    I worked at Covidien full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    No GPS in Company car so their current field service techs can continue going home early without any worries, cell phone, some good coworkers, and a paycheck. This once was a good reputable company to work for.......once.

    Cons

    Lay offs, micro managing, im so happy you rather spend millions on having your name on the boston sux green monster and the patriots, upper management does not care about service, last respiratory equipment created was 11 + years ago, new equipment keeps getting post poned, working hard and efficency has nothing to do with you keeping your job. Carlsbad people that facility will be closing soon. More cuts will continue......this is not a lean six sigma company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Customer are always number one, without prompt "service", you are simply saying you dont care about your customers. FYI....without customers you are nothing.

    Pros

    Most of the people at Covidien are great to work with. Hours and location of work are very flexible depending on you position within the company.

    Cons

    Company is very unorganized. Each plant is silo'd from the others with very little communication in between plants. Covidien does not follow many FDA and OSHA regulations. They know this and refuse to fix most of them. THere are no processes, everything there is tribal knowledge at best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people who are actually capable of performing their jobs.
