    Pros

    Globally its renowned , Leading Medical Device Technology company,globally led by the better leadership team. Better benefits for the employees. Take care of the employee safety and good culture globally.

    Cons

    Medtronic India is fully Partial management by eadership, Respective team Director /Leader is not recognizing the right performer or the achiever who ever he likes he will awarded. Career & Development will be only in discussion & Paper not get implement. The leader will get his own development but the team will not grow. India have boss culture not people oriented culture.HR is not supportive to Employees. Only for party and fun.. No clarity on the eligible criteria for Awards and Career discussion from HR..

    Advice to Management

    HR need to active and work on the career development . Leadership need to change.
    Career opportunities to be given. Field working team members efforts are not appreciated or recognized rather the team director/ leader takes credit. And Top management should remove these type of directors/Leaders ,Then culture will grow ,employee will be confident on leadership...
    CTC is equally given ,HR need to improve no efforts taken market correction.
    Only the Directors get their financial benefit not the ground person

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Medtronic full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Flexible Timings ( Depends on Manager , not so great with the recent QA Manager who needs skills to talk to people )
    - Leave Policy
    - Most of the projects are into SAP Testing and Support

    Cons

    - Lot of politics
    - Lack of Recognition
    - Different policies in QA team as compared to the usual ones
    - No Scope for improvement in QA as most projects are with vendors and they lack in bringing them inhere
    - Food is not that great ( one small cafeteria and limited options )
    - Although its a product company , initiatives are taken to make it operate like a service based organisation ,
    - HR is hardly available and they listen to the managers

    Advice to Management

    Please bring in good managers who have experience in product companies and know the culture and process, not anybody just because they have more experience.
    Please see the problems with team members at ground level
    Try to bring in more work from vendors and US rather than insisting people to do junk work.

    Pros

    R&D office, good way to learn the in and out of product development cycle

    Cons

    1. productivity is measured by number of hours. People who stay late will be encouraged. But stingy to book cabs if someone stays after 8.
    2. Exit process is too bad. They wont reduce the notice period for one day also but you have to literally beg to get your last month salary and experience certificate.
    3.

    Advice to Management

    Please try to reduce politics in office. And make the process fast and automate exit process like no due, salary credit for last month.
