    Pros

    They are very high tech in their technology & growing fast and always recruiting. SOME people are friendly. 25 days holiday per year.

    Cons

    Cramped offices/Low morale. No restaurant. Poor facilities. Head office in the middle of nowhere. Each individual has to do their own franking of post including recorded delivary. You have to use up allocation of holiday over Christmas time - poor!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For gooddness sake get someone in the post room. I'm sick of breaking my back.

    I worked at Medtronic

    Pros

    Excellent training, average level of education/skills/competence among colleagues high, potential exposure to interesting projects

    Cons

    Large well run companies offer lots of positives, but none can escape a certain amount of political atmosphere. If you're after a big title to build your resume, you will not get it easily at Medtronic, but you will get good experience, better than others at other companies who have higher titles.
