    Pros

    Very ethical and open to all types of people. They have support groups for all types of ethnicities and identities as well as a breastfeeding/pumping room. And once I informed them of my depression they gave me helpful info for support and provided a certain amount of days for mental rest if needed.

    Cons

    Not really any cons I can think of. It is a call center so you might have to deal with upset customers but they actually have a reason to be upset, diabetes.

    Pros

    If you're looking to enjoy seeing your coworkers every day, this is the pace to be. A very grass roots environment - there are great personal and professional development opportunities (talks, employee resource groups, etc), often sponsored by your coworkers, and people take bike rides and go on walks together before, during, and after work. Most of management cares about your development and will work to provide Medtronic sponsored opportunities (trainings, conferences, etc). It's up to you to take the initiative though.

    Cons

    Resourcing, resourcing, resourcing. You have one person doing the work of two sometimes three people. It can be addicting but people burn out. And parking is an issue.

    Advice to Management

    Empower more of your employees to make decisions so we don't have to hunt down upper management as often. And increase communication regarding high priority projects and de-prioritized projects)

    The payment is pretty low
