    I worked at Medtronic full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Medtronic is one of the best companies to provide medical products in the world. They have great benefits and mostly good work ethics.

    Cons

    I created an unparalleled method to test and diagnose issues for the development of a large scale medical device. During this process my group had mandatory Saturdays. Above and beyond that regularly worked from home after hours, Sundays etc. Upon time for annual review any and all negativity was pin pointed, over done, focused upon. All extra effort not even mentioned. Boss hired friends, relatives, friends of relatives, relatives of his boss, friends of his boss even if they were unqualified and all got great reviews. This man was eternally pissed off, would even shout "I'm pissed off" from his cubicle, I was reprimanded for being too happy. I was reprimanded for emailing my ex-boss. Couldn't look him in the eye after that and he eventually fired me from Senior VnV Engineer position then called the police after I quietly walked out.

    Advice to Management

    Avoid management configurations where co-workers from other companies populate management levels. Management knows everything already, they don't need advice.

    I have been working at Medtronic full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good work life balance, competitive compensation, plentiful opportunities if one wants to explore different career options, a huge diversity of career options.

    Cons

    Sometimes too much politics, lip service to Diversity when it comes to promoting racial and ethnic minorities, old boys' network quite active in some areas, HR absolutely the worst I have ever encountered anywhere and they collude in unethical behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Make it a level playing field for non-Caucasian workers who have a much tougher time getting into people Management positions, or get internal transfers horizontally or vertically, and the HR does nothing.

    I worked at Medtronic as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work on projects you're interested in, intern's ideas are valued
