    Positive Outlook

    I worked at St. Jude Medical full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Friendly, Reputable name, Good benefits, Lots of socials, Pay is competitive with industry

    Cons

    Culture is more pharma, management is relatively inexperienced, product training lacks depth, the IT department is difficult to contact for help and the email directory is a jungle of previous employees

    Advice to Management

    Improve product training as it is currently too reliant on home learning and ensure social events don't exclude team members as this has happened in the past.

    Cons

    High staff turnover, tens to look at short term results and therefore plug holes rather than plan for long term stability

    Advice to Management

    Look towards 5 or ten year plan to create a stable workforce. Look at qualitative objectives rather than quantitative objectives. Reward long term employees

    I worked at St. Jude Medical full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good Heritage, Some passionate people, nice size (but getting smaller by the day), some opportunity in all the the changes if you can hang on and deal with the management. Interesting pipeline of products.

    Cons

    Terrible management - St Jude went from small to pretty big for a pacing firm in a few years,and it shows. No one there can operate a business of that size and complexity effectively. I have worked for some big players in the Healthcare market, and know what that should look and feel like. Not here. Amateur hour. There is a real sense of firefighting everything, and mortgaging business now and to hell with the...

    Advice to Management

    Not that they would listen. Sort your IT. Sort your strategy - find your roots again. Keep unnecessary spending down (I suppose you do now by sacking key staff), think mid-long term and rebuild, and don't believe your own hype -A bit of humility goes a long way. keep the very good management from AGA and shelve the team that has grown with SJM - they cannot do the job properly.
