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

    Pros

    Benefits and rank and file people are great. Leadership is good at executive level but VP level is unmonitored and unchecked

    Cons

    Backorders are a constant challenge which undermines ability to meet customer needs w confidence and impenetrable boys network which allows bullying and verbal abuse.

    Advice to Management

    When an employee provides reams of documentation and specifics on unacceptable behavior from a leader, believe them and fire that leader. Accepting ANY bullying, verbal abuse, and discrimination undermines every value you stand on.

    Pros

    Working here helps to support medical technology advancements to help restore and extend lives.
    Salaries/Wages

    Cons

    Managers lack the skills to manage people, and this is acceptable. They are very afraid of making a 'career limiting' move, thereby making them afraid to do things differently, even after the pros have been shown to outweigh the cons.
    A great deal of internal 'clubs' and you need to do what you can to be a part of these.
    A lot of functions are being supported by contingent workers, and this is making it increasingly painful to do business internally.
