    Pros

    Good, Knowledgeable people at mid to lower levels.

    Cons

    R & D is poorly run and bad decision making (short term gain trumps long term success). Do not question leaders regardless of how little they understand (generic v. branded). Questionable business practices; poor ethics; Leadership by intimidation; Anything to save a dime including cutting corners and sacrificing quality. PM group led by micromanager who doesn't comprehend research yet influences every decision. Layoffs a possible strategy at any time to save money (2011 most recently). Running joke of the worker bees about Covidien is "We can't do it right the first time but we can do it again..."
