Approves of CEO

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.

    I have been working at Covidien full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Bosses don't micromanage, pay and benefits are still lower than expected in the area, but are still pretty good. They will only release quality product.

    Cons

    Bosses don't macro-manage. Constant 6 day work weeks are used to compensate for poorly maintained equipment. Management cannot get the support that is needed to stabilize/secure the ability to produce into the future.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that you can't keep up with current regulatory and GMP trends with equipment that was built in the 70s and 80s. Lots of help is needed to recover from the Tyco days.
