    Pros

    None. You even have to use your vacation during shut down this is not fair. I hate that they will not address the real issues.

    Cons

    Culture is not welcoming. Lots of work more than you will ever be able to handle. Many people have left, team and management issues & people don't speak to each other. Very weird bunch! You will never get the recognition you deserve

    Advice to Management

    Recognize people don't be afraid to promote from within

    I worked at St. Jude Medical full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good balance between work and personal time (life).

    Cons

    There seems NO clear vision for the Software Dept. Certainly the morale in Sylmar, CA and Plano Texas has reduced significantly due to many layoffs and clear vision. I am sure the revenue is coming from elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management need to re-evaluate the balance between difficult work, product quality, and risk.

    Work is very simple. All you need to do is show up to work and be on time.

    Cons

    On a day to day basis, not challenging enough for me.
