  9. "Program Administrator"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Covidien full-time

    Pros

    A great job that provided me considerable income and the opportunity to squirrel away a sizeable amount in my 401K. No problems here. In the end, they did outsource my job to India.

    Cons

    I never had problems here and if my position had not been outsourced to India, I would still be there awaiting retirement however I'm retired now and left with a minor golden parachute so no worries.
