    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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look 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.

    I worked at Medtronic full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The people make the business. Most are hard-working, goal-oriented individuals who are also very well educated. The pay is competitive and the business continues to grow and reinvent itself.

    Cons

    Sometimes there are too many objectives to focus effectively on getting things done and they change frequently so you may invest time in certain objectives only to find the work product disregarded due to changing priorities.

    Current Employee - Undergraduate Intern

    I have been working at Medtronic as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    The business side does well to make their intentions as transparent as they can. The benefits and salaries are generous, and the culture is relaxed. The work is rewarding, especially when you hear about patient success stories. The people are passionate about their job. Because the company is so large, there is opportunity to change careers without leaving the company.

    Cons

    The size of the company means that most employees contributions are marginal in scope. The medical focus and regulation of company efforts can make development and other projects slow down significantly. Because the company is so large, the software is hard to change, and often out of date.
