Burn-out is inevitable

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Mainly it's do more with less, and it's easy to burn out. There are some great managers who care about those on their team, and support their growth. Only a handful are "in your corner". If one needs very much recognition, this isn't the place.

Cons

Wages are not competitive, or in line with cost of living.

Great team, Bad upper management

The team I was working on was fantastic and supportive. Occasionally I would run into standard large corporation BS, but the biggest negative was my contract (and several other contractors) not being extended or converted despite the operational unit drowning in work. The mid to upper level people decided that no new hires would be accepted and no contracts would be extended for an unspecified amount of time.

Good company, dislike the corporate side of things

Promotion seems less merit-based than it should be. The company culture is good, but some of the trickled-down company ideologies feel very fabricated to make people inspired... it's kind of easy to see through the corporate agendas in my opinion, but maybe I'm just cynical haha. The new CEO, Geoff Martha, definitely pushes inclusion and diversity to an extreme, to the extent where if you don't have a "diversity" metric, it almost portrayed as shameful. Also makes it harder to get a job with Medtronic if you happen to be non-diverse (for example, only one male was hired out of 12 engineers hired at the same time). My particular role strongly encourages learning new skills and networking throughout the company for potential next moves, which is great. Overall, it's a great company to work for despite some of the corporate shenanigans which have diminished the culture a little bit.

Pros

Promotes learning and development, lots of vacation time, lots of activities

Cons

Promotions aren't merit-based, pay is on the low end, in-your-face politics from company leadership

Compensation not competitive

Compensation is not in par with work load and pay can be better that way employees feel motivated .hopefully the management value the employees and their effort.

No work/life balance.

When you have to work overtime, just know that you won't have a life outside of work anymore. The benefits are decent which is the only upside. If you like overtime and dont care about work/life balance, then this job is for you. If you want a life outside of work, then this job can be a bit rough for you when it hits overtime season (depends on where you work).

Pros

benefits, occasional free lunches

Cons

no work/life balance, overtime

Feel like I belonged on day one

I worked for a chip maker as a contingent worker for 3 years and never felt about my job the way I do at Medtronic. Great place to work and having a great trainer makes all the difference in the world!

Pros

13 paid holidays vs 4 that I had before

Cons

12 hour shifts

Decent company, but be prepared for lots of red tape

Medtronic is overall a pretty decent employer. Good work/life balance, no calls at night or on weekends. I pretty much work 40 hours/wk (or less) and this is perfectly acceptable.However, the culture there is very inefficient. Many of the managers have climbed the ladder by being political and have little to no interest in the company's mission, or in anything besides their own career and paycheck. Promotions and pay seem to be more time based than merit based. If you're a slacker, you can spend your entire career here doing next to nothing and you will move up either at the same speed or maybe a year or two behind high performers.

Pros

Stable job, good benefits, great 401k match

Cons

Bureaucracy, not a great place for motivated people.

It was very challenging to work for Medtronic

Spent 16 years at Medtronic retiring this past fall. The first 10 years were wonderful. However, the last six years have been painful. Medtronic today is not the same company as before. One of the major frustrations was the dominating politics everywhere at every levels. Getting job done is becoming harder because of so many priorities every day. The weakest link at Medtronic today is the middle management.

Amazing people, motivating mission

Amazing culture with a true north. Great people and an earnest desire to do good. Opportunities for advancement in support functions can be limited but that’s to be expected in an org that manufactures.

Who you know

It’s all about who you know at this company. Worked there fifteen years, went to school, got a degree, applied for the supervisor position 4 or 5 times. Every time they would hire someone one of the managers knew from a different location or one of their click buddies at the current location. Extremely frustrating and felt let down after putting so much effort in that place for fifteen years. I will never go above and beyond for another big corporation again.

Pros

Good benefits

Cons

Low pay, under appreciated, bad management, weak HR department, no follow through on complaints.

Secure place to work, management is good. HR takes quick action on your notice. very helpful and straight company.

Good place to work. It's just the difficult timing 12 hour shifts. Few 8 hour shifts available. Very secure place to work for women even at night. I always find it secure while working at night shift. Breaks are paid.

Pros

It's very safe n secure environment to work in here

Cons

Just offers 12 hours, no 8 hour shifts concept

Great Work-Life, Highly Competitive, Lots of Dishonesty/Politics

Upside: Excellent work-life balance with leaders who support it greatly. Company does a great job of inclusion and supporting women, minorities, etc... at a high level. CEO is an excellent leaderDownside: Environment is highly competitive, with employees and leaders throwing others under the bus regularly to get ahead or to get out of "trouble". Lots of promises that never come to fruition. Leaders under tight budgets and try to do best but I learned not to trust what any of my 4 leaders told me.

Pros

work life, holiday break, benefits

Cons

leadership, culture
