    I have been working at Covidien as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    A very few managers really do care about their reports

    Cons

    Too many managers, directors, and principals that don't have a clue how to run manufacturing business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the nepotism & hiring from state schools - get some real talent. Recent implementation of product/process development controls is a disaster - too inflexible and cumbersome to get things done in a timely fashion. One size does not fit all, Jose A.
