Too much politics and very little teamwork
SUPPLIER QUALITY MANAGER - Medical Devices (Former Employee) –  Northridge, CAAugust 28, 2016
Medtronic does care about process improvement and does promote its employees to higher positions from within due to their effort. It still lacks some process control capabilities due to its reluctance to hire good talents from outside!
Pros
Big company status
Cons
Too much politics

Ok place to work
manufacturing team member (Current Employee) –  Columbia Heights, MNAugust 24, 2016
Management only cares about numbers. Lower team members arent paid well at all. For a large fortune 500 company, to only give your manufacturing laborers a 2% raise every year which equals to be about .30 cents is ridiculous.
Pros
good benefits
Cons
make up rules as they go

Relaxed Environment but you are very replaceable
CONSULTANT (Current Employee) –  San Antonio, TXAugust 21, 2016
most people that work at Medtronic Diabetes stay at this company for years. its an easy job (any of them are). In order to make good money you have to sell your soul to the company and be at work many hours even if you are not working. There is little time for family working at this place. Medtronic can be a great work to place if you are only career oriented because management WILL notice that you are dedicated and it is easy to move up.
Pros
Great insurance, Great Vacation, decent pay, frequent raffles, frequent free food (if you work late)
Cons
no work life balance, could pay more

A very great place to work
Buyer/Planner (Current Employee) –  FloridaAugust 17, 2016
Medtronic is a very good company to work for. I am a bit weary of the changes that buying Covidien have brought forth. Medtronic is now becoming much different and a newcomer may benefit more from this style than someone who has seen it a different way.

Great benefits. Extremely team oriented. Plenty of social things to be involved in. Overall, a very moral company. Just be ready for a lot of bureaucracy.

I have learned so many new things which are how to cooperate with team and work accurately. ( measuring the parts by drawing) My co-workers are so nice and friendly. The most enjoyable part of the job is doing updated training.

Fantastic business casual atmosphere.
Training Coordinator/LMS Specialist (Former Employee) –  Northridge, CAJuly 25, 2016
Medtronic was the perfect example of a relatively relaxed corporate environment that was based around helping people deal with a life-threatening disease.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time there and would return in a heartbeat. However, the one caveat is their over-reliance on a rigid contingent workforce policy that leads to random job layoffs.

Make no mistake, if you do secure a permanent position at this company you will see why it ranks as one of the top 1000 places to work in the U.S.
