feel disposable. Also, big process changes seem to be made in a bubble and applied on top of other processes making them unlikely to succeed.

    I have been working at Medtronic full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits and the work is actually very easy once you understand the business and the expectations.

    Cons

    Poorly managed, unorganized, shifting priorities and focus have resulted in numerous layoffs...i've been laid off once in 2007 and have had 6-8 different bosses since then!
