    Pros

    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.

    I worked at Medtronic full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Mission-inspired work to help patients every day. Strength and reputation of brand is impressive. Solutions for patients transforms lives. Field teams enjoy a unique collaboration with customers unlike any other company I have worked for.

    Cons

    Little collaboration or opportunity outside of division. Work life balance can be extremely demanding. Frequent reorganizations/reductions in forces creates unnecessary politics. Experience and relationships with clinicians not valued.

    Advice to Management

    Frequent reorganizations of field teams diminishes customer loyalty and decreases sales results. Work with teams for better solutions as those closest to situations often know best response. Create more promotional opportunities from within instead of bringing in leaders from other divisions.

    Pros

    Medtronic Mission. Wide range of products and company encourages changing positions/locations to develop/get promoted.
    Provides access to personal and professional development. Supports volunteering.

    Cons

    Managers will hold mistakes against you; not a place where you can grow from failures. Everything must be successful. Known problems with diversity and behind industry standard of women in leadership positions (some attempts for programs to aid with this).
    Fiscal year ends in April, May is known for reductions in forces across the company.

    Advice to Management

    Get lower level manager buy in for programs - diversity, developing women, learning from mistakes and actually empowering employees.
