High level of responsibility to do impactful work


Uppers

Firm culture and the ability to network with many people


Downers

I thought that a times, you had to do things just for the sake of doing them rather than because it really mattered. For example, as an intern you need to do 20+ hours of training that you never use!


Advice to Potential Interns

If you are interested in medical devices or health care marketing, Medtronic's internship program is exemplary.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Real-world project experience with a reputable medical device company


Uppers

There were a lot of opportunities to learn about the marketing role and how it fits within the organization. I also learned a lot about the company organization and culture through networking opportunities with other interns and colleagues in the company. The people were very smart, nice, and helpful with my questions.


Downers

There isn't anything worth noting.


Advice to Potential Interns

If you're interested in learning about what it would be like working in a big company, this is a great opportunity. The summer internship program is pretty structured and you get a good sense of what the team dynamics within your group and throughout the company are like. Also, this opportunity is a great opportunity for you to make sure you like the industry and job function. When you get to the internship, be sure to network with your peers and colleagues as much as you can. It's important to form relationships early on.


Advice to Management

One suggestion would be to perhaps share the end-of-internship presentations with all the interns.


Would You Recommend

Yes

opporunity to work with incredibly smart and talented teams and take ownership on projects of high strategic value


Uppers

Was able to present projects to the company's physician key opinion leaders - the top doctors in the industry flown in from Cleveland Clinic, Scripps, etc. Attended meeting of country managers in Amsterdam and presented how my projects could be implemented internationally Was able to learn a great deal about the industry - seeing some of their products being implanted live in an operating room; attending industry conferences; traveling to visit sales people across the US


Downers

more constructive feedback would have been useful; the feedback was always here is what you did well, which is nice to hear, but it also would have been nice to hear where I needed to improve


Advice to Potential Interns

It is a very mission driven organization; the vast majority of the company knows the mission statement almost by heart Minneapolis plays a big role in their corporate culture - they want people who are willing to go there and you can see the Minnesota roots in the culture


Advice to Management

Provide more transparent feedback in terms of where people stand and what they need to improve on. also, feedback on what the goals of the post-MBA rotational program are (i.e. are they trying to retain everybody beyond the rotational program, and if so what happens when people start getting crowded out as they advance in their career; or are they only trying to keep a select few, etc)

Marketing-based opportunity in the clinical department with freedom to be creative and innovative while working on a real business issue


Uppers

My manager Freedom to take my project in a variety of directions People I worked with


Downers

1-hour commute Presenting 4 times in the last 5 weeks


Advice to Potential Interns

Learn about the different divisions of the company, because they all operate differently and have slightly different work cultures


Advice to Management

Have fewer restrictions on the rotation aspect of the program. It's important to gain that breadth of knowledge across the company but MBA students also have other important issues (family-related, mainly) that make the rotation part of the program somewhat unattractive to some.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Marketing capabilities; the extent of learning; the extent of opportunities; the company values MBAs; people are really nice and willing to help; the company dares to assign me responsibilities


Downers

working environment - I don't like cube


Advice to Potential Interns

This is a really good company to work with - especially my location LA. Extremely hard for international students to get into - basically no way for the leadership program. Paid well. Trained well. If the candidate is a US citizen, grasp the opportunity - full time lead rate is high high high
