Pros

It was challenging with constant daily demands and putting out fires, but it was very rewarding in that I learned a lot faster there than I would at another medical devices company.

Cons

Putting out fires made it hard to make forward progress

Advice to Management

Don't let the teams run too lean, it can lead to burnout.

    Pros

    Covidien is onboard with work life balance.

    Cons

    Too many chiefs making the wrong decisions. Not enough industry experience, needs to listen to those that do have industry experience.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the ones that do the work.
