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

    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.

    I worked at Covidien full-time

    Pros

    Large and aggressive organization with some of the best globally recognized Medical Device products/brands.

    Cons

    Poor current management that inherited a well managed organization and superior products from previous management. This is the only reason why they have been successful YTD. Only concern is own personal success. Teamwork is secondary to non existent. Within the Supplies GBU no opportunity for career development.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck with Medtronic, your going to need it.

    I worked at Covidien full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, co-workers were friendly and helpful, the work itself wasn't too bad but could be hectic at times.

    Cons

    Needs to improve communication between upper management and employees. Doesn't really address issues brought up by employees.

    Pros

    Everyone is really nice. Its a great environment to get to learn and ask questions.

    Cons

    The location of the plants themselves can be in areas that are less populated with less to do. Something to look out for if you are an extroverted young professional.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    The job was a good job. Excellent managers and supervision. The hours we worked allowed us to miss traffic. Overall it was an excellent experience working for covidien.

    Cons

    I am having trouble coming with very many cons. Maybe at times the hours expected to work could be long, but that typically is part of the job.

    Pros

    The benefits are great, good quality and compliance culture. A forward thinking company, being part of Medtronic now looks to be more of the same with new opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    It is of course a corporate, world wide company and that comes with the procedures and rules that sometimes can be a little confining, especially for hourly employees. From my experience with the growth of the company over the last 16 years, it has gotten a little management top-heavy, but maybe I just notice that more working in a relatively small plant.
