Warehouse Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAAugust 14, 2018
I had an excellent experience at the Manufacturing plant (Dominican Republic), but far from that at the Distribution Center (Atlanta).

Mainly the job culture was not aligned to excellence in all facilities.

Core Team Operations Representative (Former Employee) –  CaliforniaAugust 14, 2018
The vision of the company allows for diversity in backgrounds as well as solutions. Teams are built continually to meet company goals. Downtime between projects can be maximized by continual learning, shadowing folks in other functions, and teaching others what you have learned from your experience. Overall, the organization is everything you make of it as long as you have good communication with your direct manager.
Pros
Unlimited opportunity
Cons
Self-management is optimal

Project Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Fridley, MNAugust 12, 2018
There are many different functions within Medtronic, so it is hard to give an accurate snapshot of the company. It is a great place to work, however. The staff and environment feels inviting, and they are fantastic at onboarding new employees. A typical day for the position I hold involves working with other functions of the company, answering questions, doing research and running the company's LMS system to ensure accuracy and efficiency for our clients.

Poor management, culture-separate environment, very less HR support, no training
Assembler (Former Employee) –  North Haven, CTAugust 12, 2018
The culture that has been developed through out years, has created very un-friendly environment and working aura. No to minimum trainings. No or minimum possibility to grow within. Management is very poor on, not really interested to make any changes. Very low quality oriented people, which is hard to believe that this is a company that suppose to be in medical devices industry! However, the company itself has great history and that is what still keeps the most of new people applying for the job within.
Pros
Nothing excited
Cons
short breaks, no proper sick leave, no proper vacation, long working hours, low pay, poor management, bad culture.

good place to work
Medical device assembler (Former Employee) –  Villalba Municipio, PRAugust 8, 2018
Upon starting my employment at Medtronic, it was very difficult as I had never used a microscope before. It took awhile to get used to focusing but once I did, I enjoyed the work.

Project Coordinator IV (Former Employee) –  Memphis, TNAugust 7, 2018
I found the environment to be well organized if not a bit stuffy due to necessity of meeting FDA regulations. This also promotes strict, rigorous a numerous training regiments. The personnel are professional but not encouraged to be friendly. Diversity at Medtronic is unmatched in my professional career.
Pros
company issued laps, autonomy, diversity
Cons
training requirements

Productive work place
Hardware and Software Test Engineer (Former Employee) –  Louisville, COAugust 7, 2018
Good working environment, salary and hourly rate for contractors. It was unclear how long my contract was supposed to last, and that made it difficult to have confidence in the job security, or at least knowing when to expect to have to start looking again.

Pretty good place to work
Material Handler (Former Employee) –  Greenwood, SCAugust 7, 2018
Decent place to work. Hours wasn't bad. Advancement doesn't happen to quickly unless you're on a buddy system with upper management. You get to bid for jobs but there is definitely no guarantee even if you're the more qualified candidate.

Going downhill
Assembler II (Current Employee) –  Brooklyn Center, MNAugust 7, 2018
When I started at Medtronic I was very proud to work there. I thought it was a great place.

Over the years they have really slashed the employee benefits. They halved what they were matching on the 401K. They got rid of pension. They changed the PTO and holidays system around which ended up shorting our available hours.

They focus on lean running operations. Which is good for business, but bad for employees. If there's a sudden surge for certain parts you'll be stuck working mandatory 10 hours a day for 7 days a week because the line was already at max output and the only way to make more is to work more hours.

Getting converted from a contractor to an employee comes with a small raise. Going from assembler I to assembler II comes with a nice raise. After that I hope you enjoy getting next to nothing as a raise. 2% raises across the board doesn't even cover the cost of living increase
Pros
Paid breaks
Cons
Everything else

Co-op Strategic Sourcing Analyst (Former Employee) –  Mansfield, MAAugust 5, 2018
Fun Place to work. Not a lot of diversity but the hierarchy is strong. Somehow a political work environment. Remote working is a plus. Overall it was fun to be intern there.
