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

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

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)

I worked at Medtronic full-time for more than 3 years

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

Good employee development program

Regulatory Compliance (Current Employee)
Santa Ana, CA (US)

I have been working at Medtronic full-time

Pros- I was able to work on projects from a different business unit as it was a growth opportunity for me and my manager encouraged me.
- Office culture is friendly
- Good time off policy (3 weeks for employees 0-4 years)

Cons- Compensation is very low as compared to similar job titles in other business units
- The R&D group doesnt look very harmonious and there always seems to be behind the back bitching. Attrition rate is high
- A particular project manager employs divide and conquer policy.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook into people compensation to stem the rate of attrition.
