    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.

    I have been working at Medtronic full-time for more than 10 years

    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 imbalanced work-life ratios, with no relief in site as the funding cuts mean imminent restructuring. It breaks my heart to see after spending so long with this company, but the ANZ region just hasn't survived the Covidien acquisition with sound leadership intact who could maintain the culture and personnel to foster the right behavior needed. Additionally, HR became so understaffed and poorly led, that they were unable to keep a watchful eye on the internal politics. Ultimately, this has allowed many issues to embed themselves that will take a long time to rectify.
