We are all only numbers

Field Sales Representative (Former Employee)

ProsCovidien has some great products on the Endovenous side of the business. Strong field sales groups before the layoffs in October 2012.

ConsEmployees are treated like a number. It doesn't matter how well you perform your job or awards you have won when they cut/layoff you are still just a number.
Marketing has missed the "mark" so many times. Always chasing the competition and missing prime opportunities.

Advice to Senior ManagementRealize talent when you have it. Remove dead weight. Just because someone lives in the correct area doesn't mean they are doing a great job. You cut the wrong people.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
