    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at St. Jude Medical full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Decent benefits. Other than that none. They expect work to consume your life. No camaraderie and people do not care about others. Sales reps are ruthless and will screw your over to get ahead. Sales reps lie and cheat just to makes sales

    Cons

    No ethics. Use clinical studies to promote sales which is illegal. Good ol boy network that if you aren’t a part of then your career will never progress. Don’t care about professional development or human capital management. Upper management is afraid of challenging sales team and sales team runs the company.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with respect and develop them. Promote those that deserve it and create a culture someone can be proud of. Need to drain the swamp there and get rid of a lot of upper management that is worthless

    I worked at St. Jude Medical full-time

    Pros

    Stable industry, competitive salaries, free coffee

    Cons

    Management/Schedule driven, Engineering teams sometimes seem to be more nuisance than necessity. Upper management disconnected from operations logistics. Questionable promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Find out what's really involved in the engineering world the company depends on. Less focus on stock price and meeting deliveries and more on enabling meaningful change.

    I worked at St. Jude Medical full-time

    Pros

    As I stare at the screen, I am trying to come up with some. Products are decent

    Cons

    Extremely poor management, unethical in how they deal with product failures. Take way too long to get information to physicians about problems with a product. Do not care about the people in the field. Very top heavy. Upper management (everything above field reps) is more interested in their income than they are the workload on their reps, the success of the organization and the proper treatment of patients. How they handle the latest CRM battery issues is nothing short of disgusting. I left because of it.

    Advice to Management

    Get your head out of the sand and you mind off your wallet. The well being of patients depends on it. Advice to job seekers...look to Medtronic. St Jude is not where you want to be

    I worked at St. Jude Medical for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great technology platform and cutting edge research and a fantastic technical service team. Pays very well, especially to young, out of college employees.

    Cons

    Now having experienced working with strong people leaders in other fields, my time with SJM proved to have weak professional development support from upper management, especially for females. Expressing desire to explore different avenues within the company frequently fell on deaf ears, or was met with resistance and chastising. There was also a serious lack of communication between HR and the employee, and certainly no confidentiality between those two parties. Not sure on whose behalf the HR team works... the employee or the employer?

    I worked at St. Jude Medical full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very good team members, especially some that have dedicated many years working on improving products for SJM. Many employees believe in the work they do and what it provides for the healthcare community.

    Cons

    There are many circles within the workplace and departments are segregated. Growth is hard within the firm due to leadership staying in upper management roles until retirement.

    Advice to Management

    Truly understand various team roles and the time/effort they put in to push out deliverables.
