    Pros

    Knowing that you're working for a company that produces advanced medical device technology that saves and prolongs life. St. Jude Medical has some of the nicest people I've ever met. On my first day, I was looking for a can-opener in the kitchen. Without me asking, a guy passing by introduced himself and asked around to see if anyone had one that I could borrow. I myself never did, but a lot of full-time employees often worked from home. Good balance of professional and casual company culture (business professional dress M-TH and casual dress on Fridays) Treat employees with respect and offer great benefits

    Cons

    They have just been acquired by Abbott Labs so there will be some changes and growing pains. But ultimately, it's going to yield a lot of opportunities.

    The great satisfaction to help patients improve the health and QOL. Exposure to the rest of medical devices industry, which is hard to get in

    Cons

    In comparison with the industry in SJM (now Abbott) Puerto Rico we have moré responsibilities, territories twice or triple the size and smaller compensation in the base salary. The turnover is high in big part for what I just explained
