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

    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.
