Medtronic - Medtronic Irvine | Glassdoor

Great place to learn and grow your skill set. Plenty of work, you'll never get bored. Overworked and no work/life balance. Poor communication from top-down; Management at all levels cannot communicate the business needs and translate it into a business strategy. The company is terrible at R&D/new product development and other functions have to clean up R&D's mess. The company is big on do it quick and dirty and fix it later, which places a lot of burden of post-market/production teams. Slow career advancements; compensation and benefits are on par with other large companies. Doesn't match the amount of work or level of skill sets needed to work here. Build a better culture of communication from top-down. Seems like management all like to have their cliques and closed-door meetings but rarely translate that information down to the cross-functional core team members. Also, the GM makes decisions on a whim without taking in all considerations and fact. NVMB has the ability to change project scope with a flip of a switch, showing that they really don't know what they're doing. Continue reading >>

The company has some great life-saving products and very passionate employees. Neuovascular division (NV) Management is running the business into the ground. Very counter-productive environment.

There's so much potential but the leadership in Sales organization is awful and stalls great employees. Recently both East Sales Executive VP and West Sales Executive VP resigned due to unbearable leadership. Culture is not open to new ideas as the organization is run like a dictatorship. I hope other business units within Medtronic umbrella are run better. Great people are leaving. Create a better culture at Medtronic (Neuvascular). Remove the Sales Dictator and promote an open and productive culture before more great employees leave. Flag as InappropriateFlag as Inappropriate Good benefit package, even though insurance premium burden on employees are growing. Irvine, CA - Parking is a MESS. You have to park off-site which is 10 minutes away and they offer you a shuttle van. If you park on-campus, they DO TOW your car. Career Opportunity - no support, no $$ for training for career goals, whatsoever. Therefore, turn over rate is super high (ppl leave after less than 2 years), leaving more burden to whoever is left. Bad chain of events.. This is a Covidien site trying to merge to Medtronic. Then, Management needs to start think big, value their own people, make effort to keep them instead of treating them as expendables and just pushing the business goals on whoever people are left here.

Covidien Reviews In Irvine, Ca | Glassdoor

I worked at Covidien full-time(More than 3 years) Will learn a lot in this fast paced environment. The devices are cutting edge and product development is very exciting and innovative. Your learning will come at a high price. The mid and lower management of this department provide little to no guidance and have the audacity to ridicule and blacklist those who stumble up the learning curve. There is no professional development and absolutely zero chance of advancement unless you are among the privileged few. Management is self-absorbed, immature and inept. They are primarily focused on their own career goals and the way in which they are perceived by upper management than on developing and leading their staff. 5 resignations in the past 2 months - hopefully they change their ways. But highly doubtful. Open your eyes. Take a hard look at yourselves and accept that you are the problem. You are the only remaining constant and cannot blame the "inadequacies" of former employees for leaving your department. (i.e., she wasn't a team player, she couldn't keep up with the pace, etc.) You are the reason why so many people have left. Take ownership of your inadequacies and fix them. I have been working at Covidien full-time(More than a year) Summer hours. 4 weeks of PTO. Young, friendly, energetic group of co-workers. Employee stock purchase program available. Ample opportunities for experience and growth if you are favored but only to a certain extent. Parking sucks. 401k matching is based off of the performance of the company. Management does not care about their employees. If you are not well-liked or favored by management, there are no opportunities or room for growth. Managers of all levels are ridiculously disrespectful and immature. High turnover rate. Do not expect to lea Continue reading >>

Medtronic Reviews | Glassdoor

I worked at Medtronic full-time(More than 3 years) Medtronic is one of the best companies to provide medical products in the world. They have great benefits and mostly good work ethics. I created an unparalleled method to test and diagnose issues for the development of a large scale medical device. During this process my group had mandatory Saturdays. Above and beyond that regularly worked from home after hours, Sundays etc. Upon time for annual review any and all negativity was pin pointed, over done, focused upon. All extra effort not even mentioned. Boss hired friends, relatives, friends of relatives, relatives of his boss, friends of his boss even if they were unqualified and all got great reviews. This man was eternally pissed off, would even shout "I'm pissed off" from his cubicle, I was reprimanded for being too happy. I was reprimanded for emailing my ex-boss. Couldn't look him in the eye after that and he eventually fired me from Senior VnV Engineer position then called the police after I quietly walked out. Avoid management configurations where co-workers from other companies populate management levels. Management knows everything already, they don't need advice.

Medtronic Interview Questions In Irvine, Ca

I applied online. I interviewed at Medtronic (Irvine, CA) in February 2017. I had applied for 39 Medtronic positions specifically before getting a c HR level call. 1st round was with HR and they asked the general basic questions. I was well prepared including details about the division, stock market, company acquisitions, products, impact to society, how i fit best for the role, why i am the best candidate, salary expectations. The HR touched upon almost all of these plus few questions like : Why medtronic, why quality ? where do you see yourself in 5 years? Why should we hire you? why are you looking for a change?relocation? Specific resume questions on a high level. This was followed by a Round 2 with hiring manager. I sent HR thank you email and was immediately asked for dates for next round. Here more in depth details about all my work experiences was asked. I was asked technical questions related to my work. Lasted for about one hour. Sent a thank you email and in one week heard back from the HR about on site interview. A team of 5 interviewers (management level 4, senior engineer 1) conducted interviews.The interviewers mainly covered technical experience, scenario questions, brainstorming with team. I would rate the difficulty level as 3/5. I was able to answer all the questions . The interview was held on a Friday and I heard back on Monday that they are ready to hire me. Continue reading >>

Medtronic "no Work Life" Reviews | Glassdoor

- High margins, great products that save people's lives - Great location (although parking is a big issue) - HR function is non-existing in the organization. Issues that should be solved by HR is continuously pushed to managers or remain as is ... - Working managers who do not know how to lead and develop people. There is no management training. Managers are not held accountable to train and build their teams -No work-life balance... perception matters more than actual productive work - There is 1/2 the workforce that works hard, and the other collects the paycheck - The executive leaders have so much ego; they do not want to be open and transparent with their people. They keep the distance from employees - Talent development and retention is a joke. The performance review activities are just "check the box" activity. Managers are so overworked that they do not have time for it. Employee engagement and morale is low. No opportunity to get promoted internally, they always find talent from outside - There is lack of investment in continuous improvements, almost every project is under-resourced and gets nowhere. There is lack of focus - Some poor acquisitions, poor integration, and execution of strategy The people I work with are excellent to work with (but just overworked). There is no work/life balance in the Diabetes division. Leadership expectations are unrealistic, they don't have enough people to do the job, and they have no boundaries. I'm work 60+ hours a week (exempt) and it is still not enough in their eyes. I get calls on the weekends, holidays, and on my vacation to log in to work because of some emergency, last minute change, or not enough personnel to do the project. In addition, I have NEVER received a recognize thank you card from my current boss (of over Continue reading >>
