    I have been working at Covidien full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Medical products is stable. Exposure to a lot of different functions within the couple to develop skill sets.

    Cons

    Limited opportunity for growth, pay is does not account for cost of living and in some cases below market value. Very high expectations and minimal direction.

    Advice to Management

    Development should be a shared practice between the employee and manager. There is little support from management to progress your career.


  2. "Great opportunities for entry-level positions - but may be less attractive to employees with more experience."
