    I have been working at Medtronic full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The mission to improve access to healthcare globally is something we are all very proud to work hard toward achieving. Great people, fun atmosphere, big city salaries in the North Bay. The CEO is fantastic - he is a very clear communicator of the mission and is truly dedicating his life to achieving it.

    Cons

    A lot of reorganizations and constant changes to the focus, mainly due to a lot of acquisitions - which is great, but makes it tough to know what your future looks like. I've had 3 roles in less than 3 years.

    Pros

    Good work-life balance
    Friendly people to work with
    Competitive salary and benefits

    Cons

    This is hard to answer, but since Covidien acquisition I would have to say lack of direction. This is no one's fault, just the nature of large corporate mergers.

    Pros

    Medtronic is a great company. They live and breath their mission statement in a very positive manner. They value all of their employees, partners and customers. It is a larger company with outstanding benefits and opportunities for growth one of the best industries around.

    They are a very large company and they do a lot of acquisitions which results in constant change. They experience many of the typical problems related to this type of an environment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the mission in focus. Continually evaluate people managers to keep their employees informed and motivated to avoid morale issues.
