      Pros

      Amazing products, amazing people. They are patient focused and celebrate creative and out of the box ways to help patients get access to technology

      Cons

      You often work in Silo’s with very little visibility to the bigger picture. They are also not open to seeing how you may have developed over years to suit a different role. You are pigeon holed as a certain personality and it is difficult to change that perception.

      Advice to Management

      Have a look at how your employees have grown and developed and try to put aside preconceived ideas of who they are focus on developing their strengths.

      Pros

      Good company philosophy, and reputation. At global level, the company is heading in the right direction and the CEO has a great strategic outlook for adapting to the healthcare system of the future.

      Cons

      With regards to the Australian/NZ region, the company has lost the plot. Medtronic ANZ is culturally and strategically in a state of free-fall. Upper management is busier with internal power struggles than leading their businesses. Middle-management is a battle ground for personal motives that suppress company and healthcare interests. Front-line employees bare the brunt of the previously stated issues with increasingly...

      Advice to Management

      Put down your personal agendas and powerpoint presentations, review your staff for true cultural behaviors, squash those who are self-promoting, decide whether ANZ is a sales or operations company, and reinstate the external focus that is one of the tenants of the organization.
