Medtronic Message Board


5 years ago

I have worked at startup device companies and they consistently were the last payor to cover the procedure and devices. When we met with them, it was almost like their mind was made up before our presentation. Who loses here? Their crappy margins or the patient? Patient first my ***.

Such a troll. Sales and marketing will be fine for years. Actually there will be more opportunities.

corporate positions like finance and accounting are a different story.
