    I worked at Medtronic full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Only salary is good in this company and basics facility ie hotels stay and meetings are good, other than no extra benefits

    Cons

    No time to get your personal needs and family, not even Sundays. Instruments are not up to mark, just fools the patients ,, that the device is good, simply an example, a Continuous Glucose Monitoring device shows blood glucose level 180 , but if u go for lab test at that time the reading will come 120-125 , even the sales person doesn't have any words to say which is correct reading, Even the working area of sales executive is very big ie. half of Delhi and complete haryana

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    think that how to get the accurate device for glucose monitoring devices, otherwise there may be some hectic problems
