    Devices for diabetes are not up to mark and very costly, not made for middle class people and recurring cost also being

    ABE (Former Employee) New Delhi

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

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Number driven company

    Sales (Former Employee)

    Pros-Good Company, Brand Leader in Medical Devices.
    -Strong Mission
    -Good Products.

    Cons-Management too busy in chasing numbers
    -No employee career road-map and development plans
    -Only sales number driven company
    -No human values and work-life balance
    -heavy partiality
    -Lack of motivation

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook into the ground level of the employee's real problems instead of just listening to the leader. Identify individual's talent and groom them in their areas of improvement and STOP blamming for non-performance.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Company

    Vice President (Current Employee)

    ProsExcellent technology and I work with great people.
    Mission is very powerful and everybody understands and supports it.
    Phd Bakken founder is still alive and he is an icon.
    Great compensation, benefits, medical , the works....
    Very international but still learning how to become global.
    The CEO has brought the stock up, great job there.

    ConsMinneapolis Politics and every Division is like a different company.
    Worst culture in CRDM, nothing moves and layer over layer, needs some change.
    The CEO brings people from the outside every time he has an opportunity to a VP level specially his buddies from GE, there is an abundant talent within.
    He shows very little emotion as a leader, so difficult to rally behind him, get a coach.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop bringing people from the outside specially GE, there are really smart people inside Medtronic.
    Stop the splitting of businesses and putting layers of VP's and stop squeezing the people below it is not fun and every year gets more difficult to energize people.

    Genuine effort to care for their employees

    Reliability Engineer (Current Employee) Minneapolis, MN (US)

    ProsI enjoyed the culture in Minneapolis. Everyone had pride in their work and it showed. There would be many mini special events that catered to employee health and well being.

    ConsThere was a tendancy for some groups to become somwhat cliquey, which took away from the experience being as diverse.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
