I have been working at Covidien full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Learning and training opportunities, at least until they decide to freeze all spending. A good place to start your career and move on. Very stable company with a lot of growth.

Cons

Old school management. A place where you can still find managers without a college degree. The place is managed like a "mom and pop" shop making it very difficult to implement any new ideas.

    Pros

    Great pay and most people decent to work alongside. Usually a variety of daily work and projects. Location and facilities decent.

    Cons

    company culture change in swing - some parts of company onboard with change... others are not
    career pathing non-existent
    likes to hire from outside but does not/ cannot integrate inside/outside perspectives into one Covidien perspective

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    focus on vision and core values and personnally get involved in managing change.. please stop dictating from on high.. get involved with your direct reports and their direct reports, etc.

    I worked at Covidien full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    A biweekly paycheck. Not much else.

    Cons

    The leadership team is totally dysfunctional. Run by bullies. They swiftly get rid of those who challenge the establishment. Women have to serve in a "acting role" and then interview for their jobs while the men get promoted into them without competition. Its the ipitome of the good ole boys club.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to Mansfield would be to spend some time in Boulder and find out what is really going on there.
