For the fifth consecutive year, Medtronic ranked #1 for best medical device sales companies, and this year, it landed the top spot in the overall vote as well. The company is widely respected by the medical device sales community, seen by many as the “holy grail” of employment opportunities.
The Medtronic mission – to alleviate pain, restore health, and extend life – truly guides the company and can be felt in everything they do. In fact, several Medtronic employees referenced it specifically in their survey response (below). Medtronic sales reps see themselves contributing to the company’s mission, and take great satisfaction in that fact. For medical device job seekers looking for a challenging sales position, and who also want to give back – the company can really fulfill both goals.
Medtronic certainly has a reputation for treating employees well. Here’s what several employees told us in this year’s survey:
“Medtronic treats their employees with respect. They are always helping the community and giving us an opportunity to participate. We are told that work comes after family and faith and they mean it.”
“Medtronic has an amazing culture and really implores their representatives to run their business like a franchise. The organization bends over backwards even during times of a merger (Medtronic and Covidien) to ensure the satisfaction, safety and stability within the company walls. Great culture to work in, rewarding benefits and top of the industry compensation prove what a privilege and honor it is to work for Medtronic.”
