I worked at St. Jude Medical full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

There were a lot of really good people there.

Cons

After the 2011 Q4 layoffs and management change everything went down. It was all about the $$$ and nothing else at that point.

Advice to Management

The employees make the company, treat them well, as you had previously, and it will pay for itself.

    I have been working at St. Jude Medical full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Smaller size company versus some other major players in the market, strong device portfolio.

    Cons

    Inability to deviate for project timelines when major issues arise that cause significant design changes, even when these design changes will improve effectiveness of product.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for product design team to actually design the appropriate device, versus hitting a time to market deadline.
