    I worked at Covidien full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great products to bring innovative solutions to patients around the world. Over 50k products that work from a band aid to electro surgery.

    Cons

    Was sold to other big company and they eliminated a lot of positions with the integration process. In the process they let behind a lot of talent.

    Advice to Management

    Rally need to evaluate the process of takeover

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Covidien.

    Interview

    Interview lasted about two hours. I interviewed with the Director of the R&D Team, a lead Scientist and three team members. I was given a tour of the facility and a practical test. The test involved a electrical component and a fluid dynamics component.
