    I worked at Medtronic full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Medtronic is one of the best companies to provide medical products in the world. They have great benefits and mostly good work ethics.

    Cons

    I created an unparalleled method to test and diagnose issues for the development of a large scale medical device. During this process my group had mandatory Saturdays. Above and beyond that regularly worked from home after hours, Sundays etc. Upon time for annual review any and all negativity was pin pointed, over done, focused upon. All extra effort not even mentioned. Boss hired friends, relatives, friends of relatives, relatives of his boss, friends of his boss even if they were unqualified and all got great reviews. This man was eternally pissed off, would even shout "I'm pissed off" from his cubicle, I was reprimanded for being too happy. I was reprimanded for emailing my ex-boss. Couldn't look him in the eye after that and he eventually fired me from Senior VnV Engineer position then called the police after I quietly walked out.

    Advice to Management

    Avoid management configurations where co-workers from other companies populate management levels. Management knows everything already, they don't need advice.
