    Former Employee - Manager in Boulder, CO

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

    Pros

    Above average pay, good advancement if you can get into the "good ole boy" network. Work with some good people (but usually not for long, the good ones rarely stay)

    Cons

    No vision, no leadership, no support of rank and file. Company seems to exist only for profit of senior leaders and stockholders. No support for new product development: research money swings wildly from one year to the next...one time high, another time all money taken away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support research and development. Trim top heavy, and expensive leadership, and support rest of company

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

    Pros

    Great people to work with, lots of diversity in tasks and products, and a strong customer focus to better understand the market and product environment.

    Cons

    Management is constantly changing its mind, so projects are started and stopped, then often started again. Very little continuity in workstreams, and often no accomplishments at the end of the project.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow down and trust your people.
