(Winged ratings measure job satisfaction on scale of 1 to 5)

"The benefits are amazing and because the company is so large there is ample space to transfer or try a different division or area within the company. The disconnect with this company is beyond measure and hard to even explain. Essentially, management holds the key to any employees satisfaction and happiness in their job here and unfortunately, the manager you meet in your interview will likely change at some point. HR does not help and they are not there for you so always remember this before interacting with them in any capacity. Toxic managers are tolerated and always given the benefit of the doubt and almost always supported by HR even when it’s clear they are the problem on repeat. It’s just the facts. Medtronic culture is very cold, hard, and generates a permanent feeling of anxiety about job security. This is coming from someone who has worked there for 12 years. Everyday you’re worried you may lose your job and it’s because the reality of being a number (over 80,000 employees- everyone is just a number) and extremely replaceable- everyone is when working for such a large corporation. Lastly, don’t overlook the importance of being valued and appreciated when considering a future employer. It is extremely important and easy to push down on the priority list when you’re excited about pay or benefits and the status of working for a company you may have on a pedestal. Personally, none of the monetary benefits are worth the things you slowly give up to survive and succeed at this company and similar companies. Your manager can make or break your job so choose wisely and if your manager changes and you wouldn’t choose to work for them if they were the manager when you interviewed, don’t waste your time thinking they will change or things get better. Start your next steps for moving on whether it be transferring within MDt to another division or updating your resume, researching new companies and beginning the interviewing process because a bad manager is not worth the sacrifice of your mental health or happiness. Start making your moves and move along if you find yourself with a direct manager slowly making work more difficult than it’s has to be or should be because there are few things worse than a toxic leader/manager.

"It’s rewarding to be a part of a company that is making huge strides in the surgical field. The technology is cutting edge and has improved patient outcomes. Your experience at the company will be dependent on your role/department and your reporting manager though. There are some great managers and leaders here. If you are fortunate enough to report to one of them you will have an amazing experience. "

"Very political environment, which is to be expected at such a large company. Difficult to get work done due to the bureaucracy and the fact that management can't seem to make decisions."

"Stay away unless you like to be micromanaged by anybody who believes has a higher title than yours, or if you have to use HR don't expect any changes. If you like to be told one thing just to make you happy but it never happens. If you are ok with constant change ( daily changes with in the department ). If you like to be called out in front of everyone. they have no communication with in the leadership. This leadership has no idea how to run this department. "
