    Fantastic people who are trying to grow the company

    Advice to Management

    Invest in TRAINING for new managers especially those who have been given promotions because they were the "last man standing".

    Pros

    In general, the people at ConvaTec are caring and friendly. The medical device business is interesting and the company recently went public. Although the company may have some challenges as a result of going public, I think that it is off to a good start and has the possibility of future growth.

    Cons

    I do not feel confident that US corporate jobs will stay in the US.
