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

    Pros

    Good people who care about why they're doing what they are doing
    Ability to work in an interesting content area
    Solid pay after you've been with the company more than 5 years

    Cons

    ZERO/incompetent talent management, even when classified as LDRP or Hi Talent
    Management believes they can just review projects until they somehow magically coalesce into a business strategy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    leadership should own the vision rather than reviwing

    Remember the Mission. Be guided by what is bes for the patient and the rest will follow. Regain the culture where people were proud to be part of a team that changed people's lives.

    I worked at Medtronic

    Pros

    Excellent training, average level of education/skills/competence among colleagues high, potential exposure to interesting projects

    Cons

    Large well run companies offer lots of positives, but none can escape a certain amount of political atmosphere. If you're after a big title to build your resume, you will not get it easily at Medtronic, but you will get good experience, better than others at other companies who have higher titles.
