There is good and bad

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
As for the good, Medtronic is an innovative company that does deliver good products to help the general public.As for the bad, leadership is definitely a "good ol boy network". Employees are underpaid and definitely unappreciated. Leadership is constantly going on Field trips all over the world. They stay in five star hotels, eat at five star restaurants, and have a five star excursions all while limiting the amount of paper and ink that employees are allowed to use to make a budget. If you are not upper management, do not expect more than a 2% annual raise ever, if that! Medtronic was a great company that has lost his valuable due to terrible leadership.

What is the best part of working at the company?The products are so innovative and life changing!What is the most stressful part about working at the company?The leadership. All the good leaders left and they were replaced by people who have never worked in medical devices.. look at the stock price..What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Good and bad. Depended on your team and leader. It got very bad after 2020 when MDT went woke..What is a typical day like for you at the company?Long and exhausting but I was a niche person so I had to be in everything.

A company that cares about its employees.

They take care of their employees. The culture is all inclusive. They encourage work/ home balance. They support overall health and wellness by having two 5Ks each year on campus. They have an on-site fitness center with daily group fitness classes as well as personal trainers. They have a global Cafe for fresh, nutritious, and affordable breakfast, lunch abs snacks. They have an on-site bank, Dr clinic, coffee shop, gift shop, beautiful campus with walking trails and a farmers market in the parking lot one day a week in the summer months. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the benefits of working for such a wonderful company. They are good to their employees, they give back to the communities and are friends to the environment. The celebrate everyone. They promote employee growth through tuition reimbursement as well as trying other roles and departments. They live by their mission and I felt immense pride and gratitude that I got to work for a company that does life saving work. My heart will always bleed blue for Medtronic.


Benefits, fitness center, lunch café, caribou, bank, doctor, company picnic, all inclusive

Above average pay and benefits accompanied with a bureaucratic gridlock and weak leadership

In my experience the pay, benefits, and work life balance where above average. I found the company to be incredibly disorganized, lacking in meaningful leadership, and access to accurate data is near impossible. Getting work done is incredibly difficult. The systems aren't accurate, there are too many SOPs, and there is regularly a reorg.


Pay, benefits, work life balance


Disorganized, lack of meaningful leadership, getting work completed is extremely challenging.

The best company I have ever worked for in all my years of being in the work market.

What is the best part of working at the company?Medtronic cares as much about its employees as it does delivering on its mission of improving patients lives. Fantastic benefits and they are the nicest bunch of people I have the benefit of working with.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Turn around times, getting devices to the field for cases. I'm in supply and it is a challenge making sure our field people get devices they need and on time. Inventory constraints since covid prove the biggest challenge.What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Fast paced but everyone works hard and the partnerships with different departments is great. My department feels like family and we truly help each other. No egos here.What is a typical day like for you at the company?I'm at a computer all day, I work from home, log in and just start answering emails, manage rep inventory, and make sure product gets where it needs to go and get it there on time.

Easy enough

Working here was pretty simple. Clean room environment, and it’s enclosed in case you’re claustrophobic. You work with microscopes for 8 hours to rip to your vision. Good entry level job for those in need of experience.

Stable job with little growth

Great place to make an above average salary and have a work life balance. If you have ambition, you need to be politically skilled or you will not be promoted.

good place to grow professionally

overall, a great place to work and grow professionally. It's too bad our jobs are being shipped over seas due to a cheaper labor... If not, I would have retired from here.

Great people at field level management and reps. Real.

Poor guidance from top of company. Medtronic used to be an A company. That was in the 90’s. I retired this past year. No longer recognize it. Poor strategic choices in direction and not listening to surgeon needs are common. Medtronic management does what it sees as best business practices, not what customers see as great choices. I had a good 25 years at Medtronic and am grateful. 10 years ago it was 5 stars.

Great company to start med device career

Sales rep for 8 years in CRM, competitive and room for growth but pay can be stagnant and bottom line is always what counts. Good company culture, below average work/life balance. Patient focused business unit and technically strong and cooperative support staff is what makes the job worth it.

Fast paced call center job

Technical support is a fast paced role. Training is information overload. Intimidating at first, but once you’ve hit the floor, everything becomes easier. Great employee benefits 🙌🏼

Solid Company

Good company overall, but could improve in the area of making employees feel valued. It was not uncommon for senior leadership to recognize the efforts of a few instead of the team as a whole.

Terrible workplace

There is a Heavy workload at all times, there is very little to almost no support, we are micromanaged, consistent changes being made without any true instruction/guidance
Was this review helpful?


There are a lot of training (profesional and technical) and networking opportunities (ERGs, events, etc) at Medtronic. Medtronic also has a great work-life balance. However, Medtronic has a lot of organizational restructures constantly. Also there isn’t clear communication on what is required for promotion

Ok place

I worked here for almost 20 years. Supervisors and workers came and gone. After leaving because we closed up I realize we had a great place to work. I wish we never had to leave but now out in the real world jobs suck and people sick. Medtronic had great supervisors and mostly great employees. I miss it.


Great environment.
