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

Pros

Willing to invest in the business. Sees the group as the growth engine and has high hopes. Culture of pay for performance, expecially for sales.

Cons

Long hours, high expectations, unclear objectives and future. Seems to change direction often and doesn't provide good communication. Management does have their favorites.

Advice to Management

GIve more positive feedback, people are working hard, but not always recognized.

    I worked at Covidien as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked a couple of temporary assignments at Covidien before finding a permanent job outside of the company. I wish I could have stayed longer or gone permanent. My coworkers and managers were friendly and supportive. Projects were abundant and there were plenty of new learning experiences, which boosted my confidence as a young professional. Others that I worked with had worked for Covidien for several years and they spoke highly of the company, which added to my desire to work there.

    Cons

    The only downside was the fact that I found a permanent job outside of the company before I could find one at Covidien. I thoroughly enjoyed working here and would have loved to continue as a permanent employee.
