    I worked at St. Jude Medical full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Life work balance was great with the company. My positioned allowed me to take advantage of overtime which I did. My manager was respectful but also transferred his stress from upper management to his employees.

    Cons

    The company was cheap when it came time to giving raises. My manager always told us that he was trying to get us more money but didn't was only able to give us a 3% increase. Funny when I told them I was leaving they offered me a 10% raise.
