Assembler I (Former Employee) – Plymouth, MN – January 15, 2018
produce the balloon for the catheter by scratching and blowing tubing at various sizes depending on size requested. Working at Medtronic was fun and exciting with a very friendly environment and co worker.
Great place to work, excellent management, treat contractors like real employees, collaborative environment with highly qualified employees that take pride in everything they do. I would highly recommend this company.
Senior Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Boulder, CO – January 15, 2018
Medtronic is a fabulous place to work. The people, culture and products are outstanding. Highly recommend this company. The most enjoyable part of my job was working with the variety of products in my bag. Everyone of the products helped a patient in some capacity.

Team Lead for Clinical and Infusion (Former Employee) – Fridley, MN – January 15, 2018
with complaint handling and the number of audits from FDA, there were issues with what was called "Work Life Balance". Oh the VP, Director and Managers had a work life balance. However my staff and I did not. It was about metrics and making sure complaint were processed. Yet they changed a system and pushed to have everyone trained and NO errors. I would on average 10-12 hour days and went home and worked complaint buckets that were to close to causing issues with metrics.
Medtronic cared if you had a degree, yet 90 % of the staff had no clinical knowledge as to how the products worked in the real healthcare world.
Complaint Investigator (Current Employee) – Northridge, CA – January 14, 2018
Medtronic is a good company with lots of great people. I worked long hours, was always productive and always willing to work overtime. However, I feel that employees are looked at as numbers. I never received paid vacations and by law only received 6 sick days per calendar year with a doctors note. My managers were great and did appreciate my hard work. However now that my contract will end soon they did not have the budget to hire me as a full time permanent employee which is the only reason I am looking for new employment.
Area Coordinator (Former Employee) – Tempe, AZ – January 14, 2018
High paced clean room environment. High expectations in doing job properly per specific work instructions. Lots of opportunities to improve your status in the company, opportunities to move up internally.
Engineering support (Former Employee) – Portsmouth, NH – January 12, 2018
This company was new to the industry in Portsmouth, NH and had very little managerial commitment to success within the medical device industry. The merging of two companies at that time had a very detrimental effect on employee coordination between two company goals and structure.
Front Desk Receptionist (Former Employee) – Plymouth, MN – January 12, 2018
At first going thru an agency I barely had training and most of it was self taught and management was OK, I feel like I was being taken advantage of because, I was young so they paid me less over the time of my experience they still did not consider changing my wage yet fired someone and gave me both jobs and didn't teach me how to do theirs and still haven't receive any advancement in raising my wage. But I guess that's what happens when you go thru an agency
Quality Analyst I / Project Coordinator (Current Employee) – North Haven, CT – January 11, 2018
A typical day at work consisted of making phone calls to customers of Medtronic medical devices and products which consisted of hospitals and medical centers throughout the country. Job was very laid back but was a temporary position so there are no benefits, vacation days, etc.
It was one of the worst places I ever worked the only plus was the pay. From the time I started I had a bunch of white people who talked about negatively treated me unfairly and refused to train me and when I complained about them nothing was done only was asked what I had done to make to treat me in such a way but no matter what they complained about me I was always reprimanded I had 3 managers in less than 2 years and none of them were willing to do anything about the culture although they claimed they wanted to. Me and other fellow black co workers constantly were degraded while doing a great job and given no credit or positive feed back while everyone else did what they wanted to do. Awful awful awful
Usability and Technical Communications (Former Employee) – Boulder, CO – January 9, 2018
I was lured to Covidien/Medtronic by the technical communications manager. I had permanent job at the time, and preferred not to go contract. The manager and his immediate sub both assured me that the department was growing and Medtronic would hire me. Foolishly, I only got their handshakes on that issue.
Five months later, due to lack of work in the budget in which I was hired, I was released, told "you were hired to document new product, and we don't have new product currently." Instead, I had been doing very good usability work and software documentation, but that is not what I was budgeted to do.
