    I worked at Covidien full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    This company is constantly changing so there is always very good opportunity to move around. They also are pretty clear on expectations and reward those who perform.

    Cons

    There can be a fearful culture for those who are higher up since they do make a lot of changes that can affect careers without a lot of notice but these should be clear to anyone at that level paying attention. This is any large company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be claear with the employees what is going to happen as the integration into Medtronic progresses. They have fumblesd integrations before by keeping folks a little bit in the dark but seem to have been doing a great job lately.

    Former Employee - Engineering Intern in Hazelwood, MO

    I worked at Covidien full-time

    Pros

    Great work environment, fun work, great learning experience. A good place to learn what engineering in the real world is like. The other engineers and upper management take a personal interest in your development. Assignments are challenging and interesting.

    Cons

    Testing can become monotonous. Sometimes a change of pace is needed. I found myself doing a lot of the same things over and over.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Travel experiences would be fun. More insight into upper level engineering would be beneficial.

    Current Employee - NPD Engineer
    Current Employee - NPD Engineer

    I have been working at Covidien full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great culture and work place

    Very risky time with being acquired by Medtronics

    Covidien corporate campus in Manasfield will lose several jobs over the next few years as all of the corporate functions including global sourcing will move to Medtronics headquarters in Minnesota

    Cons

    Poor career development

    Design R & D in Medical Supplies needs a culture change as schedules are often missed and NPI launches delayed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees right during the acquisition or they will leave as the job market in Boston area is very good right now

    Problems with Medical Supplies R & D group with too many independent engineers that end up costing the company millions in late schedules on NPI projects and with poor designs
