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.

    Pros

    Growing industry that rewards diligent work and delivering results
    The salary, bonuses and benefits are top 90th percentile
    Strong and consistent leadership and management
    Continuity of corporate goals and objectives through the years

    Cons

    Work/life balance is my #1 challenge to avoid burn-out
    Constant change drives challenges in how we succeed in executing objectives
    Low tolerance for risk taking that fails to deliver results
    People work on their days off to avoid the backlog of email, vmail and workload upon return to the office

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Never forget that it takes people and a healthy organization to successfully achieve business goals and objectives
