    I have been working at Medtronic full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Omar is a great leader. the company doing well - stable,

    Cons

    Integration pains, Not all BUs are the same. Conservative approach to moving jobs - unwilling to give you a chance in something new and would prefer to bet on outside hire

    Advice to Management

    Too conservative with job sharing and employee movement. This strategy will make you lose talented employees

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

    Pros

    You believe in the product ad what you are selling. Extremely rewarding and product knowledge is an absolute must to be successful.

    Cons

    I was from the beginning very disappointed in my supervisor. A true leader is engaged with her team. Sitting behind the desk without interacting with the team, left me with the impression if being disconnected, didn't care or was not interested in personal growth.

    Advice to Management

    Adding another layer of another position changed this from a sales position to causing back logs of customers that needed to be reached. It was a unfair to your workforce and terribly unfair to the customer. Running out of inventory was a complete disaster for everyone.

    I worked at Medtronic as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers, good people, there are work

    Cons

    the administration and engineering people think they are superior and operators don't exist.

    Advice to Management

    Do not demand quality if you do not treat people with respect, do not differentiate between the permanent employee and the temporary contracted staff. in case there are already payment differences, there are no benefits and even so, if there is a company party is a party only for permanent employees. when there is a super demand of products and you have to work more there if all are equal.

    Some leaders in Management need to be more open to listen to employees and be involves in the day to day hands on work that goes on

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employee complaints don't continue to be self driven and blinded by your goals. There are really good emloyees and loyal one at that who need your support

    Pros

    Large company, great opportunities for growth within the company, good pay and benefits

    Cons

    Seems to have lost sight of their mission, outsourcing customer service to other countries to save money, customer are complaining; however, mgmt doesn't care as it saves money, lost sight of caring about employees, getting too big, too much politics, lack of caring about customer service and their employees

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the mission, customers and employees are first then saving money
