    Pros

    Flat out...I've drank the Coolaid...MDT is the biggest and best Med Device company in the world. Plenty of workplace politics that require managing both up and down. But that is part of the daily fun we get so well compensated for.

    Cons

    If you offer them blood they will take it. Finding a work/life balance is always a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course...keep growing , keep living the mission, keep restoring people to healthy lives.

    I have been working at Medtronic as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The work place was following the trend of shared space and open desk space. It was very easy to communicate.

    Cons

    As with any large company, it seems that internal politics and bureaucracy impede personal career growth and movement. It wasn't especially bad at Medtronic however

    Medtronic is a company that cares about their employees. They offer fair compensation, benefits and will look from with in the company to promote.

    Cons

    Medtronic customer service department is terrible. It's not good at all and all customers would agree. Majority of the time you can't understand the person who you're speaking with since it's based outside of the US.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some extra dollars and bring customer service back to the US.
