Pros

If you like to work hard, collaborate and make a different in the lives of many, work at Covidien. Opportunities and career growth are available for these individuals.

Cons

As with most large companies in regulated industries, there are many procedures and bureauracy to work to eliminate. At times frustrating, but some is necessary

Advice to Management

Minimize reorganizations. These can be very disrupting and cause uncertainty with the workforce.

    Pros

    Some of the smartest people I know work at Covidien - I miss the interaction and learning that made me smarter (and better). It is an intense time to be in med device/healthcare, but the inspiration and collaboration made it a great place to work.

    Cons

    Because of the rapid growth and fast-changing landscape, organizationally it could feel like a start-up (annual reorgs, new teams, new focus).

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more and recognize the ones that are driving change, not just the ones who are really good at presenting themselves.

  2. Moving jobs off shore is their main focus....

    Pros

    Was a nice place to work until Jose took over...

    Cons

    Good people...although they are laying those people off and keeping those who would stab their mother in the back to keep their job...

    Advice to Management

    Smarten up...you are hurting your customers by cutting the Indians and keeping too many chiefs. Cut the Directors and VP instead of the common worker who keeps your customers happy.
