Those working at Medtronic are serving a far greater purpose than just earning a living for themselves. They are dedicated to making the world a better place for all of us.
Medtronic began 40 years ago with Earl Bakken, clearly a visionary in the health field. Though not a medical doctor, he is a man of empathy who saw suffering and dedicated his life to doing something about it through biomedical engineering in the fields of research, design, manufacture and sales of instruments or appliances.
Today, Medtronic is led by twelve executives, some of whom are medical experts and some are business management experts; all are dedicated to the same vision of empathy as the company''s founder. In 2007, the company was named by "Fortune Magazine" as being one of the Global Top 20 Companies for Leaders. Medtronic careers are there for future leaders and anyone dedicated to alleviating human suffering in all its forms wherever it exists.
Medtronic culture is not surprisingly innovative as well as devoted to its mission of bringing comfort and health to everyone on the planet regardless of their personal affliction. If you are fortunate enough to work for Medtronic, you will be working with some of the brightest in the healthcare industry. This and the work the company is involved with is perhaps the best of Medtronic benefits. But the benefits of a career at this amazing company don’t stop there.
Just as the mission at Medtronic is to further the health and well-being of all citizens of the earth, so is their dedication to their own employees. Besides being right in line with industry standards of compensation and benefit packages, they also offer serious training and development opportunities and flexible work schedules.
They offer Total Rewards and Total Health programs that include nutrition counseling, training for marathons and volunteering opportunities in the community where employees can learn new skills. Medtronic is truly cutting edge when it comes to appreciating and rewarding its employees in all the many areas of work within the company''s multinational environment. This is a company without interior or exterior borders.
