    I have been working at Medtronic full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The mission to improve access to healthcare globally is something we are all very proud to work hard toward achieving. Great people, fun atmosphere, big city salaries in the North Bay. The CEO is fantastic - he is a very clear communicator of the mission and is truly dedicating his life to achieving it.

    Cons

    A lot of reorganizations and constant changes to the focus, mainly due to a lot of acquisitions - which is great, but makes it tough to know what your future looks like. I've had 3 roles in less than 3 years.

    Pros

    Prior to acquisition by Medtronic Covidien was probably the best company I worked for in my 30 years as an IT professional. Great leadership, treated employees very, substantial benefits. Some of this has transitioned to the new company, some not in my opinion.

    Cons

    Generally a lack of sufficient personnel to perform tasks so there were a lot of long days and sometimes weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Management decisions are problematic causing excessive costs and slowing process changes needed to a crawl. However willing to take large risks.
