    Pros

    Company does all it can to live by it's mission: Alleviate Pain, Restore Health and Extend Life. Rare to find a company that so deeply embraces their mission. Deeply committed to giving back to the community.

    Cons

    Large global company faces the typical challenges: alignment across business units, communication and consistency and commitment to strategy. More engineering led than sales/marketing.

    I have been working at Medtronic full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Extend life and Allieviate pain — wonderful mission that is felt my most. The pay and benefits are excellent. Employees are encouraged to take risks and think outside of the box

    Cons

    Most management is sincere but there are a few pockets of managers who can make life gruesome. The organization of business units and functions is shaky, and cause confusion if your job is on the cusp

    Advice to Management

    Most managers seem sincere but there are some who make life hell. I would take a look at the Pulse survey and find the departments with the least participants, then take a look at those managers. Those employees are the ones too afraid to comment.

    Good for entry level without any experience

    Work as a contractor, so no opportunity to advance or be promoted. Spent a lot of time doing nothing because there isn't enough work to go around and management is too distant to realize that.

    Have a system in place to help with employee advancement. Constant hiring/spending freezes make employees anxious.
