"Management needs to get in touch"

I have been working at Covidien full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Absolutely great company with huge potential. Despite some leadership, people can experience a variety of roles and responsibility. Top level management is very engaging.

Cons

Clueless in their succession planning, called TLR. Can't see a resignation coming and willing to pass along, even reward poor performers so they don't have to deal with the obvious.

Advice to Management

Take off the rose colored glasses and leave your "friendships"behind or let it continue to choke you. Look deep and accept responsibility for continued failures in you are of discipline.

    I have been working at Covidien full-time

    Pros

    Company treats the employees well. 3 weeks of paid vacation on hire. Good salary with bonuses if the company does well. There is a good work/life balance and the company has summer hours where you can work 40 hours a week M - Th and take off on Fridays.

    Cons

    Little infrastructure for a company as large as it is. Company doesn't see to plan as well as it could. Heath insurance benefits are not as good as prior employers.
