    I worked at Medtronic full-time

    Pros

    Worked as a customer Service Representitive for 5 years. Great job, loads of scope to do more in the role if you so please, varied, Company has a great philosophy and you feel you are making a difference. Great team work

    Cons

    A lot of restructuring goes on. Sometimes back and forth from one way of working to another and back again. Nothing majorly disasterous though!

    "The Lonely Life of a Sales Rep"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Medtronic full-time

    Pros

    Big company and lots of job opportunities if you are willing to move. Company has a great name and has amazing products.

    Cons

    Big company but you have to move outside of Ireland if you want to progress beyond a sales rep role. The sales organisation is run from the UK and Ireland is often an after thought. Very frustrating as a sales rep.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes its hard to feel part of a great company like Medtronic when you are a sales rep. You work alone most of the time. Should do more team meetings and team projects where you have a chance to meet others within the organisation in the UK&I and in Europe. Very limited interaction beyond the other sales reps and even then its not really all that productive to your job and for career advancement.

    Less rules and forms, empower people!

    Pros

    Absolutely none ! Absolutely none ! Absolutely none !

    Cons

    They treat their employees like slaves, even worse than they treat their customers, and that's saying something ! When they took over Covidien they managed to destroy a really good reputation in less than a year, with poor service and unqualified staff: they fired all the experienced ones, I'm a rare exception. They regularly dip their hand into my pay-packet for almost no reason, don't care about employment law or workers' rights. THIS IS DEFINITELY THE WORST EMPLOYER I HAVE HAD IN MY 35 YEAR CAREER !
