I have been working at St. Jude Medical full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great people to work with.

Cons

- Lower pay compared to ALL other medical device companies.
- Not only is upper management disorganized, there is no defined set criteria (mainly due to the new director).
- Choose favorites without recognizing performance.
- Allocation of money is horribly spent by increasing temporary positions with an intent to use and fire after contract duration.
- Reporting criteria is archaic and is not abiding by modern CFR regulatory regulations.
- Job is highly stressful with minimal pay.
- Literally have to fake it to make it. I highly recommend finding another career opportunity elsewhere.

Advice to Management

INVEST in a unified database and don't work your muscle by hiring excessive workers. Stop choosing favorites and decide based on PERFORMANCE.

    I worked at St. Jude Medical full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Ultra lean teams mean that there can be a lot of opportunity to take on significant responsibilities/projects to make an impact. Generally, I didn't see a lot of micromanaging and there aren't a lot of layers to work through. Pay and benefits are good.

    Cons

    The culture is one of the most bizarre I've encountered and at times it is very unprofessional. Depends on where you are but avoid the Austin office and positions where you will need to work closely with individuals there ... a lot of aggressive and downright odd personalities that make work life unpleasant. At this writing, avoid marketing and academic affairs at all costs. It's a very negative environment with non-supportive, non-engaged and sometimes bizarre leaders. If you enjoy working in a collaborative environment with others who are professional, strategic and engage in critical thinking, you'd be wise to look elsewhere. I think you'll be unhappy at St. Jude Medical.

    Advice to Management

    You'll need to figure out how to fix the company culture and attract/place competent leaders who know how to lead and engage employees.
