Their maternity leave policy desperately needs clarity and updating. It is very confusing (especially for commission based employees).

January 1970

Less than 5% of the Sales Leadership (Regional Mgr, District Mgr) are women! Over 80% of the sales reps are also men. This is a white male dominated company. Especially in the MITG- AST business unit. When you apply and interview for a promotion, you will ONLY be interviewed by MEN. You can be more educated, qualified and successful yet still be told you aren’t the right “fit” for a job promotion. Strong, highly qualified women are perceived as a threat in this company. Medtronic CEO claims to have a goal of 40% female leadership by 2020. There are no substantive actions being taken to make this a reality. There is zero support for this from the field sales leadership. HR says their hands are tied and they can’t “force” anyone to promote a women, regardless of how qualified.

    Maternity leave was reduced to 5 weeks. Plus, you now lose any commission on sales/orders that come in while you are on leave. I could not afford to take any maternity leave as a result. I only took one week of vacation so I wouldn’t lose my commissions. Could not afford it!!!

    Maybe. Opportunities presented to women depend heavily on your department and manager. Mid and senior management are predominately men. There is definitely a boy's club mentality. However, if you're attractive, career driven, and have a good boss, you'll do well.

It cannot hurt to work here because Medtronic is a reputable company with a great brand;however, depending on the business division I would choose wisely.

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".

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.
