Production engineering is demanding but great learning experience

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Irvine, CA

I worked at Covidien

ProsIt was challenging with constant daily demands and putting out fires, but it was very rewarding in that I learned a lot faster there than I would at another medical devices company.

ConsPutting out fires made it hard to make forward progress

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't let the teams run too lean, it can lead to burnout.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
