"The worst place to work for, the management at the Joliet, IL location do not care about anyone but themselves, they will lie right to your face. They make you work almost every Saturday mandated and take away from your personnel time with your family, they do not care about their employees or trying to keep them, they would rather have a bunch of temp employees than regular, and they use the temp employees for 119 days and get rid of most of them and get a new bunch since they're hired on after 120 days, it is sad that the CEO cares about the employees and their families but the people in charge of the Joliet, IL DC do not at all, they look at us as just numbers, when I say management I do not mean the supervisors, they do try but they are treated like crap also and do not take their suggestions, it is the worst company to work for. I hope the CEO will see this and start making surprise inspections and look into the team running this location, they are a sad bunch and have a lot of unhappy employees."
"This company is a good company overall. However, this is not a good company for a human factors engineer. There is little room to move up and the manager does not understand the human factors role very well. The manager also avoids any discussion involving career development plans and professional growth opportunities. This has been the worst experience working as an HFE in my career."
"Good company to work for. Strongly recommended."
"Medtronic's unique patient-centered Mission and highly educated workforce provide both personal and intellectual satisfaction and stimulation. The culture is collaborative, the benefits generous, and the work life-changing; career development and learning opportunities are also abundant. Medtronic has a strong leadership team and clearly defined strategies for growth with the potential to change the future of healthcare around the world."
"Ok place to work for. Upper mobility is not common as it takes forever to get a promotion."
"It's a great place to start out. Leadership could use some work with better planning. Friendly people and amazing work environment."
"I've worked at Medtronic since 2006. The company has weathered some economic turmoil over that time including a recession as well as significant changes in the health care landscape. Overall the management has done a good job of managing the corporation. I'd say that one downside is that due to these economic factors the company is growing slowly while shrinking the number of employees, which makes it difficult for career advancement. The message is stay the course and things will get better, but when."
"I had worked at Medtronic for 9 years. The company had a good culture to promote learning and exploring. The management was generally very professional and managed personnel/project well. I also had good focus on customers and market. People are generally nice and easy to work with. The flexible work schedule was good for both company and employees. The downside is layoff, especially once the nice work is done. It is also not easy to let fresh air in."
"Typical American corporation. Treats its employees in the way typical American corporations do. No further elaboration needed."
"Company employs more than a 1,000 employees in PR. Good place to work. Very professional. Opportunities to grow and development available."
