      Pros

      Great focus on the mission of helping others through medical technology. Senior leadership is fantastic- very focused on work/life balance and taking care of employees and patients alike.

      Cons

      Middle management doesn’t share the views of senior management on work life balance. They say the words because they are forced to, but their actions and the underlying tone is clear- if you put family or personal life before work priorities it will be held against you.

      Good company with interesting restructuring changes ahead! Proceed with caution....

      Pros

      Very prestigious and innovative global company with a deep history in the Medical Device sector. Great compensation, benefits, work-life balance opportunities and with a visionary new CEO at the helm.

      Cons

      Extremely matrixed legacy organization which created an atmosphere of 4 distinct companies in one and with competing priorities among them which often makes getting work among them quite difficult. Change to introduce new approaches does not come easy at Medtronic for this reason. The upcoming corporate restructuring announced recently will be among the largest in Medtronic's history and is likely to have layoff casualties as a result. Career advancement is also difficult and will be less likely with the major restructuring ahead Medtronic is a good proving ground to launch a career and which helps with taking talents elsewhere if needed and which many have done.

      Pros

      -No micro management -Great work life balance -Work from home option available -Understanding leads -Learning opportunities -Great employee benefits-Highest leave structure I ever saw in any organisation, Med Insurance is better than most organisations, Cab facility, Corporate sim for all employees, Fruits and food option in office and many more

      Cons

      The move to managed services was unplanned and the higher mangement seem to lack vision. High potential employees are not valued as much as they should be(unless ofcourse you resign). Overall it is a really good organisation and the downsides are totally manageable.
