A ton of bureaucracy. Nothing can be done quickly and on time. This is on a plant level as well as corporate.

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

    Pros

    They have great 401K matching

    Cons

    The old Tyco "performance at any cost" ethic is largely still in place. The pressure to tell leadership what they want to hear rather than the truth was NEARLY insurmountable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read your own ethics training and act accordingly.
