    Pros

    This is one of the best companies I have had the opportunity to work. They offer excellent compensation and great benefits as well. I really like the amount of PTO we receive as well. Most years I have had time leftover to use in the first quarter of the next year. Scheduling is flexible as well, which is great for those of us with little ones.

    Cons

    The current Medical insurance package is expensive, but that's going to be there case almost anywhere you go. Overall I would say it's about average.

    Advice to Management

    Offer clear guidelines on how to get promotions.

    I worked at Medtronic full-time

    Pros

    Dedicated employees; Core Values truly followed by leadership; High level of integrity and expectations; Ample stretch assignments for career growth

    Cons

    Large company politics/beauracracy is inescapable at more senior levels but not any different than other large, global organizations; Job leveling can feel below job market, but opportunities arise out of stretch assignments; Work performance record is too demanding (over-emphasis on documentation as opposed to tangible development discussions) (perspective as a former department manager & employee)

    Advice to Management

    Stay true to the mission, remain candid with employees.
