    I have been working at Medtronic full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great flexibility in work/life balance

    Cons

    Division cant seem to get any new products out the door, poor project management and risk mitigation seems to be systemic. Health benefits offered are average (post Obamacare) which seems sub par when we once were offered Cadillac plans with no deductibles. Our families healthcare costs have risen thousands per year in recent years with the limited coverage plans offered now.
