    Pros

    Pay is ok as well as benefits but if Managment has its way that will be taken away as well

    Cons

    Management is very poor do not follow Medtronic mission, management bullies and talks down to employees and the worst HR personnel I have ever heard of

    Advice to Management

    You would not be in your position if it wasn't for the employees that actually make and manufacture the parts. Greed is not are mission

    Pros

    Gas card, car allowance, great manager

    Cons

    Not upfront about compensation and also no stability in the NDT role. They have two different roles doing the same thing but one role is getting paid almost 65% less

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together and do right by your saleforce. You have good people , but if you don't treat them right they will leave. The sad thing is most of you, use to sale, so you should know this.

    Pros

    Worthwhile mission. Stock price will continue to increase. Market leader.

    Cons

    Completely dysfunctional workplace. Incompetent middle management. Slow processes. Incredibly difficult to get anything done. Who you are friends with / kiss up to is more important than achievement/output. If you want to be successful here, make sure you spend time becoming friends with influential people rather than getting your work done. There is NO benefit to working hard here. Attrition is very high. Marketing division is a revolving door. No career opportunities unless you are brought in as a senior marketing manager or in LDRP program.

    Advice to Management

    LDRP program does not make people god. Treat these people harshly as you do everyone else. Look into why the engagement and inclusion scores are so low and DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT instead of just talking around it. Give opportunities to develop and advance. Stop pigeonholing your people so they feel there's nothing left to do than leave. Recognize those who WORK HARD and ACCOMPLISH work, rather than those who are simply friends with VPs and Directors.

    I worked at Medtronic full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great Pay, Awesome Benefits, on campus gym

    Cons

    cultural of blame, no accountability by management. Try and instill quality through mounds of procedures instead of best quality practices, Quality engineers are more concerned with grammar of procedures then quality of product. Use procedures and protocols to hinder progress and quality. Loads of management bullies, rife with some of the laziest engineers who hide behind their procedures to not do actual work and who only have one excuse "operator error"

    Advice to Management

    stop the cronyism at the MECC division. MECC was a proud and great place to work and in a few short years it has become infested with bad managers and engineers who got hired on the good ol' boys network.
