Medtronic was founded in 1949 in northeastern Minneapolis by Earl Bakken and his brother-in-law, Palmer Hermundslie, as a medical equipment repair shop.[10] Through his repair business, Bakken came to know C. Walton Lillehei, a doctor of heart surgery at the University of Minnesota Medical School. The deficiencies of the pacemakers of the day were made painfully obvious following a power outage over Halloween in 1957, which affected large sections of Minnesota and western Wisconsin.[11] A pacemaker-dependent paediatric patient of Lillehei died because of the blackout. The next day, Lillehei spoke with Bakken about developing some form of battery-powered pacemaker. Bakken modified a design for a transistorised metronome and created the first battery-powered external artificial pacemaker. Medtronic's old headquarters in St. Anthony, Minnesota The company expanded through the 1950s, mostly selling equipment built by other companies but also developing some custom-made devices. Bakken built a small pacemaker that could be strapped to the body and powered by batteries. Work in the new field later produced an implantable pacemaker in 1960.

Working At Medtronic: 1,798 Reviews | Indeed.com

Spinal Sales Consultant(Former Employee) Chicago, IL March 21, 2018 Working at Medtronic was kind of like working in the Marine Corps in that employees were expected to work non stop and travel up to 100% of the time for long periods. The only difference was that there was no camaraderie and very little support or help from management. It is absolutely a zero defect environment, so if you take a job with Medtronic you better plan on being a perfect employee. Small mistakes are punished remorselessly and of the 20 or so people with whom I was hired, only two remain employed there. There are great benefits, though. And it's a big company, well positioned to weather the coming healthcare crisis. Medtronic is a very well known company in the medical device industry and specialized in mostly cardiac products. Surgical Products Specialist(Former Employee) San Marcos, CA March 19, 2018 I really enjoyed working for Medtronic and my National Sales Manager was an awesome person. Unfortunately, after trying to sell the new device and having to make several engineer changes on the product, Medtronic decided not to move forward with this new product and closed down this new surgical division. They were very generous to us 3 sales reps and allowed us to get a new job before they stopped our pay. Continue reading >>
