    Pros

    Pays above markets, products are good and co name sounds a "big deal" but find out more before joining. Sales people will feel "pampered"

    Cons

    Weak people managers in sales teams, insecured leaders in SEA leaders blocking career progressions within Organization and undecided marketing efforts.

    Advice to Management

    HR and APAC LT please focus on substance over form, talent over good looking reps, reassess your talent "poo" esp when few nice finance leaving, the only decent marketer (though arrogant Lady) leaving and good Sales Managers left. It is obvious your better talents will start anew with new jobs but bad pp will continue to leech on the co as they can't find a better place or better pay to leave for.

    Pros

    Great place to work lots of opportunity to grow

    Cons

    Annual layoffs seem to be the norm of the recent past here, almost always ocurring at the end of the fiscal year. I got caught up in one in 2011 after 15 years of working at this company. Good news for me is I'm in a better place because it

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the little guy on the line. At the end of the day they make it all happen for the company.

    Pros

    Good benefits, nice staff, great distribution center that has is positive impact on Memphis and Distribution center doesn't seem to be affected by annual layoffs.

    Cons

    Yearly layoffs cause stress and low morale for staff. No long term job security. Employees are not valued for providing a positive outcome for the company mission.

    Advice to Management

    Stop major restructuring every 2 years. Value your good employees so the ones that don't get laid off will stay.

    I have been working at Medtronic full-time

    Pros

    There are many good people there.
    Most people seem to like the cafeteria.
    They have free parking.
    Sometimes they have free snacks.

    Cons

    They do layoffs a lot and most seem to be the oldest who are good people.
    You can't trust the executives to tell the truth.
