I worked at Covidien full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

There are a good number of bright people who get things done. Compensation is good, people are friendly.

Cons

Management is often disconnected from the actual processes that makes them money. Middle management is working exclusively on the next promotion, and isn't paying attention to actually doing their job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Moving things offshore - back onshore - out of house - in house - offshore - onshore... isn't a plan. Neither is panicking when you realize you're not going to hit your deadline.
