Pros

Plenty of extremely smart people makes it a great place to learn and grow. Company culture emphasizes work-life balance and the trust that you will get your work done. Everyone is extremely committed to the mission and to helping improve peoples' lives.

Cons

Medtronic has the interesting practice of training all of their interns to go off and work for St. Jude and Boston Scientific; they do not hire anyone out of college. Frequent layoffs. They do not invest in young talent at all, which seems like a bad strategy for long-term growth. They do not have any loyalty towards their employees, everyone seems expendable.

    I have been working at Medtronic full-time

    Pros

    - I was able to work on projects from a different business unit as it was a growth opportunity for me and my manager encouraged me.
    - Office culture is friendly
    - Good time off policy (3 weeks for employees 0-4 years)

    Cons

    - Compensation is very low as compared to similar job titles in other business units
    - The R&D group doesnt look very harmonious and there always seems to be behind the back bitching. Attrition rate is high
    - A particular project manager employs divide and conquer policy.

    Advice to Management

    Look into people compensation to stem the rate of attrition.

    Pros

    Benefits, employee friendly, decent pay.

    Cons

    Can be very political. Uses a lot of contractors versus investing in building employee base and loyalty.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees they have great ideas.
