    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Medtronic full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Multiple opportunities to grow - across teams and geographies
    Valued as an employee
    Ethical and compliant
    Self / personal development opportunities

    Cons

    Complex structure
    Difficult to get job done at time, specifically when dealing with teams across geographies

    Advice to Management

    Vision and plans to be percolated down to the lowest level
    People and teams not working in sales contribute immensely to company's growth - they deserve to be appreciated and rewarded as well. Should concentrate not only on 'Sales' but also on 'other Achievers' - people who are not in the frontline need to be valued.
