    Pros

    Nice facilities, good management, good benefits, opportunities for growth, good work-life balance, great co-workers, fast paced, never a dull moment.

    Cons

    If you believe that you are "doing something good for humanity" by working at a medical device company, you are right. But remember, it's just another share-holder driven large corporation focused on making maximum profit margins this quarter.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on sustainable business, less on the quarterly earnings, and don't rely on buying your way to growth. That was the death of your predecessor, Tyco Healthcare.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Covidien.

    Interview

    It was a group interview with the supervisor himself. The questions were simple and each person had the opportunity to answer each question. It was mostly about if you had any prior experience as an assembler before.
