    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.

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

    Pros

    opportunities galore, forward thinking, positive culture, fair compensation, great executive leadership, very aware of life balance. Great products. still small enough so that it does not feel like a mega corp.

    Cons

    inter divisional politics a challenge, struggling to keep up with growth - basic company services (HR and Benefits) understaffed. Processes and workflow still old school at times

    Advice to Management

    Converge and align (rinse and repeat)
