This company is well known, and because of that I thought highly of it. However, no matter the amount of work you put Into your shift it is nearly impossible to be promoted because of the volume of employees. I’ve worked with individuals who were level two assemblers after ten years. That’s right ten years and no management or supervisor offers.
Worked here over 10 years. Was a great place with good benefits. Location was close to home. But when a company grows, the company and people change. Definitely are a variety of skills to gain from the company.
It's hard to gain a foothold in the culture. I was brought in during the 1st round of re-establishing a supervisory position in 2016. The group of incoming supervisors received 2 weeks of training and discussions about expectations. We were expected to be team leaders and change agents. This was great but the reality was that, in my case, the team initially consisted of 30 direct reports that quickly grew to 55 (including temporary workers. This quickly became a difficult leadership experience requiring the use of multiple new and difficult to use electronic systems including a time clock system that took employees months to get comfortable with. The supervisors were also required to sign-up for many non-value added, culture enhancing events that took us away from our primary jobs. We were also required to drive changes to increase efficiency of our lines. Unfortunately, I did not have the time because of the many reports and change was very difficult do to already establish and a deeply entrenched culture of "this is how we do it". I hope things have changed but based on what I currently know about the state of management, I don't think they have.
The opportunities only exist if you're fortunate enough to have responsive direct leadership. Unfortunately, changes in leadership among Supervisors can occur on a yearly basis in some value streams and the ones that remain are more motivated to retain the status quo rather than develop new innovative leaders. Production floor personnel are the best that I have worked with in the industry. They are truly subject matter experts who are passionate about the quality products that they produce.
Lack of training for proper procedures, too many cooks in the kitchen. Managers usually ask advice of 1 team member and that team member abuses the "ranking". Great company with great benefits, great people but as the saying goes one bad apple and this case that one apple has pretty much made everyone else feel very inadequate and belittled with out the management really listening to the experienced team members. Growing pains for this dept.
Environment is conducive for work, friendly people and less stress. The people are willing to train u and u have many other benefits like tuition reimbursements programs, and there are also other opportunities to go up to ladder in making ur dreams a reality.
The company has great benefits and a great mission but it is a fast-paced environment where it is difficult to achieve work/life balance. Ethical standards are not always followed.
Useful occupation abplications to society and arround globe. Enables easy skills to apply to life, business(es) as well as self. No problems with employee relationships. Using nightly and bi-weekly meets to ensure proper ergonomics in addition to supple productio(s), etc.
N/a, perhaps job locations
I learned and enjoyed so many things at Medtronic that I have not seen at any other companies I have worked. Their benefits was excellent, if I had not relocated I would still be at Medtronic. Best company to work.
Lunch is paid for by the company
I never witnessed their cons, just too perfect
I'm just an assembler II. I work the manufacturing line. Don't take this job if you want to sit and push a button, you are expected to work. They do offer many opportunities for professional development. Tuition reimbursement is decent. They offer coaching for resume building and professional portraits. Entry level positions are easy to move up in, however, if you want to transfer to a different department, it is very difficult to move beyond assembler II if you do not have the professional connections. Management tends to favor their "favorites". Where, if you become a favorite, you are fine, but if you don't work towards creating a friendly relationship with your bosses, it is doubtful you will be able to advance at all. I like working for this company. I'm not afraid to kiss-butt a little bit, either. Take on as many extra training opportunities and responsibilities as you can, and career advancement will be in your future-- if you last long enough.
I enjoyed working there. It was like my second home because the people are like family. As an assembler I, my daily work was to performs a variety of tasks ranging from repetitive to non-repetitive production assembly operations on electronic and/or mechanical assemblies and subassemblies such as modules, boards, panels, drawers, frames, and cables. Works from visual aids, method layouts, diagrams, schematics, process flow sheets, and written or verbal assembly instructions. Sets initial layouts, and uses hand and/or power tools, jigs, and saws. Makes continuity checks on work in process and completed. May conduct quality inspections on processing line in accordance with quality specifications.
Fun but a lot of work and goals to meet. Manager don’t often comes around. Maybe once in a month the most. The Supervisor and Lead do listen whenever there’s issue regarding work or family situation that would require a schedule change; least where I work.
Opportunity to pick up overtime if you love OT
