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

    Pros

    Opportunity for development growth (many different businesses and global locations)
    Meaningful mission
    Flexible work hours
    Smart and talented employees
    Great benefits

    Cons

    Medtronic is a very big company serving many different geographies in a strictly regulated environment - all of the governing procedures can be confusing especially for people in roles serving multiple business units, geographies, etc. However, the company has a good internal learning portal and communication dissemination system.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and make an effort to communicate in a way that most employees can understand easily.
