Covidien grants paid time off and statutory holidays.
Two weeks of vacation is pretty standard and traditional, however you have to wait for 10 years to get three weeks of vacation and it would be nice to achieve that sooner.
good accrue of time bad way of using it with the point system
Too much work to take PTO
I've been working here for over 4 years so I receive 5 weeks off and next year I'll earn an addition week off for my 5 year anniversary. We also receive 12 paid holidays.
Great plan however, the culture is that you work constantly so very few people actually take all of their vacation time. And if you do, it is frowned upon in the Hernia division
Takes forever to receive more vacation time.
At the start of employment with Covidien you are provided 15 days of paid time off up front.
people that have more years in the company are not allowed there vacation time when needed and people that have less time with the company are allowed
No matter your experience level you only get 3 weeks vacation
similar as many other big companies
