Hungry for good leaders who can communicate vision

Quality Assurance Manager (Current Employee) Utica, NY

ProsCovidien is focused on growing its core businesses, using the established base of products as the bedrock for expanding into new fields of products. Their benefits are above average in my experience, and the company is hungry for good leadership. There is plenty of opportunity for strong leaders to grow their spheres of influence.

ConsSenior Management on the whole (there are exceptions) seems less than thorough in communicating the company's vision, goals, and plans. Other than increasing brand recognition (through purchase of media-based placements--Fenway Park, for example) there is little evidence of a vision for where the company should be in the future.

Advice to Senior ManagementWhat is the vision that guides Covidien? If there is one, it is not being communicated to employees, especially ones not at corporate locations.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
