    I worked at Covidien full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Focused on success, clinical efficacy of products and being massively trained on the ins/outs of each ~~

    Cons

    A lot of 1st time surgical device reps - coming from ADP, copiers, and such brought an arrogant attitude at times. The seasoned reps with a company or 2 prior on resume where more pleasant to work with and compete against.
