Pros

Willing to invest in the business. Sees the group as the growth engine and has high hopes. Culture of pay for performance, expecially for sales.

Cons

Long hours, high expectations, unclear objectives and future. Seems to change direction often and doesn't provide good communication. Management does have their favorites.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

GIve more positive feedback, people are working hard, but not always recognized.

    I worked at Covidien full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Covidien is a comprised of many Healthcare Divisions and provides opportunity for advancement. It provides excellent resources to advance your career if you are willing to put in the time and effort. Covidien is a great place to work but plan on long hours and managing life/work balance.

    Cons

    Covidien struggles with contracts, pricing. Slow process involved in putting together these contracts. Have lost potential big customers due to this. Response time is very slow in customer service requests. Poor Strategy and Communication between divisions. Little to no collaboration with divisions.
