    I worked at Medtronic (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Really fun experience. I got to wear a diabetes pump, go to internship events, listen to weekly research and career motivation speakers, and do volunteer work.

    Cons

    They got busy after a few weeks while I was there so there was less communication after some time.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and flexible work environment. Beyond that, though, there's a meaningful mission working for Medtronic - we help patients every day and often times we get to see that first hand.

    Cons

    Compensation wasn't always the highest but they are getting better. Opportunities for advancement can be a little limtied.

    Pros

    *Competitive Starting Salary
    *Mandatory Career Development Plans
    *Flexible Hours
    *GREAT benefits

    Cons

    *Contracted for 1.5 years in the same position prior to being hired on - depending on the contracting agency, the base payment/hr is different for everyone, ranging from $17/hr to $35/hr.
    *There was a hiring freeze during the middle of the hiring process. Told that we would know within 2 weeks if we secured the position, but it ended up being 4 months.

    Advice to Management

    *More transparency with the hiring process
    *There is still a lot of tribal knowledge, even though they are trying to phase it out.

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

    Pros

    Great company to work for with excellent benefits. Superb training ground for medical sales.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is incredibly challenging. Also, senior leadership does not look out for front line reps. Upward mobility is driven by company politics, rather than merit.

    Advice to Management

    Emphasize merit when comparing applicants for promotion.
