    I have been working at Covidien full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Bosses don't micromanage, pay and benefits are still lower than expected in the area, but are still pretty good. They will only release quality product.

    Cons

    Bosses don't macro-manage. Constant 6 day work weeks are used to compensate for poorly maintained equipment. Management cannot get the support that is needed to stabilize/secure the ability to produce into the future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand that you can't keep up with current regulatory and GMP trends with equipment that was built in the 70s and 80s. Lots of help is needed to recover from the Tyco days.
