Does Medtronic offer massages?

Pros

Good working hours, ok salary and benefits. Nice office with many treats like free breakfast, soda, water and fruit. In general nice people working there. Especially on the non-manager level. A good work place if you are someone who likes to just do your job without ever questioning anything.

Cons

Overall poor low level leadership. Most of the line managers are more of team leaders with no actual authority or power to impact. Probably got their positions thanks to their willingness to keep employee complaints from reaching higher level management. Usually a former team member with no prior management experience. It seems as the low level line managers really are team leaders given their roles to act as a punching bag both from top level management and employees. No authority to take any important decisions. Line manager are eager to throw their direct reports under the bus if needed. They will definitely not work for the employees best interest in mind. Working at Medtronic is like going back to kindergarten as managers will instruct you as if you were a three year old. Whatever you do, do not try to improve a process because it will be perceived as criticism which is not taken lightly. Any type of criticism will be badly received and can result in the employee being fired or just bullied into quitting. Back orders and delivery problems are a constant issue but employees are instructed to lie to customers. Not a place for critical thinkers or progressive people.

Advice to Management

Listen to the people on "the floor". Embrace people who wants to improve working processes and people who wants to develop. By only encouraging yes-men you will be left with people without ambition or drive.

Nice office with many treats like free breakfast, soda, water and fruit.
