The work Medtronic gives you is very challenging, but this is not a company that provides fair maternity benefits.

Women at Medtronic lead in engineering, sales and across the organization. The Medtronic Women's Network is a powerful force for empowering women to realize their career goals.

You have to work around the clock. Although they are flexible, it comes with a price. Our motto was "Do More with Less".

    It truly depends on the department as some are more forward than others.

This review applies to the entire company but my experience is in the MITG AST group. Women are penalized zed for being assertive. Only 2% of women have advanced into a sales management position. Yes, I said TWO percent. Women are paid less than even lower performing male counterparts as well.

    You need to have a great boss or work as a sales rep where the hours will vary and you can adjust your schedule somewhat.

Pay equity depends on location and site. Policies not consistently applied and females are penalized for being assertive. Assertive guys get promoted, assertive females get labeled the b word.

This company will work you very hard, but they will reward you for your work. Policies tend to be supportive for women and minorities but it all depends on your manager. If you work for a good manager, and work hard, you will have advancement opportunities.

    Less bureaucracy; we are going through a large integration right now and that makes it tricky sometimes.

Leadership is notably male-dominated, particularly in the technical groups. Nonetheless, the company does visibly promote diversity in the workplace. I haven't yet picked up on any problems that would hamper my advancement. I have not gone on maternity leave so not sure how that would affect my standing.

I think depending on location/site, the company can be very diverse. Overall I think women are treated fairly. It does goes more homogeneous the higher up you go.
