    I have been working at Medtronic full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salary is ok, 401K is good.

    Cons

    Hard to take time off. everyone is overworked and there is no positive feedback ever. Mgmt. talks to you only if there are issues and they easily blame lower rank people on the team. Abusive work relationships. No respect. Very stressful environment.

    Pros

    Benefits were good. Medtronic has good health insurance. Work/Life balance was ok with time off (if you can get it).

    Cons

    Management and HR are beyond horrible! They turn a blind eye to unethical and morally repugnant behavior. Even with hard documented evidence they brush problems under the rug and pretend like nothing has ever happened. How they sleep at night is beyond me! Good people would stay if you cared or had one moral fiber in your body. HR isn't there to protect the employees, They are just around to keep Medtronic from a law suit.

    Medtronic doesn't care about their employees, only cares about money.

    Pay is mediocre.

    Advice to Management

    Deal with MAJOR issues! Over 3 employees left a territory because of one corrupt Salesman (who couldn't make plan at that) and all their testimonies and documentation fell on deaf ears by you and HR. I realize corporate America is corrupt, but what I saw from HR and you was unbelievable. Shame on you!!!

    I worked at Medtronic as a contractor

    Pros

    Good pay and good IT friends to work with

    Bad management and bad leadership, lots of changes that did not helped the San Antonio office. The boss was in Memphis and he was not a good boss, did not understand the needs for the SA branch.

    Good luck fixing the issues.

    I worked at Medtronic full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Breakfast was nice although the machines for food never worked .

    Cons

    The facility I worked at was very dirty I've seen people not wearing their mask when working I've seen people being yell at and discriminated against. I've seen bugs in the clean room where parts are being worked on I've seen people drop parts on the floor and pick it up very disgusting please please don't get your parts from here.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job at keeping the facility clean and fire HR rep I told her who dirty it was at the location in Minnesota and she did nothing but laugh.
