    I worked at Covidien full-time

    Pros

    1. Interesting work making vital health care products. Latitude to run shift your way. 2. Good benefits and bonus.

    Cons

    1. Working periodic weekend shifts (12 hours each day, 24 total) for no extra pay or comp time. Same applies to all overtime, which is frequent. 2. Management working in opposition to one another. 3. When interviewing, I was told that there are many opportunities for advancement. After a couple years, I asked about advancement opportunities and was told to seek elsewhere for that. So I did and quit.

    Advice to Management

    Work together to accomplish meeting customer needs. Also need to do more development for your teams.

    Pros

    Pros were great tuition reimbursement, a stable job (at the time) and good benefits. Most of the employees were great to work with.

    Cons

    Management consistently contradicts themselves. They are constantly pushing for lean management yet will only support numbers based outcomes.

    Advice to Management

    Respect and listen to your employees. They are your number one resource. Not your stakeholders.
