I have been working at St. Jude Medical full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great benefits, good people, good work-life balance.

Cons

Hired for R&D, but spent more than half my time at St. Jude performing other job functions (quality, sustaining efforts, not new product development). Process and paperwork are king. Management gets shuffled all too frequently, leading to a lack of consistency.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think things are going in the right direction now. Try to get something done before changing the management team again.

    I worked at St. Jude Medical full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Big company. Lots of opportunity. Good salaries and benefits. Products are the best in the market.

    Cons

    Terrible leadership. Little or conflicting direction. Lots of in-fighting creating an oppressive work environment and an atmosphere of distrust and back stabbing. Project approval process is convoluted, requiring signatures from multiple departments and divisions. All of whom have their own agendas. Nobody plays well in this sandbox.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This management team needs to be replaced.
