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 5 years)

    Pros

    Medical devices is an interesting industry; compensation is good, strong financial performance; great products.

    Cons

    Toxic work environment where only certain highly-valued employees will advance; opinions of others are not valued or desired. If you don't fit "the mold" eventually you will be made to want to leave. People get ahead by making sure others look bad and other highly-political moves. The organizational dysfunction is the worst I have ever seen. Somehow out of this great products are born.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't take everything so seriously...life is too short to not have fun.
