Decent company

Working there was decent. Nothing yoo good or too bad. You dont take your work home with you, so that is nice. Advancement was dependent on who had to approve it. Usually they were pretty fair.

Exciting opportunity to leave your mark

A typical day at work would be creating software requirements for a web-based patient monitoring system and then writing test cases to verify said requirements.I learned to leverage colleagues' experience and be open to feedback.Direct management was very supportive.Workplace culture was relaxed and supportive but hard-working.Hardest part of the job was working with offshore teams and relating to upper management.Most enjoyable part of the job was knowing I had my teammates' support.

Pros

Healthcare, Xmas party, good rapport with other groups

Cons

Finding out that the project I worked on was moved to another site and I was laid off the same day.

Great opportunity Great place to work

It was without a doubt the best job I ever had. I left for a better position and of course more money. Money is not everything friendships and camaraderie is more important. If they would hire me back I would start tomorrow. Tom Brindamour

Medtonic is an amazing place to work

My time at Medtronic was absolutely amazing. My team and our Manager felt like a family unit. The workplace culture was relaxed and all inclusive. The most enjoyable part of the day was our mid-day power huddle.

Fun place to work, Free food for the employees

Lot of inspecting little item under the microscope. I learned that nothing should let a bad part go. See something say something. the production workers are all good people. the most enjoyable part is when we got free food.

Extremely fast pace, great employees

Met with staff to lay-out the day (15 min), what the priorities were for the day and briefly discuss future plans. Coordinated meeting with corporate, was the MITG lead for multiple projects. Management was good, as with any large there were "Clicks" The greatest thing I learned was that all people, whether they are staff or customer, they are all individuals and need to be treated as so. Culture was good, we had a very cohesive team, I ensured they were cross-trained as to not have any issues if someone was out. The hardest yet most enjoyable part of the job was the my department was the central hub for all of MITG's PLM work so all departments came to us.

Decent company

The benefits and job security was the best thing about this company, the management at the Greenwood location was the buddy buddy system and tended to make rules up on the fly that only benefitted the management, local hr tended to mess with your work life that caused less home time and supervisors played favorites
