Pros

The people I worked with all seemed to get along with each other well. I seemed like it was the same for other groups.

The hours were reasonable.

Cons

The first couple of weeks working there were slow, but that is to be expected when you're new.

A lot of red tape, as with any medical device company.

    Pros

    Pay is above average and they have bonuses. But this also creates a trap, get used to high pay and can't find comparable job then.

    Cons

    Continuous cycles of layoffs. They've been averaging a round of layoffs about every 6 months for the time I've been here.

    Promotions based on relationships more than results. It's often more of who you know, and how well they like you that provides opportunity.

    Very sterile culture. Departments work in their own silos. No team building, no esprit de corps. Leadership talks in clichés.

    Advice to Management

    Really listen to employees instead of converting everything to a powerpoint slide, showing it at a Town Hall and saying leadership will be working on it.

    Pros

    Great opportunities for growth. Covidien's acquisitions and focus on cutting edge technologies will ensure Covidien's staying power in the medical device arena.

    Cons

    Upcoming changes in healthcare may/could effect current workforce, i.e., taxes on medical devices could result in additional layoffs or workforce consolidation.
